1. CAL194
1936 AEC Regent Park Royal, CAL194 had been Mansfield & District's 94. It then served Essex Police as a mobile road safety exhibition for nearly ten years: its condition belies its age, 30 years when this picture was taken. The front door is not original but an adaptation for its new role.
Photo taken Sunday 17 July 1966, Gt Waldingfield, Suffolk (about six miles outside Essex!)
2. FVO762
The Weymann trailer of one of the ex-Mansfield and District articulated buses, FVO762/3. The buses passed to the electricity supply part of Balfour Beatty and then to the East Midlands Electricity Board after nationalisation; seen here in a field and apparently used as a site hut (or derelict!).
Photo taken Wednesday 4 January 1967, near Ibstock
3. FVO762
This is a mystery shot and a most unusual vehicle. FVO762 was a Commer Superpoise of just pre-war or just post-war vintage and is seen here with a trailer of utility appearance. It seems to be a posed shot and not a wartime one, but what was its intended use? The ensemble was accredited to Mansfield & District, which I'm sure it's not, although it does seem to be registered in that area.
