There has been recent mention of this Bedford SB, MJB481, in relation to an advert. New to Chiltonia of Chilton Foliot near Hungerford in May 1956, it passed the following year to West Wight Motor Co on the IOW. Acquired by Lodge’s of High Easter, Essex from Abbeyways of Halifax in 1989, MJB481 is a Bedford SBG (now diesel-engined) with Duple Vega bodywork of a type once so common that many of us took them for granted.
Lodge’s ran several SBs, their secondhand PAJ487 being very similar to MJB. Fully restored by them, this is one of several ‘vintage’ Bedfords they operate (see here ) and is seen here on an EBEG enthusiasts' visit c.2003.
