Whilst Hedingham and me have nothing in common, other than the county of Essex, this coach did catch my interest when it was put forward as a preservation prospect on a Facebook preserved owners group.
There’s nothing wrong with it so it was too good to scrap, but with DDA regulations for coaches not far off in the distance and Hedingham moving away from Coach work.........at 17 years old scrapping was a real possibility. Hedingham didn’t want to see it scrapped and so it was quietly advertised in preservation circles with a view to securing its future.
The price was right so I went for it.
It was collected from Hedingham’s Clacton depot on 23rd November 2017.
