On 28th Apr 2017 1:25am, CKV 1D said: A 1951 Maudslay Regent III, seen here in Pool Meadow Bus Station circa 1960 -1962? It was withdrawn from service in May 1965 and sold for scrap to a dealer in South Yorkshire in July of that very same year. There were only nine of these particular Maudslays in the "Coventry Transport" fleet (numbered 117 -125) and sadly not one of them survive today? (I personally would give anything to be able to travel on one of these, or even just to be able to see one up close, but I just have to accept that it's never ever going to happen?).
Hello, I remember these. A driver that I knew well, Mr Ford, who had driven for CCT for many years, had his only serious mishap when driving one of these. The brakes were very slow acting he told me & he went into the back of a van whilst going along the London Rd. Then on a separate occasion, nearly came to grief coming out of the Pool-Meadow opposite Priory High school. He said that he literally had to stand on the brakes. Any comments please? Mr Ford is sadly no longer alive, but one of his conductors, Mr Tuggy aged 90 is still alive but very frail. He recalls the London Rd accident. ps. Thank you for the lovely picture, just as though it was yesterday.

I think there has been a "norzup" Quoted headline "A BLUNDERING bus driver could have done worse than follow the advice on the side of his double decker". Silly Billy.
