Southwold Surprise

Tonight's planned post has once again been shelved as I got a most pleasant surprise at Southwold this afternoon. There in one of the coach bays was Felix of Long Melford's stunning 1947 Bedford OB with Duple Vista body. The 27 seater had been hired for a wedding and the happy couple were having pics taken on the pier before moving on elsewhere.

DBU 889 was new to Smiths of Wigan, but has been part of the heritage fleet at Felix Coaches since 1988. She certainly looked the part today.

And so there was a line up of three completely different single decker buses, the Three Buskateers if you will. All will have their fans, but even the BorderBus driver had to admit he came a rather poor third! My best wishes to the happy couple and thanks for providing me with a photo opportunity of my own!
