When I was a AA patrolman in the late sixties and beginning of the seventies all boxes had to be cleaned daily

If you head to Beadnell Northumberland looking for the AA Box, you will more than likely drive past and think it doesn't exist. Off in the trees at the side of the road.

Foiled again. :wink: Apparently 'J' was also a Geordie registration. I has assumed the bus reg was from Jersey.

Have some more pics from 'the North' appearing soon.

Don't remember seeing the bikes, they are probably in the collection down at the garage. This was up behind the bus and tram maintenance sheds.

Not as old as it looks, built in 2007 on an Iveco Chassis. J according to old classic car was issued by Durham County office for vehicles between Dec 1903 to November 1922.

I know the busses are reproes but beautifully done, real works of art. The repro loco's are even more brilliant but not running last week unfortunately, I believe in addition to covid one needs a new boiler.

Picked up my new car at the weekend from Kendal, south of the Lakes, which allowed a diversion via Dunmail Raise (under the pretext of climbing Helvellyn!)

Box in good condition and well kept.

Dark Grey 3008 is my new one.
I have now added Dunmail Raise to my own personal collection
