30 Oct 2018

Richard Delahoy

Well-known Transport Historian Richard Delahoy relates the history of a colourful operator whose coaches were once a familiar sight in London. City Coach Company of Brentwood became involved in the Southend-Wood Green service in 1928. It sold out in 1953 to Westcliff-on-Sea Motor Services, and the service became Eastern National's well-known 151, 251 and 351.
