Several Terex earth-scrapers, off-road dump trucks and a selection of cranes and draglines, the majority of which are in running order.Some of the "smaller" vehicles are often seen at gatherings; Dave drives the Rotinoffs and Scammels to local rallies, and most years loads a Rotinoff onto his low-loader trailer and hauled by the Renault Magnum - itself now a vintage exhibit - sets off all the way to the Dorset Steam Fair, a distance of some 270 miles each way.Peter has a vast collection of photos and literature relating to road transport, and has researched many Yorkshire road transport related businesses and is at present working on a presentation of the history of South Yorkshire Motors of Pontefract.This is a subject especially dear to his heart, as he has for many years owned a fine Albion coach, painstakingly restored in the livery of its original owners, South Yorkshire Motors.Being a born-and-bred Yorkshireman, Peter tends to favour Yorkshire manufacturers and operators, but tonight, just for a change, the subjects were a Suffolk farmer with a truly amazing collection, and a Lincolnshire haulier, who from humble beginnings built up a considerable road transport business.
As with many former WW2 airfields, Rufforth is now home to several businesses including Rufforth Gliding club, who kindly allow us the use of their premises and adjoining runways, which means that space is not a problem no matter how many vehicles turn up.
A great evening's entertainment and nostalgia for those of us who remember the early days of steam rallies in Yorkshire.
Our thanks to Kevin for bringing along the photos, and telling the stories. -------------------------- YORKSHIRE AREA BRING YOUR VEHICLE DAY AT WHITWOOD TRUCK STOP Sunday 8th October.
South Yorkshire were one of the pioneers of long-distance express bus services; in pre-war days they operated a seven-day a week express coach service from Leeds to London using American Reo petrol engined coaches.
This was long before the days of motorways, so every town on the old A1 had to be passed through, and bearing in mind that these coaches would do about 5 mpg, it's hard to imagine how the firm managed to make a profit! As has been the tradition for many years in the Yorkshire Area, the month of June heralds our Bring Your Vehicle night when members are encouraged to leave the car at home and venture out for the evening in something a little older.
That love of vintage machinery is still alive and well in the Parkin family, the guest for our October meeting being Kevin Parkin, grandson of the aforementioned H Parkin.
