Throwback Thursday: Lodekkas on tour

An interesting line up of buses at the 1985 Suffolk Show in Ipswich
(Syd Eade)
In response to a report last week on Eastern Counties Lodekkas, Syd Eade has been in touch with a very interesting photograph from his collection.

Photographed to the right is a line up of six visible Eastern Counties double deckers. The trio of Lodekkas to on the far left of the shot were operating their last ever private hire duty, which was conveying a large group of girl guides to the Suffolk Show in Ipswich back in 1985. FLF448, FLF456 and FLF470 were the three in use, alongside a number of other Eastern Counties buses.

Once again, a thanks to Syd for his regular contact and use of his excellent archive.
