The 40-seater Bedford Duple SB3, built in 1959, was in regular passenger service until 1988, finishing its working life in Cambridgeshire. Bought by Jon and Lyn Moore of Sidelines Coaches in 2003 and fully restored, the Bedford bus is regularly used for excursions and private hires including weddings and family parties.
