Freddie the Foden

The ever expanding Plymouth City Transport Preservation Group (PCTPG) have taken on a very interesting new member from Plymouth Citybus in the form of 901 the excellent Foden recovery truck “Freddie the Foden”. It always nice to see some of the un-song hero’s of the fleets getting preserved alongside the more normal buses.

Thanks to Mike Hudson for the photos.


Sorry for the long wait for a new post – too many other things on the go at the moment! I will try and catch up with some of the other blog links this week. Having to replace Google Reader has played havoc with my ‘reading list’ but I think I am now almost back up to speed so should be able to go back through all the blogs I follow over the next few days -
