Bristol HA6G Articulated Lorry
Bristol HA6G Articulated Lorry
Date:1962
Registration:427 EYO
Acquired by the Museum:1975
Current State:As acquired, unrestored
Delivered new to British Road Services in 1962, this vehicle, which is registered 427 EYO, is a Bristol HA6G Articulated tractor unit with a Longwell Green fibreglass body. It was based at Ipswich Depot, and was initially used on the overnight trunk service to Manchester before being demoted to more general haulage work. It ended its days as a shunter at Felixstowe Docks, from where it was withdrawn in 1975 for preservation.

The tractor unit is accompanied by a Bristol trailer, also from 1962. The trailer was collected from Ipswich Docks in November 1982.

A small team of Museum volunteers hope to commence the full restoration of this vehicle in the spring of 2008. We are seeking photographs and information on Bristol Tractor units, if you have any please contact the Museum.
