Aye, was then and a two hour slog from Circular Quay it was at 26 mph.

I understand things have gone downhill since there was the New South Wales Department of Government Transport. what a mouthful.

Albions - Biggar's gift to the world

My mate Maurice, known as "King Albion" over here, is never without an example of the breed, and we have worked with him on several runs - the most notable being a Park Royal to Scotstoun way back in 99.

We dropped Lexxy and JGS off at Thiefrow for their honeymoon and got on with some serious fun ourselves!

We took a week to drive from London to Glasgow with a motley crew of vehicles who came and went along the way with just a hard core doing the whole journey.

What a great way to spend a week - about eighty miles a day with great scenery, great mates and nice motors.

We were in the car - Thunderbirding the run - with a mobile phone on the dash, and cameras to hand!

We did a Bristol to Glasgow in 02 and a third was promised but we have somehow never got round to it!

One of those classy deckers would have been nice to have along - shame they are all upside down!

And Lathalmond - that's what I call a museum site!

Every time i've tried to visit the Albion Museum it's shut.
Used to visit there a lot when a kid with my dad or one of his drivers in Bedford OYs or later Thames Traders like this; ours were Dumfries based. VUS 49 was the only reg. I can remember

When DAF took over the Leyland truck Plant near Glasgow many of the locals correctly reckoned that the name would soon be "Leyd af":ugh:
