to promote the study and preservation of Leyland vehicles

Leyland Society Gathering - 2010

This years event was once again held in our Home Town of Leyland, at The British Commercial Vehicle Museum, BCVM, and was part of their Leyland Homecoming event held over the weekend of 10th 11th July.

Our Gathering was on the Sunday, and very fortunately, we were blessed with a very pleasant sunny day. Once again, there was a good mix of old and modern, and lorries and buses. By mid morning the parking area was almost full to capacity, in fact the last arrivals, some Double Deckers from Liverpool had to park on the adjacent road.

Amongst the lorries were some of our regulars, Pyattt's with 2 Octopus's, a Beaver artic and a Super Comet and Dave Wrigglesworth's 1953 Comet 90 in London Brick Company livery. All immaculately presented. Amongst the newcomers was John Kerr's 1929 RAF Type, new on the rally scene this year, as well as some other pre war lorries. There was also a good mix of Single and Double Deckers amongst the buses, with our friends from Birkenhead with their blue buses helping out by operating a shuttle service from the Museum to other parts of the town.

Other exhibits included the Cummins Engine stand, with an enormous V 18 engine on display, and our own stall, providing a meeting place for Members as well as selling our publications, badges and T shirts.

The Committee of The Leyland Society would like to thank Stephen Bullock and staff and helpers at the BCVM for all their help both before and on the day of the Rally. We would also like to thank all the Exhibitors for bringing their vehicles, some from many miles away, to this years Rally which was a great success.

There are some pictures which were taken at the event.
