This website was initially created to document the restoration of AEC Reliance CDK172L - once part of the fleet of the well known independent coach operator Yelloway Motor Services of Rochdale.

Purchased as a relatively complete and mobile vehicle, many years of service and lack of maintenance had left the coach in a very tired condition with both the body and mechanicals requiring some extensive attention.

The aim was to restore the vehicle to as near original condition as possible, given time and the availability of parts.

This restoration was successfully completed in May 2015 so this website will now document our second project AEC Reliance WEB 410T once part of another equally well known operator, Premier Travel Ltd of Cambridge.

Also purchased as a complete vehicle back in 2006, it has been hibernating for the intervening period awaiting our attention. Follow both projects by clicking on the links below.

We hope that you find the information interesting and informative especially for any other coach and bus enthusiast who are contemplating a renovation project.

If you have any information regarding our vehicles which we may find useful, no matter how small, then please don't hesitate to contact us at



If you would like to visit us and view our vehicles please contact us by email to arrange an appointment. Please, under no circumstance visit the restoration site unannounced as access to the site and the vehicles stored there will be denied.

Security patrols are in operation.

This web site has been designed and maintained by the third member of our team - our very patient dad!
