about this item

Every year on the first Sunday in August, hundreds gather to see one of the greatest displays of historic commercial vehicles. First organised in 1969, the Trans Pennine Run attracts an annual entry of around 200 vehicles coming from all over the UK. The event starts at Birch Services on the M62 at Manchester at about 7. 30 in the morning and runs for 64 miles via Rochdale, Halifax and Bradford, taking in some of the finest Yorkshire scenery along the way. From 11. 30 the vehicles start arriving at the famous Harrogate Stray where they are then displayed to the public. Avid photographer, Roy Dodsworth has been following the event since the late 1990s and has a collection of over 3000 images taken there. This book collects together 262 of Roy's favourite truck photos, including a bit of history about each of the vehicles - many of which have been restored to their original livery. The Trucks of the Trans Pennine Run is a must-have for any driver who has ever participated in the run. Current and former truckers and anyone else with an interest in transport history will all enjoy being reminded of these beautiful old vehicles. Roy Dodsworth spent his working life in the police and in retail security. He has had a lifelong interest in cars and buses, as well as trucks and has over 20000 images of vehicles in his photographic collection. He owns 2 classic cars - a Triumph 2500S saloon and a Bertone X1/9 sports car and writes regularly for both Club magazines. He isealso a regular contributor to Classic Truck magazine, Buses and the HCVS monthly magazine. Roy is now retired and lives in Bradford.
