Graves Coaches, Redhill, Surrey (Foden NPL 900). Unknown date. Unknown publisher.
Comment 1

Bill Armstrong from Kidderminster posted this comment on Sunday 09 February 2014 18:40:00.

To say that I was pleased to see this picture is an understatement. In the early Fifties, I was a pupil at Walton-on-the-Hill C.ofE. Junior School and a party of boys went to Wembley to see a Schoolboys International football match. Football didn't interest me then and nothing has changed. What I do remember is that the coach that we went in was a Graves half-cab Foden, an unusual vehicle to say the least. Does anyone know if the company had any others of this make, please? If not, it must have been this very coach that I went in. Other transport items are also remembered.

Incidentally, my maternal Grandfather was born in Garibaldi Road, Redhill.

My Grandfather Robert Kimberly Fagan used to drive the coaches for Graves in the 50s and 60s and ironically lived in Garibaldi Road

Yes, Graves did have other Foden coaches - a total of five altogether. Four of them were similar half cab Fodens - NPE 152, NPG 517, NPK 806 and NPL 900. The fifth Foden coach was one of their rear engine models - RPD 250. All carried bodies built by Metalcraft from Blythe Bridge, Stoke-on-Trent. They were delivered between 1949 and 1952 and the last was taken out of service in May 1964.
