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.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 would like to visit us and view our vehicles, please contact us by email to arrange an appointment.
