The restoration of AEC Reliance CDK172L

Other Yelloway Survivors

Yelloway operated a huge fleet of vehicles over the years and maintained a yearly renewal programme right up until the retirement of Hubert Allen in 1985 and the sale of the company to Carlton PSV. Former Yelloway vehicles were eagerly snapped up by operators once they were available for sale and many saw years of additional service, often passing to several additional owners before being retired.

It is now nearly 30 years since the end of the original Yelloway operation and only a handful of former vehicles survive. The following is a list of known survivors (as at Dec 2014) from the former YMS Fleet.

It does not profess to be the definitive list and is only based on information we have gathered ourselves.

If you know the whereabouts of any other survivors please let us know!
