Take a trip with author and photographer Roy Dodsworth to the Trans Pennine Run, an annual gathering of historical commercial vehicles that attracts crowds each year. Dodsworth has been following the event since the late 1990s and has a collection of over 3000 images taken there. This book collects 262 of Roy's favorite truck photos, including a bit of history about each of the vehicles, many of which have been restored to their original livery. Every year on the first Sunday in August, enthusiasts gather to see one of the greatest displays of historic commercial vehicles in England. First organized in 1969, the Trans Pennine Run attracts an annual entry of around 200 vehicles 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. The vehicles start arriving at the famous Harrogate Stray where they are then displayed to the public. 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 enjoy being reminded of these beautiful old vehicles.
