Red Oktober Vehicle Weekend – Humberside: 1 + 2 October 2022
Based in the historic city of Kingston upon Hull, we made our first visit to Humberside for another great weekend of Eastern Bloc motoring
Friday: Early arrivals met on the way to Hull at the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum. Sadly, breakdowns, appalling weather (especially for those venturing south from Glasgow) and work commitments resulted in few taking advantages of photo opportunities to display vehicles in front of classic aircraft.
Saturday: We started at Hull’s great ‘Streetlife’ museum where we displayed our vehicles on the forecourt of this impressive vehicle collection covering transport through the ages. With a road run crossing the Humber Bridge, we arrived at the Fishing Heritage Centre, Grimsby. This award-winning museum, including trawler ‘Ross Tiger’, covers the rise and fall of East Coast fishing.
Sunday: Those staying in Hull crossed the Humber Bridge again with a road run to the National Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft. We spent the day here, riding and inspecting the world’s largest collection of trolleybuses. Highlight was being let loose on the museum’s road network for an Eastern Bloc parade of cars beneath the wires.
