ILLUSTRATED FLEET HISTORY - STOCKPORT CORPORATION

Last Updated : January 21st 2016 (under construction)

This page lists ten Bristol VRs which were ordered by Stockport Corporation but were all destroyed by fire at the East Lancs factory before the chassis had been fitted with bodywork. One escaped to be repaired and bodied as shown below, but the rest of the chassis were beyond salvage and were scrapped without ever receiving bodywork. If you have any further information, news cuttings or photos of this event I would be delighted to hear from you at rob@robsly.com
