The Trucks of the Trans Pennine Run: A Photographic History

The author of the book, Roy Dodsworth, spent his entire working life in the police and retail security sector before becoming a writer in his later years. A strong passion for cars, buses and trucks led him to an impressive library of more than 20,000 images of vehicles in his personal collection. Roy now fills his time as a regular writer for both club magazines and enjoys being the proud owner of two classic cars. As an avid photographer and car enthusiast, Roy’s particular interest for the Trans Pennine Run has led to the capture and collection of over 3,000 images since the late 1990’s which until now had never been seen. In his latest book ‘The Trucks of the Trans Pennine Run’ Roy shares his library of images for everyone to admire – and they cannot be missed!

First organised back in 1969, the Trans Pennine Run attracts an annual entry of over 200 vehicles from all over the UK. Every year on the first Sunday in August, hundreds of enthusiasts gather to see one of the greatest displays of historic commercial vehicles.

The Trucks of the Trans Pennine Run includes a collection of 262 photos of Roy’s favourite trucks from the event, alongside a bit of history about each of the vehicles - many of which have been restored to their original livery.

Roy’s book is a must-read for any driver who has participated in the run or for people who simply appreciate the timeless beauty of vintage vehicles. Current and former truckers or people with an interest in transport history will also not be able to put this book down due to the stunning imagery that Roy has captured over the years.

The book is due for release in September 2016 and can be pre-ordered today from the Old Pond website. Get your hands on a copy of this fantastic read – do not miss out!
