Tyne Tees Run, South Shields

Tyne Tees Run 2008

The annual Tyne Tees Run for historic commercial vehicles took place on Sunday when scores of commercial and military vehicles travelled from Stockton on Tees to the Bents Park in South Shields.

These guys are veterans of a number of these rallies and were enjoying showing off their military trucks despite the rotten weather (it was grey and quite wet.) Also on show were a number of vintage aged buses, ambulances, fire tenders, police cars, haulage trucks, and small vans.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/45 second, f5.6, iso 200

  2. I’ll be showing a series of photos from tomorrow about a classic car show that I went to on Sunday. Unfortunately American trucks, which look huge by the way, but I have some buses & a few cars to show.
