VIDEO: History retold with Cobb and Co Coach ride

HUNDREDS of people were transported back in time thanks to the Cobb and Co commemorative 90th anniversary coach ride last weekend.

Six wheeled horse-drawn vehicles and 75 riders made the two-day ride between Surat and Yuleba, with celebrations honouring Cobb and Co's rich horse-drawn carriage history including its most famous route - Service 177.

Event organiser Paul Masson said the service, which ran from Yuleba through Surat, once continued on to St George with changing stations situated every 25km.

By 1921, Cobb and Co had lost many of its regional mail contracts with only three services running - coming to an end with the last coach running from Surat to Yuleba on August14, 1924.

"Competition from trains, motor vehicles and aeroplanes unfortunately meant the end of coach travel," Mr Masson said.

Alex Kempton drove the coaches to Yuleba for the commemorations.

Mr Kempton's father 'Cracker Bob' was the last man to drive the coach service between Thallon and St George.
