Something Big, Coming Soon

We will soon be announcing an exciting new acquisition. All will become clear in To and Fro’ 008, landing shortly on the doorsteps of our Supporters. A sneak preview is also given in our Penzance Running Day programme – order your copy now. As ever, we welcome volunteers to help maintain and resource our vehicles – see our Supporters page for ideas on how you could be involved.


A Special Season

Our year of special events and surprises began with our Coach Festival in March, celebrating 85 years of London’s Victoria Coach Station. 2017 also sees our 10thPenzance and 10th Kingsbridge Running Days. Whether you get involved as a volunteer or come along for the ride, we’ve plans to make both occasions extra special. Entry forms for all our events are available by clicking the links in the listing opposite.


Winter Restorations

Supporters have been helping with several of the Trust’s Winter projects at our bases in Berkshire and Devon. The extensive restoration of our 1929 Royal Blue AEC Reliance continues, with the body frame beginning to take shape. Other advancing restorations include the 1927 Leyland PLSC3 Lion, the 1965 Bristol FLF6B and Southern/Western National 692 (EDV 555D), a 1966 Bristol SUL4A saloon, newly placed on loan to the Trust.
