Southern National KSW joins our collection
We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Southern National 1852, the only surviving ‘National’ Bristol KSW, from Haynes Motor Museum in Somerset. Having owned the bus for 27 years, Haynes have selected our Trust as the best new home for 1852 on the strength of our restoration and charitable work to date. Find out more or contribute to 1852’s purchase and restoration.
 
Missing out on our magazine?
Our Supporters will soon be receiving the latest edition of our magazine, To and Fro’. As well as the latest Trust news, this quarter we reveal the scenic locations of Royal Blue’s legendary publicity photos, we visit Thames Valley’s smallest depot, and we remember the Tilling-Stevens buses and coaches of Western and Southern National. Become a Supporter and receive To and Fro’ for as little as £22/year.
 
Another Kingsbridge Triumph
Record numbers enjoyed the narrow country lanes and sea-side delights of the South Hams at our 10th Kingsbridge 7’6” Vintage Bus Running Day on Saturday 16th September. 43 buses gave 6,550 free rides on 24 different routes. Take a look at our Workshop Blog for a celebration of the day and all who made it happen.
