  OUR COLLECTION  
     
  We currently have 17 vehicles in our care, spanning an operational period of more than sixty years, between 1927 and 1990, across the entire area of TV&GWOT interest including Slough, Reading and the Thames Valley, Bournemouth, Taunton, Exeter and Penzance  
     
  We also have the use of a significant number of vehicles from private collections which, together with an extensive archive and museum facility, enable us to offer a comprehensive education in the evolution of road transport through the twentieth century.
