Royal Blue 2017

 

 

All fifteen vintage coaches successfully completed our long distance run from Northampton to Bournemouth, Exmouth and Windsor. Re-live the highlights through our video and photos on our Workshop Blog.

The sun shone throughout the three day run, resulting in spectacular photographic opportunities for spectators. We’d love to see your photos; please email enquiries@tvagwot.org.uk or post them on our Facebook page if you’d like to share your favourites
   

Didcot Transport Rally

 

This year’s Didcot Rally was a great success with vintage bus services running on five routes from Didcot Parkway Station. New routes for 2017 were a circular service to Chilton via Harwell Village and Harwell Campus. The history of AERE Harwell’s staff transport bus fleet was a main feature of this year’s programme and memories and photographs will feed into a future publication.

   

Something Big has arrived

TV&GWOT is delighted to announce the acquisition of 1976 Reading Transport VR 38 thanks to the generosity of a TV&GWOT Supporter who owned and undertook this exceptional restoration over many years.  An appeal to fund its ongoing maintenance and use is underway, with options for getting involved from as little as £5 per month.  The first TV&GWOT trip was to Brighton on 7th May where 38 was placed 2nd of the post 1949 passenger vehicles.  Click here to find out more……
