Royal Blue Run, 2018

Our 2018 Royal Blue Run will take more than ten vintage coaches on a three-day adventure from London’s Victoria Coach Station to Sussex, Hampshire, Dorset, Somerset, Devon and beyond. Find out more, including where you can see the coaches, and follow the live updates on our Facebook page.

 

Tavistock in Sunny June

Our postponed ‘Day Out in 1968’ goes ahead on Sunday 24 June 2018. Join us to enjoy an authentic line-up of vehicles amidst the unspoilt scenery of Dartmoor and this fine stannary town. Programmes (unchanged from March) are still available to pre-order online

 

Thames Valley & Reading Success

Our Thames Valley & Reading Running Day proved to be a great success, with over 4,500 passenger journeys recorded. Thames Valley and Reading Corporation vehicles were joined by those from neighbouring fleets to recreate routes including those of the former Reading Trolleybus network, closed 50 years ago.

 

An All-time Record

Our 2018 Penzance Running Day resulted in 6763 passenger journeys, a record for our events to date. Thanks go to all our volunteers and to our friends at Cornwall Bus Preservation Society who, working together, brought a huge amount of interest and happiness to South West Cornwall in April.
