The season starts!

There has been no post here for a while, although behind the scenes things have been going on to ready the collection for the season. I will soon post some details of a new acquisition and what has been happening to the fleet during the really bad winter, but this post is to remind everyone that the Bristol Vintage Bus Group ( is holding their first open day of the season this Sunday, March 27th, at Flowers Hill. The Collection will be represented by:

L8089, which will be brought up by Peter Davey
C8320, which was used earlier this week as a "backdrop" to the memorial service for former FirstGroup manager Alan Willoughby
353, which still has a slipping second gear, but arrangements are in hand to repair that.

The next major event for the Collection will be the Bristol Habourside Rally on May 22nd. If all goes well we hope to have up to EIGHTEEN vehicles there! More than some independent operators actually own!
