New Pals for Old Buses

A brand new blog, and look - already a follower...


You join us at a really exciting time for the Trust, as we look to make some new friends who perhaps we haven't met before. We hope the blog will be a great way of doing this, a chance to inspire you with our vehicles and our mission to keep them alive for the nation; we hope you'll make this the first of many, regular visits to learn about buses from a bygone age.

We've also launched a new Facebook page which, if you follow it, will update you with opportunities to ride on our vehicles, and send you some pretty pictures from time to time.

And if you want to get to know us a little bit better, our main website has more detailed information on the Trust's mission, and our many achievements to date.

The online world is a great way to inspire, but of course, nothing beats seeing the buses in person and learning from them up close. This weekend, we'll be exhibiting in the heart of the Thames Valley, with our stand at the Fawley Hill Steam & Vintage Weekend, a charity event hosted by Sir William McAlpine in the garden of his estate. (Shouldn't every garden be full of old buses?)

Our 1927 Great Western Railway Guy FBB will be joined on our stand by vehicles from some of the Trust's friends of old, forming a display that represents many different eras and types from across the Thames Valley & Great Western Corridor. We hope this will be a great place to meet new people with a thirst for learning about bygone buses - perhaps you'll join us?

We'll soon be posting about some of the many opportunities to get involved with the Trust, and if you think you could play a part in what we do, be sure to come back over the coming weeks to find out more. Or drop us an email now, to

But for now we hope you'll enjoy getting to know us a bit better. We really look forward to getting to know you.

P.S. We have a new logo (click to enlarge). Which bus is your favourite?
