A Special 70th Birthday

Tuesday 20 September 2016 marks precisely seventy years since Thames Valley 446, our Bristol K6A, was first registered. 

So we're counting this as its official 70th Birthday!

The bus has a rich history, both in service and during its long career in preservation. We'd like to celebrate that history by collecting together as many photographs of it as we can for display and archive purposes.

A gallery is now beginning to grow on our website and it is hoped that, with your contributions, this will soon flourish into an extensive collection charting 446's first seventy years.

We'll also be celebrating 446's coming of age by taking it along to Oxford Festival of Vintage Transport on 2 October. New and existing Trust Supporters are invited to join us - sign up as a new Trust Supporter here and email us for details if you'd like to attend.

In the meantime, please submit your photographs of 446 via our Facebook page, or by email, stating any permissions or copyright restrictions there may be.

We can also accept photographs via our registered postal address, listed here (please include an SAE if you require photographs to be returned after scanning).

Happy 70th Birthday, 446!
