Preservation update

I think its time to have a look at what really we're all most interested in - the old stuff!

And firstly we'll go to the now pretty dispersed WNPG fleet. Of course as mentioned before they have been having problems sustaining the current fleet so have sadly had to cut back to just three buses these being LFJ 844W, VOD 125K and S412 GUB.

For the sales then:
LFJ 873W - Sold to Mel Williams (Cornwall Bus Preservation Group)
270 KTA - Sold to David Sheppard
OTA 290G - Sold to Colin Billington

It has now also been confirmed that the Cornwall Bus Preservation Group now own S529 RWP along with Leyland Olympian A754 VAF.

The Penzance Running Day is returning for this year and I must say this is a highly recommended rally. This will be held on the 18th April with more details nearer the time.

A week later on April 25th there will be a "Drive a bus day" at Westpoint. Again another event returning for this year, though this is only open to members of WHOTT.

Then on 30th of May, two events clash these being Devon General Society's in Teignmouth and Dawlish. Along with Roselyn's running day in Par. Again more details nearer the time.

That's all for now but keep an eye on the blog for information on forthcoming rallies.
