Stephen Bigley  on "Vintage Bus Running Days"


Is this a scene from the summer of 1965 or 2005?  


Lines of preserved buses at a rally are very impressive but the idea of the talk was to show preserved buses running in authentic locations with authentic 1960’s and 1970’s backgrounds.  With perseverance and luck there was little to show that a photo was not taken forty or fifty years ago.


Authenticity also involves the right vehicles and we saw Western National buses in Devon, Midland Red in the Midlands, Liverpool buses in Liverpool and a Ribble coach on an empty M6, following the first half which showed King Alfred buses in Winchester.
