All the four preserved B-type buses were displayed during the day on the Piazza at Covent Garden.This was a unique and possibly never to be repeated event, in which Friends' volunteers assisted the Museum with the transport logistics and event stewarding.


The four B-types are:

B 43 "Ole Bill" owned by the Imperial War Museum and on display at Covent Garden for the past four years

B 340 owned by London Transport Museum

B 1609 in private ownership

B 2737 Battle Bus, in World War One khaki livery and owned by London Transport Museum 


The gathering was timed to co-incide with the move of Battle Bus into the London Transport Museum to replace "Ole Bill".
