The Museum’s 1920s K-type bus attended, to take its place amongst the traditional fleet of Routemasters. K424 was taken from Acton to Wiltshire and back by low-loader, but operated a short distance under its own power at Imber.
Perhaps an even more unexpected sight was the presence too of the Museum’s Abinger Hammer bus shelter, recently restored and transported through generous sponsorship by the Hendy and Pendle Charitable Trust, Trueform and the London Transport Museum Friends.
By all accounts, this year’s event was the best attended to date. It took place in fine weather, after a very wet Friday, which made ground conditions challenging.Profits are donated to the Friends of St. Giles Church, Imber; the Royal British Legion Poppy Day Appeal; and Macmillan Cancer Support, the Stagecoach Charity for 2019.
