Transport Festival - Sunday 3 November 2019

LVVS Transport FestivalFour of the Museum’s cars and 33 buses / coaches took to the road for our traditional end of season event this year, along with a healthy number of visiting cars, buses and coaches on display.

3,344 passenger journeys were made on 156 bus departures from Museum termini, on services to Lincoln city centre, shuttles to the car park at Teal Park and static bus display at Lindum’s on Station Road, and connecting the Museum with the Natural World Centre at Whisby and Doddington Hall.

While we could not repeat November 2018’s feat of having two buses carry passengers for the first time in over forty years, the Society’s W Gash and Sons Daimler (KAL 579) made its Transport Festival debut, having returned to the road at our Newark event earlier in the year. Another debut was a member’s 1939 Leyland Lion LT9, Eastbourne Corporation 12 (JK 8418.)

As ever, our thanks to everyone who took part, especially to the vehicle owners, our neighbours in and around Whisby Road, in particular Siemens at Teal Park and Lindum on Station Road, and all at the Hillcroft Business Park for the use of their premises, and the members and friends who volunteered their time on and before the day.

A list of the cars and buses that were on the road can be seen here.
