All aboard for memory lane with Keighley Bus Museum Trust
4:30pm Thursday 10th April 2014 in News
Keighley Bus Museum Trust spearheaded an event that attracted enthusiasts and families from across the region.
Visitors flocked to Bradford on Sunday for rides down memory lane as 35 vintage buses filled the city’s squares and streets.
The gathering was to mark the 40th anniversary of Metro – the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive – taking over the merged municipal bus fleets of Bradford, Leeds City Transport, Huddersfield and Halifax and Calderdale.
Buses of every hue, lovingly maintained by the Keighley trust and other local transport heritage groups, drew big crowds in Centenary Square and at Jacob’s Well.
Truck mechanic and trust member Kiran Tolsan helped organise the logistics of bringing the vehicles together.
“It’s been a team effort and it’s turned out to be really successful. There are lots of bus enthusiasts but also plenty of members of the public.
“We’ve had great support from transport groups from as far away as Derby and the West Midlands who’ve sent buses up.”
Others involved included Aire Valley Transport Group, the West Riding Omnibus Museum Trust and Transport Yorkshire Preservation Group.
