577 was in Keighley on Christmas day 2014, supporting Keighley Bus Museum with the annual free bus service.


The route network serves Keighley and the surrounding area, including the Airedale hospital, operating primarily for the benefit of local residents, but also apealling to bus enthusiasts!.


Staffed by volunteers, 577 was teamed up with John Wright's "Dennis Dart", D15 of Pennine Motor Services, with the bus museum's own Daimler, 473 providing a heritage feel for the late afternoon.

2nd Vintage Bus Running Day.

Now privately owned and treasured,
see several members of bus fleets
from a bygone era, including of course our very own Black Prince Buses, appear in and around Leeds as
a reminder of how things used to be!.
The buses will run free services over routes linking tourist attractions and museums in the area, where Park & Ride will be available for you to easily link into the day.
The 26 route will serve The Middleton Railway, Leeds New York Street and Kirkstall Abbey, with the 46 route serving Thwaite Mills, Leeds New York Street and Armley Mills.
It would be great to see YOU there, sharing our memories-services will start from around 1030.
A booklet will be available on the day, priced £3.00, containing information about the vehicles involved, a little history and the timetable for the day.
All proceeds contributing to the continued preservation of
the historical buses!.

Spring Open Day Sunday 13th March 2016



The long established open day events at Lincoln are well worth a visit, allowing access to "hidden" areas of the LVVS museum, workshop and restoration area not normally open to the public.


The chance to ride on a huge variety of classic vehicles is also on offer, including old cars and buses from bygone eras!.


Refreshments are available within the museum building where a charge is payable to enter the show.


A preserved Black Prince bus will be in attendance at the LVVS open day event on Easter Sunday 2016, appearing on display and participating in the free shuttle services operating around the area for the duration of the event.




See You There!.

The 500 Group,

Teesside vintage bus running day..

The "Busfest" in Whittlesey near Peterborough, was something for all transport enthusiasts, and families, with links to a classic car show, local attractions and the centre of Peterborough in addition to a display of historic buses from all eras and areas. A Black Prince bus joined the display and helped out with the services. View the Blog for some more photographs.

The Morecambe vintage bus day 2016 was a superb event, with classic vehicles on display at the seaside, including, of course, a red and yellow Black Prince bus. Vintage bus services ran all day, linking local attractions and connecting with trains at Carnforth. 



This superb event is well worth a visit, with a line up of classic buses and steam or classic diesel train services running alongside, a good selection of trade stands and free bus services linking Matlock, Rowsley South, Chatsworth House and Bakewell, there is something for everyone, including rides on newly refurbished Black Prince 441, which will be operating in service on the free network of Peak Park buses.
