Join us for a day celebrating Midland Red, who were the largest bus operator outside London. With a museum visit and a chance to ride on these wonderful classic busses.
One of Rob Smiths other passions apart from canals and trains is buses so come and join us on a voyage back in time on the Birmingham Municipal buses. Its 50 years since we said goodbye to these busses and welcomed the blue and cream of West Midlands PTE. As well as special runs to commemorate the event we'll still be running plenty of bus rides through the countryside.
There will be lots of buses running on the 25th including the unique Midland Reds and a great new book to celebrate what was the largest bus operator outside London, now a distant memory.
Plus the annual visit from the Model Bus Federation with a fine array of models on display.
Start in Birmingham City Centre: We catch the one of their classic busses in Birmingham, outside the Alexandra Theatre for a trip to the museum. It’s a great way to start the event. Once at the museum we can look at the displays and choose one of their bus rides that go into the countryside and see some of the beautiful autumn colours
