BattleBus – mission acomplished!!!

The TTTT organisers are extremely pleased to confirm the attendance of the London Transport museum’s “BattleBus” (and mobile exhibition) to Apedale this year & we are extremely grateful to the museum’s staff for being so obliging.battle_bus

Buses like these were used during the First World War to ferry troops to the front line – their use both preceded and complemented the later narrow gauge railways. So, the Bus is an important part of the story we want to tell. Watch out for it on active display around the site!

Although everything is in place to ensure that the bus attends – we always welcome support (publicity & monetary) as these things are difficult to arrange and often costly.
