I see from the events list that Aston Manor Road Transport Museum in Aldridge have their annual Open and Running Day this Sunday, 14th July 2019 – It starts at 10:00am and runs until 4:00pm and should be just the thing for vintage transport fans, bus enthusiasts, petrol heads and big and little kids of all kinds.
There will be stalls and displays, free bus rides, vintage cars and all the usual goodies for all the family to enjoy.
The organisers said:
This year we’re having a West Bromwich theme, with several former West Brom buses promised already, and there will be a display related to West Brom bus history as well.
For family visitors, there will be a good range of buses running free services on four or five routes – more information as we get visiting vehicle details confirmed.
Entry is a pocket pleasing £5 for adults, £2 for kids and just £13 for a family ticket.
There’s free bus service operating all day between various destinations and the museum in Shenstone Drive – see the timetable below.
While you’re there, you can check out all the great stuff in the collection, and talk to the volunteers, who’re doing a fine job.
This is sure to be a great event – please do pop along. The collection needs the support of the public to survive, and it really is a wonderful thing.
