Since it’s inception the group has organised a number of trips to transport related locations using either luxury coaches or vintage buses. These are open to everyone and are held to raise funds for the group.

Our Next trip

The group is currently looking at locations and dates for trips in 2024, details will be posted here as soon as they are agreed. Hopefully we can look forward to some more “Grand days Out”. If you have any suggestions as to locations to visit or have joined us before and have any ideas how we can improve, please email us at
