August Bank Holiday at Wythall

Wythall Transport Museum was originally set up by the Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Trust, formed in 1977 as a registered charity. The museum site, based in Chapel Lane, Wythall, was acquired in February 1978. Buildings were opened in 1980, 1990, 2007 and 2012 to meet the Trust's determination to have a roof over all its vehicles.

The halls now accommodate one of the most significant collections of preserved buses in the country. In addition, two Birmingham fire engines and what is believed to be the finest collection of restored battery electric vehicles in the world are housed at Wythall.

Ken Jones visited the museum during the August Bank Holiday weekend when visiting vehicles were in attendance and sent the following photographs.

Wythall Transport museum organised a special run to Yardley Wood Garage where four
classic buses were posed in front of the building.
