BUS & COACH
RUNNING WEEKEND
Sunday 22nd May 2016
A frequent service operated between the bus museum and the Isle of Wight Steam Railway at Haven Street station.
There was also a service between the museum and the bus station.
Additional excursions were provided and I took the opportunity to take a ride to Seaview and back on GDL 764. This 1950 Leyland Titan of Seaview Services is one of my childhood memories of Ryde. This was my first chance to enjoy this bus. The current owner was on board to explain the history of the bus, the company and the route.
