Why Doncaster Rovers feel the best is yet to come despite a ‘solid start’
to be displayed alongside the world’s largest collection of preserved trolleybuses. Many of
the vehicles attending will travel to the museum in procession from the South Yorkshire Air
Museum and through the town centre, leaving at 11:15.
Amongst the visiting vehicles this year there will also be a taste of the future in the
shape of the New Routemaster from London, as well as modern vehicles from local
Stagecoach and First bus depots.
A popular part of this event also sees a number of free vintage bus services
operating around the Isle linking the villages of Epworth, Haxey and Westwoodside with the
museum. These services give everyone the chance to experience the nostalgia and also
include shuttle services from Doncaster Interchange (Stand C6) at 11:30 & 12:00.
The museum will be open from 11:00 to 17:00 on the day and as well as the displays
of visiting vehicles, visitors can also enjoy free trolleybus rides and a transport related
market. The museums usual attractions are also open including children’s play areas both
inside and out, a well stocked gift shop and ever popular café.
