We are pleased to announce further details about the Celebration of Buses in Plymouth, on September 5th. We have permission to use Bretonside Bus Station for the day, and this will form the focal point of the event - with the free heritage bus rides operating from here. Vehicles that are planned to be in operation on the day:

824 KDV - Western National Bristol FLF

Western National 2019 824KDV

468 FTT - Western National Bristol FLF


AFJ 706T - Western National Bristol VRT


LFJ 847W - Western National Bristol VRT

First 38847 LFJ847W

VDV 134S - Western/Southern National Bristol VRT

270 KTA - Western National Bristol SUL

Western National 270KTA and 275KTA

L401 VCV - Western National Dennis Dart

These will be operating on a variety of routes, including to Plymstock, Torpoint and Yelverton. It is also planned that the final service 81, from Plymouth to Torpoint, will operate using a convoy of the route's vehicles in service on the day.

At the moment the weather isnt looking too bad either so lets hope for a really good turnout to bid farewell to First. For all their faults they will be missed!


  1. Hi I am afraid there will be a delay in your comments being posted here at the moment. The outstanding ones from yesterday / today will probably be posted after an extra posting goes live this evening. All will be explained later! Cheers Graham

  2. Its sad too see any bus company go, unfortunately losing western greyhound too unfair circumstances and an end of an era with first going.
