Tavistock Event : New Date


The Thames Valley and Great Western Omnibus Trust has announced a new date for the Tavistock running day which was postponed in March due to the snow:

Sunday 24 June 2018

Radiating from the former Western National Tavistock Bus Station, free vintage bus services will operate to Princetown, Yelverton, Calstock, Metherell, Milton Abbot, Lamerton, Lydford and others, taking in the beautiful scenery of Dartmoor and mid-Devon.

We have assembled vehicles to represent the allocation of Western National’s Tavistock depot in 1968, plus one or two representatives of local independent operators, all giving free rides on authentic routes.

A feeder service from Plymouth will depart from Royal Parade (Stop A21) at 0910 (arr. Tavistock 1000), with return departing Tavistock Bus Station at 1645 (arr. Plymouth 1735). This service will run via Plymouth Railway Station in each direction. Another feeder service will operate from Okehampton, departing Fore Street Arcade (Stop C) at 0900 (arr. Tavistock 1000) with return departing Tavistock Bus Station at 1700 (arr. Okehampton 1800). Travel on all services will be on a first come, first served basis.

Vehicle owners: Please note that, because of the nature of this recreation and limitations on layover space, participation in this event is by invitation only. However, we’d be delighted to welcome your vehicle to our other running days throughout the year and hope that you'll enjoy the opportunity to come along to Tavistock as a passenger, perhaps taking advantage of our feeder services as detailed above.
