Museum reveals five-year plan and retires Trans Lancs show


Salford 235 (BBA 560), the 1939 Park Royal-bodied AEC Regent, will take centre stage at next year’s centenary celebration.
A standout participant in the cavalcade of restored double-deckers on 19 October was the only Atkinson double-decker ever built, Stalybridge, Hyde, Mossley & Dukinfield 70 (UMA 370), the 1955 PD746 with centre door Northern Counties body.
Eleventh in the Transpo 50 cavalcade was Leigh Corporation 15 (PTC 114C), a 1965 AEC Renown with lowheight East Lancs body.

The Greater Manchester Museum of Transport is giving vehicle owners an opportunity to plan their longer-term restoration work by announcing its next five years’ plans for major themed events. It has also decided that the 2018 Trans Lancs Transport Show at Heaton Park — this year’s was cancelled at short notice — was the last and that after over 40 years the event has been retired.
