On a slightly chilly Sunday 3rd of November, We’re off on another adventure as we go to visit our friends at North East Bus Preservation Trust to see some of their exciting projects and of course to catch up after a busy rally callendar. Leaving our usual Stockton Pickup point, with a relatively good crowd of members and friends as we travel north to the Wardley shed of the NEBPT in Gateshead.
We arrived at NEBPT by around 10.30am to be greeted by Chairman Peter Elliott and his daughter Caroline, we were given a short talk about the vehicles and the history before we were given the opportunity to explore another fantastic preservation group in the North East of England and see some of the ongoing projects that the team have at Wardley.
Vehicles from Economic, Sunderland Corporation, Northern and United yesteryears were just some of them in various stages of restoration within Wardley and this gave us a great insight into the work currently ongoing and the efforts to bring rare and historic vehicles back into use. After some light refreshments, which were kindly supplied by Peter, it was time to head home. We had a great time, we saw some fantastic vehicles and an enjoyable morning out to see NEBPT and the work they are undertaking on their vehicles.
