Cardiff Transport Preservation Group invites you to “look in the loft”, in the garage, under the stairs or anywhere else!
Like any voluntary organization we need help to run our preservation group, if you’d like to help and you have any items of local transport interest which you would like to contribute to our museum collection, then please let us know. Bring them along to The Bus Depot, at Broad Street, Barry on Fridays and Saturdays or email us through the website.
- Any memorabilia from the bus companies of South Wales, past or present.
- Needed urgently: one Guy Indian Chief’s head mascot to fit the front badge of our Aberdare Guy LUF that is under restoration, we have the back plate just need the Guy Indian. These items were often taken for souvenirs by garage staff and enthusiasts alike, do you have one you could offer us?
- Bus destination blinds, representing any South Wales operator but particularly Cardiff. Corporation, Western Welsh and Red & White Services. Also old Timetables from any operator and any transport memorabilia of local interest.
- We also from time to time have transport collectable items for sale and have a large selection of bus and trolleybus photographs always on hand. These are normally on sale at our two main heritage vehicle rallies held in June and September (see our events calendar) and at other events we may attend.
Items For Sale
From time to time we have mechanical and body spares available to groups and individuals, to keep their prized possessions running. We will advertise our surplus items here when available. Remember, anything from, photographs, buttons and badges, to bus parts, we are interested.
