Barry's iconic transport collection acquired another vintage bus and recently welcomed a visit from the National Association of Transport Museums (NARTM).

Mike Taylor, chairman of the Cardiff Transport Preservation Group, hosted the visit just as the Barry bus collection expanded.

Mike shared his pride in their exhibits, saying: "it was a good opportunity to show off our heritage bus collection and what we do here in Wales.

"We also showed them progress on restoration activities on our collection of over 60 buses and coaches which range in age from 1933 to 2006."

The new acquisition, a 75-year-old Crossley double-decker bus, previously sat in storage at the National Museum of Wales for about 40 years.

"We are especially pleased to now have this bus in our care, so more people can see it," he said.

The NARTM team visited the Bus Depot on Broad Street, praising the "well planned weekend" and expressly stating "the amount of work in progress" had very much impressed.

On the visit, the NARTM visitors toured Penarth and parts of the Vale of Glamorgan in a 51-year-old former Merthyr Tydfil Borough Council bus.

The public can expect to see these gems at The Bus Depot on May 5 for the Spring Running Sunday.
