The Museum’s globetrotting 1952 AEC Regent – RT2775 – which the Museum has returned to the condition in which it toured the USA/Canada when new, won yet another award at the Showbus event yesterday (Sunday 16 September). Against some stiff competition from amongst the 75 AEC buses and coaches at the event (commemorating 100 years of the marque), the bus was judged “Best AEC” of the show. The prize was presented by Leon Daniels, Transport for London’s Managing Director, Surface Transport and accepted by the Museum on behalf of all those who worked so skillfully and successfully on the restoration.
