ELEGANT buses of a bygone age, which haven't been seen in Exmouth for half-a-century, are being dusted off this Bank Holiday Sunday.
On Sunday, May 30, residents and visitors to Exmouth will have the rare opportunity to travel, once again, on a range of special heritage buses.
The Devon General Society, thanks to Stagecoach, will be running free services from the bus station between 10am and 5pm to Woodbury, to the World of Country Life, at Littleham, Budleigh Salterton, along the seafront and around the town.
Nick Craig, one of the organisers, said: "The buses, complete with conductors, will include the AEC double-deckers from the 1950s and 1960s, the Leyland Atlantean 'Seadogs', and the Bristol double-deckers of the 1970s.
"The single-deckers will include a Leyland National of the type that was swept aside by the torrent of Ford minibuses in the mid 1980s.
"And, just in case you have forgotten them, there will be one or two of those Transits as well!
