DG100 - the year so far

Thursday, 16 May - Saturday, 18 May:

Committee members of the DGS joined Stagecoach South West staff on the newly-painted 'Exhibition Bus' (a retired Stagecoach Solo) at the Devon County Show.  We estimate that c 2,500 people visited the display of Devon General archive material over the 3 days and this was very well received.  In addition, the Trust's Regent III, NTT661 was on display as well as the Stagecoach double-decker painted in special commemorative livery

Easter Sunday saw the first event of the DG100 celebrations in the form of a reunion of former Devon General staff on the site of the old Newton Road depot in Torquay ... now an Asda store.  Easter Sunday was the only day on which this could realistically take place as the store was closed and they kindly allowed us to use their car park.  Double deckers 513 and 925 were both in attendance and glorious weather no doubt encouraged a good attendance.  A short trip around Torbay followed and was enjoyed by all.
