For Enthusiasts

A varied fleet such as ours attracts a great deal of attention.

We’re not shy, and enjoy giving pleasure to those who take an interest in our vehicles. However please remember that this is a working garage and is not generally open to the public on an ‘ad hoc’ basis. However, group visits can be arranged at a suitable time – just contact our office first.

Heritage Fleet News Updates

Our fine heritage fleet, as you can imagine, requires a lot of care and maintenance to keep it in tip top condition and available for duty. Regular updates will appear on the right of this page under Latest Enthusiast News.

Buses currently being restored

We usually have a number of heritage vehicles under repair or restoration. Here is a round-up of some of them. Please visit our 'Under Restoration' Gallery for further photos and descriptions of work recently carried out.

HLJ44

This ex-Hants & Dorset Bristol KSW6A actually spent its first year in service on loan to London Transport, hence the LT insignia carried on the radiator grille. This historic bus joined Crosville in 2013 and is currently undergoing extensive overhaul, both inside and out. Mechanical work includes refurbishment of injectors, along with re-instatement of the original Autovac which draws diesel fuel from the tank and delivers it to the engine. The seats will be re-trimmed and the work will conclude with a full professional repaint.

NFM46

This Bristol LL6B, the last half cab single decker in service with Crosville, continues to undergo restoration to running order in our workshops. Mechanical work to the chassis and braking system is almost complete and bodywork repairs will continue in 2015, including some re-glazing. After a full repaint, it is hoped to add this historic vehicle to our active heritage fleet.

NFM67

Bringing up the rear of the long term restoration queue is our Crosville Bristol KSW6B. It requires extensive work, not having been licenced since 1975! Apart from the usual mechanical and bodywork issues, this vehicle also requires its front dome to be rebuilt. The Bristol AVW engine has been removed for rebuilding. Parts have started arriving for this bus, the most recent being a new front wing.
