VISITORS this month to the Transport Museum in Wythall can take a trip back in time aboard one of its prize-winning collection of classic buses.

"More and more people are enjoying our classic buses which are a reminder of the days when they were the way most people got about," explained Malcolm Keeley, a trustee of the museum. "They are pure nostalgia for some while car users and kids relish the chance to look over the hedges and across the lovely countryside."

Volunteers run the museum, restoring and preserving around 100 classic buses, coaches, milk floats and bread vans.

The museum opens on Saturdays, Sundays, plus Wednesday afternoons in August, with the heritage bus running at 2.30pm.

The buses will run all day on Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday.

The museum in Chapel Lane, Wythall, is to the south of Birmingham, just off the A435 immediately north of junction 3 on the M42. Parking is free. Further details can be found on www.wythall.org.uk
