In 2009, a group of bus industry professionals achieved a long standing ambition to run a vintage bus service from Warminster in Wiltshire, to the abandoned village of Imber on the Salisbury Plain. It proved to be so popular that it has now become an annual event, with most journeys continuing across the Plain to parts of Wiltshire rarely seen by ordinary public transport users.
There are only a few days each year on which the road through Imber is open to the public and so this year we are aiming to operate the Imberbus service on Saturday 17th August 2019 with several London Transport Routemaster buses (plus a few newer ones) providing a bus service from Warminster Station to Imber and to other isolated locations on the Salisbury Plain. As the buses will be operating an ordinary bus service, there is no need for passengers to book in advance – just turn up and pay the conductor on the bus.
We will be providing more information about this year’s service on this website during the summer.

Just before Christmas 2018 Paul Gooderson took a trip down the River Danube and along the way stopped off in several countries. A trio of small albums have now been placed on the Flickr site from Austria (Vienna), Hungary (Budapest) and Slovakia (Bratislava), and feature some of the transportation at those locations. These can now be viewed by clicking here here and here
