The Tykes London Bus Gathering 

London red buses took to the Town Centre streets as Keighley Bus Museum Trust (KBMT) hosted


Privately-owned examples of the famous red London Routemaster bus with its distinctive half-cab and open rear platform flocked to Keighley from Harrogate, York, Devil’s Bridge, Chorley, Huddersfield, Lincoln, Crewe, Stockton-on-Tees and Northallerton to join the event.

KBMT Chairman Graham Mitchell explained;

“The traditional Routemaster London bus is now an endangered species, with more and more being withdrawn from the streets of the Capital every month. The Routemaster was such an icon British bus design that there is now a huge national interest being shown in these buses. We thought it would be an excellent idea to open the Bus Museum’s 2005 events season with a gathering of such buses, and their earlier parents, the “RTs” (driven by Cliff Richard in “Summer Holiday”) for the people of Keighley to ride on and enjoy.”
