At our Open Day in November 2013, no less than THREE buses made their preservation debuts at Dewsbury Bus Museum! The most noteworthy was West Riding 640 (BHL 682) - a Leyland PD2 that was new in 1948, and last carried passengers in service back in 1967. The transformation from a virtual wreck into an astounding masterpiece of preservation brought gasps of admiration from those who rode on it. It is truly a credit to the skill, determination and patience of a hard core of our members. Almost eclipsed by this were a Wallace Arnold Volvo B10M coach (H630 UWR) and Yorkshire Rider Mercedes 23-seater 2266 (N266 JUG).

Nearing completion we have West Riding ECW Leyland Olympian 577 (A577 NWX), and other projects making real progress include West Riding 827, (OWW 905P), a Bristol VRT dating from 1976, West Riding 73 (XUA 73X), a Leyland National 2, and West Riding 970 (WHL 970), the second of the only two surviving Guy Wulfrunians in the whole world. The other - 995 (UCX 275) - is already in operation with Dewsbury Bus Museum.
