With lockdown and social distancing measures still in place, the Transport Museum, Wythall is unable to hold its planned Midland Red Day on Monday 25 May, so to give enthusiasts, museum visitors and members some compensation the Museum has decided at short notice to hold a Midland Red Day virtually on Facebook.

The Transport Museum Wythall is to hold a Virtual Midland Red Day on Bank Holiday Monday. A virtual bus ride will be available aboard SON GHA337. TRANSPORT MUSEUM< WYTHALL

“We will be posting a variety photos and videos from previous events throughout the day as well as photos of current Midland Red vehicles,” explained Museum Press Officer Denis Chick. “There will also be a Virtual Ride on a preserved Midland Red bus – hopefully our 1940 SON, GHA337. Visiting vehicles are welcome, buses of a different colour or from your favourite fleet. Visitors are invited to post a picture from 10am on the day. Let us all see a picture of your favourite Midland Red bus from the past or a bus that you would like to see at a future Wythall event. We hope to see you at Wythall Facebook on Bank Holiday Monday, at least the rain can’t stop us!”
