The Provincial Video - Two

Welcome to the second Provincial video where we turn back the clock and profile earlier Provincial vehicles.

The first highlight is a journey on board preserved A.E.C. Regal, No.24 (CG 9607) on it’s way to the Showbus 2004 rally.  Enjoy the splendour of some excellent driving through scenic country roads following fleetmate –  No.35 (BOR 767).  The return journey is on board No.35 which is a pre-war  A.E.C. Regent 1 that carries it’s original Park Royal body containing period features such as a clock and passenger notices from a bygone era.  We then look back at No.35 shortly after restoration on cine film shot some 30 years ago!

We then move onto the Provincial Society’s annual bus rally at Stokes Bay, Gosport.  This provides an insight into the activities at one of the south's larger bus rallies.  During the rally we sample the ‘road run’ and also take a ride on board preserved Provincial Bristol RE No.12 (ECG 112K) as it runs around it’s old haunts on a trip to Gosport bus station before returning to the rally site.

In an independent transport videos exclusive we take a visit to the Provincial Society’s successful ‘All aboard for Provvie’s Past’ exhibition that was held in Fareham. Here you can see the lesser seen parts of the Company’s past, focusing upon everything from trams to tickets!

Finally we round off with a trip on board  Provincial  Guy Arab 1  No.55 (EHO 228) around Fareham in connection with the exhibition.  At the end of it’s journey we see 55 being parked up in her home depot of Hoeford, capturing her in classic surroundings.

So its ‘All aboard for Provvie’s Past’ – on video!  Enjoy the ride!
