Enterprise Steam Bus

D’you get a kick out of vintage cars and old photos of London? Who are you kidding, of course you do! Well retro lovers, you’re in luck, for today at 11.30am the London Transport Museum is bringing a replica of London’s first mechanically propelled bus to Covent Garden Piazza.

Accompanied by a LTM spokesperson who’ll be on hand to answer any questions about the pioneering vehicle, a lady in victorian dress will also be available for photographs with the antique bus. Seeing as 2014 is the Year of The Bus, the Enterprise is set to go on display at this weekend’s open weekend at Acton Depot. The event will feature guest lectures, film screenings, heritage bus rides and access to over 400,000 artefacts and vehicles the depot currently houses. If buses get you buzzed you’d be a fool not to attend.
