YELLOWAY MOBILE MUSEUM

Mr Paul Blackburn


 Is the new owner of the Yelloway Mobile Motor Coach Museum reports on Monday 5th March 2012;


“The Yelloway Museum arrived safely at the Bury Transport Museum storage and workshop facility in Bolton where it will remain for some weeks to enable remedial works, maintenance and servicing to be carried out before moving to its future base in the Bury Transport Museum at a date to be announced. It will then also be available to attend a small number of events elsewhere in the North West once again.”

“I am absolutely delighted and privileged, being a Rochdalian, to have been able to help return the magnificent Museum, created by Dave so painstakingly over many years, to its roots. Also, thanks to the Bury Transport Museum Committee and its Chairman Robin Cotton, I am able to ensure its long term accessibility to the public and Yelloway enthusiasts.”
