Shed doors left open yesterday so got a quick photo...

Vehicle details are...
BMMO S12, fleet number 3750, reg number NHA750.
New to Swadlincote depot in November 1950, later used at Southgate Street depot, Sandacre Street depot, Rugby depot and Coalville depot.  Withdrawn in August 1966 and used for driver training at Bearwood and Worcester depots.  Passed into preservation in 1970, but sadly neglected from the late 1980s.

No work has been done on the vehicle since it left Kidderminster.  When the New road depot at Kidderminster closed, it moved to Worcester depot, and has been there ever since.

Before storage at Worcester and Kidderminster the vehicles kept at Redditch Garage. For many years in the section of the former Church Road Garage known as the Drill Hall which was originally used as a Drill Hall! Midland Red used as a second entrance into the Garage. When Midland Red put the new inspection pits in 1978 it was used as a store where 3750 was kept. Midland Red West also used the building as a make shift paint shop as a number of the minibuses that had all over adverts were painted in there. On demolition when the land was sold as a car park 3750 moved down to the bus park and was stored outside with the Worcester Bus Groups two vehicles for a time before moving to Kidderminster.

As I remember 3750 moved to Evesham after Redditch, as it was parked there when I first visited the garage c.1995/6.
