Below are a few shots of preserved Birmingham City Transport buses including;
JOJ 245 a Leyland Tiger PS2/1 with Weymann B34F bodywork new 08/50 to Birmingham City Transport as 2245.
JOJ 548 a Guy Arab IV with Metro-Cammell H30/24R new 10/50 to Birmingham City Transport as 2548.
JOJ 707 a Daimler CVD6DD with Metro-Cammell H30/24R bodywork new 09/51 to Birmingham City Transport as 2707. I managed a ride on this bus on its first public outing since being acquired by The Museum - it must be nearly 50 years since I last rode on a Daimler engined bus on the farewell day with Gash's Daimlers working their last trips on the Nottingham to Newark express service.

Pleasing to see these two posts of Wythall. Quite a few brought memories - mainly those pre 1960 types. A Gash's Daimler was mentioned in the text. I had the pleasure of riding on one of their Daimlers some while ago at one of the London Transport Societies open days.
