Holding on to the Past for Future Generations
We currently are restoring 1998 Dennis Dart SLF. That operated with Rossendale travel from new until the day they scrapped it. Somehow it was saved from the scrap yard and in 2013 ended up on an airfield as a shuttle without a V5C. Around 2020 it was seen on Facebook for sale and Mancbuses with help of the members bought the vehicle for £800 as the last ever SLF Dart that exists from Rossendale Travel. Once bought we began convincing the DVLA that the vehicle was not scrapped and did exist. In 2022 the vehicle went for an MOT which it passed with flying colours for a vehicle of its age.

Serving the community
We love to help and serve different communities if able. We are always happy to provide our services to events whether this is mechanical or a Free Bus Service. We have a brilliant community on our discord chat where you can speak to others and a member of the team.
We create video content to help educate others on the cost and bus preservation as a whole. We would love to expand this into showing and explaining the history etc to schools and allowing youngsters to see and ask questions that they wouldn’t normally get to see. Please help the project by making a donation to help the Dennis Dart return to a fully serviceable condiction.
