Holding on to the Past for Future Generations





About us

We currently are restoring a 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.
