Boxing Day Buses
We'll be back again on Boxing Day 2014 with our free Boxing Day heritage bus services, weather permitting. Our volunteers operate on a day when no ordinary bus or rail services are available.
We plan to run an hourly 47 service from Workington bus station to Seaton (from 9.20am to 5.20pm), linking to an hourly 46 service to Moorclose and Harrington (from 9.45am to 4.45pm).
New this year is an hourly 30 service from Ewanrigg & Maryport (from 9.25am to 5.25pm) through Workington (from 8.45am to 5.45pm) to Whitehaven & West Cumberland Hospital.
Return trips leave the hospital from 8.25 to 5.25 (to Workington only), and from Workington from 9am to 5pm.
Our thanks to Stagecoach, Cumbria Community Foundation, Cumberland Building Society, Cumbria County Council and local parish and town councils for their ongoing support for this community service.
We aim to open a museum, in the next few years, to house our vehicles and artefacts plus several privately owned buses and make them more accessible to the public.
Our vehicles include a number of buses, fire engines and other vehicles some of which
are used in community events. Volunteers are engaged in restoring, maintaining and
operating these historic vehicles. The Trust has a shop & mini-
We have established an events programme making our activities self funding whilst building up a financial reserve for the future. Our aim is to build up a visitor attraction in Workington helping to promote more employment, training and volunteering opportunities.
