BMMO built buses: 1923–1981

Sunday 28th February 2021 is another sad 40-year anniversary in the history of Midland Red, marking the last of their home-made “BMMO” buses operated in service with the company that designed and built them. The photograph shows Rugby depot's BMMO S23 fleet number 5930 (the last BMMO built bus to be used in service) operating Service 571 towards Leamington Spa. It was taken at the bus shelter on Main Street in Birdingbury (south west of Rugby) on the day of withdrawal, Saturday 28th February 1981, by R Powell Hendry, and was supplied to this website by The Transport Museum, Wythall. Location details provided by Peter Lockley.
