The Fleet Review - 25th September 2016
 
On the morning of 25th September 2016 between 8.00 am and 11.00 am, a number of historic Barton Transport vehicles will converge on the Head Office and Works at Chilwell to line up for review. 
  
This will be the grandest reunion of the remaining Barton Transport Fleet since July 1989 when transport operations were sold after over 80 years of Progress, Civility and Service.
 
This event is free to attendees, but please note there is no public car parking being provided though there should be ample car parking available locally. Public transport links to the site by bus (obviously), tram and rail (Beeston Station) are superlative.
 
Pedestrian Visitors
 
Pedestrian visitors are welcome to join us on site to witness the literally moving spectacle, which of course may never be repeated.  They can only gain access to the site from High Road Chilwell in order to observe the participating vehicles.
 
Barton Transport and visiting vehicles will also be visible on the road, often on Holly Lane and on High Road Chilwell - particularly at the Castle College transport stop opposite Barton House.
 
Please note that the vehicles will be being started, manoeuvred and marshalled in a restricted area for participants only. Please respect this limitation enforced for safety reasons.
 
Opening times for pedestrian visitors: Sunday: 8am-11am.
N.B. STRICTLY LAST ENTRY TO CHILWELL SITE at 10.30 am
Free Admission.
Easily accessible from HIGH ROAD CHILWELL.  No available parking for the public.
 
 
Showbus Entered Vehicles and Visiting Coaches
 
Showbus entered vehicles are also very welcome to visit (a strict one way system onto site from Queens Road West, and Barton Way will be enforced for safety and logistic reasons).
 
There are a good number of parking spaces reserved on site for Showbus entered vehicles on a first come first served basis, and visiting coaches and buses of other operators and former operators will of course be very welcome indeed.
 
Opening times for Showbus and visiting vehicles: Sunday: 8am-11am.
N.B. STRICTLY LAST ENTRY TO CHILWELL SITE at 10.30 am
Free Admission.
Vehicle Access ONLY from off QUEENS ROAD WEST and BARTON WAY.
