A chance to show off your heritage Plaxton

During 2017, a number of owners of heritage Plaxton coaches expressed an interest for a Plaxton coach gathering.

An event was hosted by Chris Stainton at his premises in Cumbria in November 2017. Not only did this give some unique photo opportunities, but also gave the owners of the coaches the opportunity to swap stories, exchange information about spare parts suppliers, and even buy and sell hard-to-find parts or literature.

Following on from the success of this first event, participants agree that a second event should be planned for 2018, and I stepped up to the challenge.

This year, the meeting will be held at Kirklees Light Railway on Saturday 20 October.

Currently we have confirmed entries from the Panorama, Panorama Elite, Supreme and Paramount series. Owners range from professional coach firms with a heritage vehicle in their fleet, to museums attending with one of their exhibits, to individual professional drivers or enthusiasts.

We have a few more spaces for further entries of Plaxton coaches built in or before 1990. There's no fee to attend or enter a coach, but owners need to book a place with me. For more information, go to or email me at
