New Video includes interview with giant of the bus industry
Our latest film features an interview with someone who, it can truly be said, made a vast difference to the whole bus industry.
Geoffrey G. Hilditch O.B.E. was influential throughout his whole life working with buses.
Leicester Transport Heritage Trust invited Geoffrey to their 4th Annual Heritage Bus Running Day in 2013 to launch their newly restored Dennis Dominator, Leicester No. 50 (TBC 50X).
In an interview with Nick Larkin, Geoffrey tells the story of his life in the bus industry, and his role in the genesis of the Dennis Dominator.
The rally was also important to LTHT, because they had recently signed a lease on the old Stoneygate Tram Depot, which they plan to turn into an educational resource. This was their first opportunity to show their plans for the building to the public, and so a regular bus service, echoing the old route number 29, was run to the tram depot.
With 12 buses running in service to Stoneygate, and to other destinations, such as Quorn railway station, this film captures the mood of the times when Leicester City Transport was the dominant operator in Leicester.
The DVD is available now at £15.99. For more details, and to purchase the DVD, click here.Welcome to our website
