Where we've been

Self Preservation Society

Bushy Park, Hampton Court
Golden Jubilee Celebrations

25.6.02

We were privileged to be invited to display vehicles as part of the Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations, and it was this that finally spurred me into carrying out a full repaint of RT1784.

Bushy Park
RT1784 and RF433 take part in a 1950s scene. The RT is "passing by" and calling at a bus stop whilst RF433 was "parked up" as if it had brought a party to the depicted garden party.

The Queen
The Queen pauses to chat with event participants, not put off by the security railings that the visiting children opposite haven't had to suffer! OK, I'll be honest, I don't think she even noticed the buses but Prince Philip did stop and ask about them.
