The Desborough Desire

On Saturday 13th January, 'Bus Running Days' will be working in partnership with The Northampton Transport Heritage Group.

Our aim is to try and raise money to help restore former Northampton Corporation Daimler CVG6 / Roe 197 DNH197.

The day will start with a pick up at 10:00am from outside Leicester railway station and we hope to return by 18:00 approximately.

For a full days travel aboard this running day the fare has been set at an amazing £15 per person which is payable on the day.

In order to do this we have organised a bus running day at Hamilton's Coaches of Desborough (Northamptonshire).

During this running day we will be aiming to use a selection of vehicles from their fleet of buses which are normally restricted to college/school contracts etc.

The current bus fleet contains the following very interesting vehicles:

OJZ7022 Volvo Citybus / Alexander RV (G153TYT) **
XIL4348 Volvo Citybus / Northern Counties (G133PGK) **
B783AOC MCW Metrobus 2 / MCW
F603GVO Volvo Citybus / Alexander RV **
F604GVO Volvo Citybus / Alexander RV **
G623OTV Volvo Citybus / Alexander RV **
K729DAO Volvo B10M / Alexander PS **
R366LGH Volvo Olympian / Northern Counties Palatine 2 **
R369LGH Volvo Olympian / Northern Counties Palatine 2 **
R157VPU Volvo Olympian / Alexander RL **
R331WVR Volvo Olympian / Northern Counties Palatine 2
R334WVR Volvo Olympian / Northern Counties Palatine 2
S772RVU Volvo Olympian / Alexander RL
V425DRC Dennis Trident / East Lancs Lolyne

We hope to use no less than 7 different vehicles from the list above during this running day.

** These vehicles have been requested for use during this running day.

All advertised vehicles are subject to on the day and we hope to see as many of you as possible during this running day.

If you have any questions about this running day, please send them by email to and do not contact Hamilton's Coaches as they will be unable to assist you.
