2014 was the year of the bus and the London Transport authority commissioned a number of artists to create street art depicting aspects of London life on models of buses. These were then displayed across central London.

Here are some that I managed to find:

There were a group on Transport themes.

Over the weekend I went to the vintage transport festival at Horsted Keynes on the Bluebell Railway. There seemed to be a lot of cars from the 1950 and 60s. Now maybe its because I was born in the 1950s but I am loathed to regard these as vintage, classic maybe, 50 years old definitely but surely not vintage. Anyway here are some pictures of my highlights
