Our Archive

The GVVT archive was established by the late Brian Longworth to look after the many items that were being donated to the Trust. We have a dedicated team of volunteers who are in the process of sorting and cataloging these items.

A recent video showcasing many of the items stored in our archive.

We were able to acquire suitable rolling shelving that allows materials to be stored safely and efficiently.

Some of the items we have been donated over the years include:

  • photographs/negatives/slides
  • timetables/maps/posters
  • books/magazines
  • uniform
  • destination blinds
  • tickets/ticket machines
  • company records

Many items from our archive are displayed in our exhibition hall on our open days.

If you would like to donate an item to our archive please get in touch by emailing us at info@gvvt.org and we’ll pass it on to our archive team to follow up. Please note we are unable to purchase items for the archive. We also do not need any old copies of Buses/Buses Illustrated magazine!
