Too Late To Catch The Magic Bus ...

Magic Bus

It is with regret that I can now positively inform you through our contacts in the UK ... that the Magic bus BMMO 4111 is in that great scrap yard in the sky and has been there for a very long time.....

My original posting Spare A Buck ... Save A Bus prompted some questions amongst bus enthusiasts and a couple of Who fans as to the fate of the Magic Bus used on the album cover.

And now you know ....

As a historian (and yes obvious fan of the Who) ... I am upset ....

The other bus 4110 was in Universal Studios LA. It is now abandoned somewhere in the Las Vegas area and is the subject of a possible repatriation effort to the UK, by a Birmingham businessman.

Out of 350 plus examples only two survive complete in the UK ..... one at BAMMOT (Birmingham & Midland Motor Omnibus Trust) the other in private hands.

Obviously this news has greatly intensified the need to rescue RLH3 and preserve her as quickly as possible! And here is why:

Of the RLH (Regent Low Height buses), according to the RLH Information Centre, Thirty-nine have been most likely scrapped or confirmed scrapped and are no longer in any recognizable form.

Thirty-seven "survive"... of which two are listed as "derelict" meaning in scrap yards awaiting final "carving" or in such poor condition they are not restorable.

RLH 76 is in a scrapyard in Uttoxeter, UK (the blue one seen above) and RLH 18 has been left in sad condition in Salt Lake City, Utah.

We hope and are working towards at least one more RLH not being added to this sad list to meet the same fate as The Magic Bus...
our own beloved RLH 3.

I hate to let things get me down ... but I'd be lying at this point if I didn't say I was worried ....The Magic Bus had somehow become symbolic (at least in my mind) to this quest .... Too Late The Magic Bus ....

Spare A Buck .... Save A Bus
