In May 2006, The Museum of Transport held a weekend-long celebration to mark 100 years since the founding of Lancashire United Transport. Lancashire United, or LUT as it was often known, once the UK’s biggest independent bus company until its sale to GMT in 1976.
LUT's 400 buses and coaches were once a familiar sight in an area stretching from Manchester to Liverpool, and Wigan to Warrington.
Following the sale to GMT the company’s red livery and the red rose emblem that had adorned the company’s vehicles for so many years, disappeared quickly.
Fortunately, a number of LUT buses still survive and many were brought together at the Museum of Transport for a unique weekend-long celebration.
This video - available in two versions on the same DVD, with and without narration - tells the story of the event and the hard work behind the scenes that went into a memorable occasion.
