The Transport Trust have announced their 2014 Restoration Awards winners. These cover trains, planes, marine craft and vehicles. Amongst the vehicles which won awards were David McManus for his restoration of a 1935 Dennis Big Four fire appliance which had seen service in the WW2 London Blitz. A second Fire Appliance, restored by Tony Marriott was a Leyland Cub originally ordered by Aberdeen Council in 1940. Withdrawn from front line emergency work in 1965 it was manned by pupils from Gordonstoun school as a volunteer unit section of the North East Fife Fire Brigade. A Daimler 2.5 litre Empress, restored by Geoffrey Grayson, was another award winner. Final transport section winner was an AEC Regent double decker bus, restored by Steven Cope. Built in 1938 it was in service with the Devon General. Congratulations to all the winners for such dedicated restoration work.
