On Sunday 7th April the Bachmann Roadshow team will be heading to the London Bus Museum at Brooklands for the Spring Gathering and Classic Bus Show. Here, Exclusive First Editions (E.F.E.) will be announcing their next all-new 1:76 scale bus and we’re giving members of the Bachmann Collectors Club the chance to ride the real bus to and from the event – for FREE!

Our journey will depart Lakeside Thurrock at 08:00, from Bay E, picking up at Dartford Station (departs 08:30) and arriving at Brooklands around 1000. The return journey will depart Brooklands at 1500, arriving back at Dartford station around 16:30 and at Lakeside Thurrock at 17:00. Event entry tickets must be purchased separately and can be done so in advance online (Book Here) or upon arrival at Brooklands on the day.

The Brooklands Museum is located on part of the historic Brooklands racing circuit and Vickers Aircraft factory and is regarded by many as the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation. Entry to the event includes access to a multitude of attractions across the Brooklands site including displays of historic cars, motorbikes, bicycles and aircraft.

Each passenger for this unique trip will receive a goody bag including several items, one of which will be a special EFE model which cannot be bought in the shops!
