Historical Information

This Routemaster entered service as London Transport RML2530 in 1966 It was refurbished in the 1990s and fitted with a Cummins engine and was latterly a First Group bus at Centrewest.

After withdrawal in 2004 it passed via Ensign to Gillingham Football Club and was converted to a promotional vehicle with a trailer, having conversion work carried out by South East Coachworks.

It was acquired by McCains in 2007 and converted into "The Potato Bus", which travelled extensively around the country promoting McCains and explaining the story of the potato to school children, most of whom did not know that chips were made from potatoes! It is complete with video screens up and down, display cases upstairs and a galley kitchen downstairs.

It was acquired by Rydale Folk Museum at Hutton-le-Hole near Pickering from McCain’s in October 2010. Following an enquiry from Keith Kitching of Scarborough it was acquired by the NEBPT in April 2012
