Preserved Aldershot & District
Buses and Coaches

ADBIG does not actually own any preserved vehicles in its own right, but currently there are eleven preserved Aldershot & District buses that remain in full running order that make up the so called "ADBIG fleet".

The buses below are privately owned by ADBIG Members and all in authentic Aldershot & District livery. Many of these regularly participate in ADBIG organised events

Alder Valley
  • Recently ADBIG's remit has been extended to include A&D's successors, the Thames Valley and Aldershot Omnibus Company Ltd, "Alder Valley", particularly their operations south of the A30 and, to a lesser degree, later Arriva and Stagecoach services operating within the old A&D area.
  • ADBIG members also own at least two preserved Alder Valley vehicles.
