THE Isle of Wight Bus and Coach Museum unveiled a series of rare and preserved coaches on Sunday.

Rare coaches and carriages like the 1880 stagecoach Civility were displayed.

The event also saw horses drawing the carts, and musical acts.

Additionally, the Island’s first ever tourist specific bus is set to make a comeback on its 85th anniversary as it tours its original route across the coast.

The Flying Pig was first unveiled to the public in 1934 and ferried tourists around the major highlights of the Island.

The bus, operated by Southern Vectis, will be following its old route, leaving from Ryde Esplanade at 10am on a two-and-a-half-hour trip to Alum bay.

The service will run tomorrow, July 12.
