Originally planned to mark the closure of Exeter Bus & Coach Station for redevelopment, the Exeter Running Day organised by DGOT on Sunday 19th March 2017 went ahead despite postponement of the closure, as a memorial to our founding trustee Philip Platt, who passed away in December 2016.

Some 24 vehicles took part in the day, including VDV 817 and CTT 513C that now form part of the DGOT collection.
