Did you know we have our own permanent collection of vehicles here at GTM. The wide array of exhibits range from our popular Mack Snowplough & Sentinel Steam Waggon to this incredible Land Rover Series 1. 1956 saw the introduction of Land Rover’s first five-door model, on the 107-inch chassis, known as the "Station Wagon" with seating for up to ten people. This one, chassis number 006, is believed to be the oldest surviving 107” Station Wagon and is in remarkably original condition. The Land Rover was subject of a two year conservation programme by the museum’s volunteers, keeping as much of the original vehicle as possible. Their hard work paid off when the museum received a Restoration Award from the Transport Trust.

The North East 250 is the ultimate road trip to the heart of Scotland and we are proud to announce that we are supporting this great new initiative! Just a short drive from the main route we provide the perfect starting point or finishing point. Perhaps, stop in by for coffee or have lunch in our Tea Room. We hope you enjoy the route as much as we do!

Pick up your copy of The BULLetin Magazine for a special update from GTM and some other fantastic local businesses. We are also proud to be featured on the cover!

The response to this event has been amazing. From military enthusiasts, groups, clubs and individual vehicle collectors to the local Air Cadets and Armed Forces. This event is going to be awesome!
