Museum of Transport, Greater ManchesterMuseum of Transport, Greater Manchester  


Film and Television


LUT 27 at Greengate, SalfordAs museum pieces, Museum vehicles are not licensed to carry passengers for hire and reward. Sorry!


However we can help for appearance work, especially in film, TV and exhibitions. We have vehicles that are historically accurate from 1890 to 1980 - so if your street scene requires a bus, and it simply must be right, then the Museum can help. Over 60 of the Museum’s collection can be available with sufficient notice - please contact us to discuss your requirements. View full details of our vehicle collection...


Even many of the Museum’s smaller objects can be hired as props - maybe you need to place that street conversation at a 1950s Salford bus stop, or your bus conductor needs a ticket machine? View details of our artefacts...


For all your requirements, please contact us.


Ticket machinePast appearances of our vehicles include: Life on Mars, How we used to live, Prime Suspect, Second Chance, East is East, Sex, Chips & Rock n' Roll, Watching, The New Statesman, A 'pop' video for The Flying Pickets, Whatever happened to Harold Smith, the Reeves & Mortimer comedy 'The Weekenders', The Politics Show and Second Chance with Mike Harding.


Our artefacts have also been used in Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban and have been on display within The Millennium Dome and in various exhibitions at other museums.
