On Wednesday 5 October at Fawley Hill in Buckinghamshire, Daniel Abbot, Chair of the Buffalo LVT Association was presented with the National Transport Trust Preservationist of the Year Award.

The Award

The trust awards its trophy to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the cause of transport heritage preservation in a specific year, or who has culminated in a specific year. The winner holds for a year a silver model of SS Great Britain, since the award was inspired by the achievement of Sir Jack Hayward in returning the vessel from the Falklands to Bristol.

Daniel said “The award was given to me for researching and leading the Buffalo project but I couldn’t have done it without Team Buffalo. I would like to thank the committee and the public for supporting and donating funds to get us to this point.”

National Transport Trust promotes and encourages the preservation and restoration of Britain’s transport heritage in all its forms – road, rail, wings and water.

This is a fabulous award and great news for Daniel and the project.
