Other attractions include the exhibition hall, films, games and miniature steam trains which carry visitors around the grounds.

The museum is staffed solely by volunteers who are currently reconstructing a 1950s Midland Red Enquiry Office, complete with period advertising.

Malcolm Keeley, the venue''s collections manager and a trustee of the museum, said: "Midland Red carried millions of passengers every week and had enquiry offices in every town and city throughout the Midlands.

"You could book your Midland Red luxury coach cruise and discover the times of local buses throughout the UK – and not a single computer was involved."

The museum, located at Chapel Lane, Wythall, is open from 10.30am to 5pm on both days.
