About the Group

About the Group



The Essex Bus Enthusiasts Group caters for anyone interested in bus and coach operations in Essex and the out-county operations of Essex based firms.  We do not generally cover operators running TfL services in Essex or National Express services.




All members receive a monthly illustrated magazine, Essex Bus Magazine, containing current news and historical features.

Regular meetings are held in Chelmsford where members enjoy slide shows and talks. 

Group publications are available by post.




The Group was originally formed in March 1962 as a local interest section within the M&D and East Kent Bus Club.  The Eastern National Enthusiasts Group (ENEG) came into being in January 1964, publishing its own monthly news-sheet as well as organising meetings and coach tours.


Following deregulation of the bus industry in 1986, the Group changed its name to the current title, to reflect the wider news coverage now offered.  Reflecting the Group’s heritage, this web site uses an approximation of “Tilling” green and cream for its navigation bars.
