(Very Good)

Housed in an old power station is the Southern Electric Museum. In the generating hall there is a fully restored Bournemouth tram along with local generating and distribution equipment to help explain how the lights come on in our homes. There are also 19th and 20th century electrical appliances as well as some electricity service vehicles.

ITINERARY NOTES

Bus Ticket
The ticket used on the day of travel was a Getaway.

Operator/Route No./Branding
The trading names of bus operators often change over time. In all instances, we use the trading name in effect at the time of travel. Similarly, route numbers and branding are also subject to change. Again, we use the route number and branding in effect at the time.

Route
When we list a town, city, etc. in FULL CAPITALS, this indicates that the full bus route starts/ends here. If we list a town, city, etc. with only an Initial Capital letter, this indicates that the full bus route starts/ends at some point before/after this.

Departure
The location of the bus stop (departure point) used at the start of the route stage.
