The preservation pages provide lists of many of the AEC buses in preservation.
The information is collated directly from the owners or other interested parties, from reports in "Buses" and PSV Circle newsletters and from Internet searches of vehicles I have photographed myself.
Pictures of sister vehicles in service with AERE can be found at Steve Annell's Fotopic site, Barton AEC Reliance 1146 (DAL 771J), with Plaxton Panorama Elite Express body (the version with bus doors for stage carriage duties) is preserved and attendsa many rallies in the Midlands.
A photo of it at the Great Orme Road Run in April 2009 can be found at former Barton Reliance, Plaxton bodied 765 (URR 865), is now appropriately with Bartons plc, a heritage organisation that preserved the memory of Barton and the Beeston district of Nottingham. Former Barton AEC Regent V 851 FNN, with Northern Counties full-fronted body, formerly in the Quantock Motor Services heritage fleet, has been sold to a new owner in the Midlands.
It is preserved by a private owner in Devon, and was seen arriving at the Torquay Vintage Bus Running Day site in September 2011.
