New date for your diaries! (Was June 24 but now July 22).
We can now announce that Basildon Bus Rally has changed its name to Essex Bus Rally.........we've also moved the date of the rally to 22nd July.
The dat...e change moves us away from the clash with the London Bus Musuem and in turn has allowed us to collaborate with the Londoner to create two events in one.
Vehicle owners and stall holders will be updated in due course.....
Our February magazine is out and should be with members today or tomorrow. The cover features William Morrison's lucky shot of First 37895 in Chelmsford, one of the coach seated double deckers previously used on the Green Line 702 from London to Windsor. It is thought that this and sister 37986 may have been transferred to Essex for use on the X30 - we await more details!
Meanwhile, out of our area, the 702 was taken over by Reading Buses at Christmas and currently uses an interesting mixture of vehicles, well worth a look if you are in London.
As ever, our magazine is on sale at the Ian Allan shop at Waterloo for non-members.
