Details of ETCS 4th Old Buckenham Bus Rally

Vehicles from the society's own collection will run free services
to and from Attleborough Town Centre.
Daniel Peart of the Eastern Transport Collection has been in touch with all the details from this year's rally which takes place at Old Buckenham Airfield on Sunday 23rd August. Gates open at 10:00am, and the event is expected to last until around 16:00. The rally has grown from strength to strength, with last year's event seeing around twenty five vehicles in attendance.

The event, which is in it's fourth year, will see a variety of vehicles enter both from the society's own collection and from visiting operators, owners and societies.

Once again, a free shuttle service will run from the rally site to Attleborough Town Centre as follows:
  • From Rally site to Queens Square: 1005 and every 20 minutes until 1545, then to town only at 1605 and 1625.
  • From Queens Square to rally site 0955 and every 20 minutes until 1615.
  • All buses will stop by request at the Railway Station in each direction, and although our timetable has made every possible attempt to connect with the train services from Norwich and Ely, as well as Firsts 13B and Konects 6A, we cannot guarantee these connections will be met. Full timetables will be available on the day.
Expected to visit are two of the two heritage liveried buses from First Eastern Counties - from Great Yarmouth and Ipswich. Awayadays AEC Routemaster is expected to pay a visit, and in previous years vehicles have been entered from Fareways, Simonds, Bus and Us and the East Anglia Transport Museum. (All permitting availability.)

The event is free to visit, however, due to limited parking availability a small fee will be charged by the airfield if you wish to park your car at the rally site. If any vehicle owners or operators are interested in obtaining an entry form for the rally, I do have one available on request - so please do get in touch.
