|The timetable for the new extended free bus services|
It's the Eastern Transport Collection Old Buckenham Bus Rally this Sunday, and I have been once again contacted by the society with some more details.
A free bus will operate to and from Norwich to the event as follows. The service will depart Hellesdon Firs Bus Stop at 09:10 and Castle Meadow Stand CS at 09:22 (Calling at all stops in between via Cromer Road, Aylsham Road, Magdalen Street and Tombland). Then via Newmarket Road and A11 to Attleborough Queen's Square at 09:55 and Attleborough Rail Station at 09:57, arriving at 10:10 at the rally. The service will depart the rally at 16:25 for Norwich and Hellesdon and as it stands is booked to be operated by a Routemaster. Please pass on any details to anybody who may be interested in using the service.
As for entries, there are over twenty booked in and on the entry list, with many more known to be turning up on the day. Even more are expected, and as it is currently look could be nearing thirty. Included on the entry list is a tri-axle former China Motor Bus Dennis Condor, heritage vehicles from First Eastern Counties and the usual crop of locally owned preserved buses.
