Hello people!


I am wondering if you guys go to any bus rallies or running days? I go to a few each year, as I'm in the Reading Transport Enthusiast Club.


The Reading Transport Club uses mainly one predominant bus - Routemaster RM 2208 the owner is Treasury of club, and the CEO of Reading Buses (Martjin Gilbert) allows us to take a bus to many rallies around the year and the club get to know about ideas that Reading buses are doing first (which is great, love inside news.)


But carrying on with the topic, How many of you go to bus events, whether they be open days/rallies/running days etc. Also do you go with a bus to the event?


Whiskey.

I have only been to the BUSES festival last year but I am aiming to go to showbus which is just down the road from me this year. I have also been to trentbarton's big 100th birthday party a couple of years ago which was at their main depot.

don't make me even more jealous by saying that your bringing your Routemaster.. :(
No, it's in Wales at the mo, having some new flywheel bearings put on. Not sure when the Routemaster is coming out next? We are taking Reading Buses E400 in retro Reading buses colours.

If you want to go further afield there is the GVVT open weekend and running days in October. 8th and 9th I believe. or there is the SVBM open weekend and running day which is today and tomorrow.

Hopefully I will be going to SVBM or GVVT (I can't remember
) on Routemaster RM2208 later this year. But if I don't go on the bus, the bus will still be going, we travel on the Thursday morning up and come back on Tuesday night.
