Never ask a dustman to talk shop.
He will only talk a load of rubbish!

Right. Now listen here, A lot of bus enthusiasts have gone to a lot of trouble to organise another Peterborough bus rally on Sunday and I'm expecting some of you to make the effort to come along. Firstly it is FREE, even though it costs us money to put on. As always, if you introduce yourself as a ATVBF member you've got free tea, biscuits and cool lemonade all day and a friendly tea tent to sit in. Just go to the crew tent in the middle of the bottom of the field and tell my wife Sue that Chris sent you. Don't come by car, you'll have to pay to park. Get a FREE bus from Peterborough, Queensgate, (courtesy of Grettons Coaches), Wansford station (NVR) or Wansford village (3 great buses an hour, courtesy of attending bus companies).

Also lovely old lorries and fire engines.

And you can meet other forum members and visiting bus owners and drivers face to face in a relaxed atmosphere.

Routemaster and other London bus types are, as usual, being kept separate from the other exhibitors, so don't let your feelings about Routemasters or their owners put you off.

See you on Sunday?

All the details on the website. Have a look at last year's photos, courtesy of Kevin Ruff. Don't stay at home watching crap on the telly.

 I have learnt this evening that NNN7M will not be there tomorrow, happily my RE will still be attending!.
As an entrant, can my Son and his friend avail themselves of the lemonade in the crew tent too?.

Very Best Wishes,
Bob.

A very successful rally with about 30 vehicles attending. Not everyone who had pre-booked were able to turn up, but this was made up by those who turned up 'on the day'. We ended up with 3 RE's 3 RF's. Highlights of the day - Barton Full fronted AEC Regent 851FNN, Bob Tarling's Bristol RE GHB148N, Birmingham City Transport Crossley DD JOJ489, Simon Mobbs Olympian Open-topper R738XRV and so many more.

Number of individual vehicles recorded as travelled on at end of June 2018 : 14,316

Shame I wasn't able to get along.

However, I did get a bit of publicity up on Twitter and on one of the BBC Radio Cambridgeshire that Chris wasn't on.
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
