Rally at NNR - 30 June 2018
« on: July 02, 2018, 07:41:15 PM »
Took a trip to Holt on Saturday 30 June 2018 to see the 'Vintage Bus Rally' staged at the North Norfolk Railway. Some of the vehicles ran a service from Holt to Sheringham and from Holt Station to the town centre.

The event was advertised for the Saturday and the next day there was a 'Vintage Transport Festival' advertised. (On Saturday there were three Austin trucks parked in readiness for the Sunday).

On the whole I found this Saturday rally somewhat disappointing with only seven vehicles involved based on my sightings.

Did anyone else attend on either day and see more than I did? Were there more buses and coaches on the Sunday I wonder??

I was there sunday with Dans Coach Travel, there was around 10-15 buses and coaches there with around 300 classic cars at holt, (according to one of the organisers at the gates) At Weybourne there was around 10 Morris Minor 1000's. There were also a Cromer circular route from Sheringham.

Hope this helps David,
