A big THANK you to everyone who attended the 2015 Roadrun, the vehicle owners, drivers, platform staff, enthusiasts, members of the public and last but not least, Mary from Cats In Crisis.
Don't forget this coming Sunday is the Thanet Road Run. We have several visiting buses again this year including a couple of open tops, Southern Vectis Iveco 243 and hopefully a surprise vehicle coming all the way from Wales. The action starts at Ramsgate Boating Pool at 10am. Bus riding is encouraged and is free but we will be collecting for Thanet charity Cats In Crisis.
We had a great day out at the Hastings Bus Rally on the 17th of May. One of the Metrocab taxis from the east collection went whilst the west side of our collection was represented by Volvo Olympian M916MKM.
Don't forget this coming Sunday (24th) we shall be at the Deal Classic Car Show with DMS 550, a couple of Metrocabs and out friends at FotEK will be giving free bus rides around the town.
A belated update regarding this event. DMS 550 made her debut here on Sunday 3rd May. Metrocab Series 3 "RLH" was also there as a standby vehicle on the free bus service linking the show site with Sandwich town centre should the need arise for a wheelchair or buggy accessible vehicle. A full report to follow up soon.
Tomorrow we're off to Hastings Bus Rally, again in RLH the Metrocab. Come over and say hello if you are there!
Some great news concerning the Thanet Vintage Bus Roadrun is that Robin's former Southern Vectis Iveco 243 will be hopefully attending. This will be a fairly rare chance to ride on this bus which normally lives on the Isle of Wight. Don't forget that the Road Run is on Sunday 31st and is starting at 10am at Ramsgate Boating Pool.
Here you will find out the latest news about our buses and future events we hope to attend. In addition we will add any interesting bus and coach related news we come across.
