Kingsbridge Running Day 20th September

I have taken this as a direct copy from Terry Partridges TGProjects blog - although I am sure he wont mind!

Some 20 vintage buses ranging from a traditional pre-war single decker to a 1980s minibus will operate services on routes radiating from the Bus Station to coastal villages on both sides of the Kingsbridge Estuary (Bantham, Thurlestone, Hope, South Pool, East Portlemouth and Salcombe) and to Slapton, Beesands, Loddiswell and East Allington. Travel on the old buses will be free.

The history of the routes and of local bus proprietors who set up, sometimes in competition with the GWR, will be described in an illustrated souvenir programme, which will be on sale in the Bus Station for £4. The programme will also contain detailed timetables for all the services, descriptions of all the buses expected to attend and the duties to be carried out by each vehicle during the day

Western National 1202 336EDV
