Kingsbridge 2011

If I could only get to one event in a year then the Kingsbridge Running Day would have to be my choice. Well its this Saturday 17th September and full details along with a list of buses expected can be found on the website . I for one should be there so if you see a guy in all black, with a black shoulder bag with CAT logo please say hello!
general view
One of the expected buses is 270KTA which gives me another excuse to highlight the excellent 270KTA blog which follows the trials of owning such a fine old bus and the work (and money) which goes into the long term project. Read the blog today and ride the bus on Saturday!
Western National 420 270KTA

If you cant make it then maybe try for a ride on the last day in regular service for the Plymouth Citybus step entrance Darts on the 59 service. After Saturday there will be just 3 left for schools service and two of these will be replaced as the remaining ex London PVLs enter service in the coming month or so.
