Its on Sunday

so much to post at the moment yet so little time!

Just a quickie this morning – a reminder of the main event this Sunday on Plymouth Hoe:

Western National Preservation Group 27th Annual Rally

This year, although we are all suffering from the effects of the recession, we are expecting close to 100 exhibits at the Rally.  Enthusiasts will also notice that we are again publishing a Fleet List in the Programme however, for first time, the List will be of our main sponsor  “Target Travel ” vehicles.

Also included in the programme will be a list of all exhibits together with a programme of the attending vehicles providing Free Rides and their departure times.

There will be plenty of stalls selling models, books etc. and our own WNPG stand selling Western National items and much much more.

  • Adjacent to the GWR baggage store was this smaller goods shed, with platform consisting of blue & red brick steps. The exact year when this was built is unclear but is thought to pre-date the larger building Hidden Plymouth NEW BLOG!
  • There is no doubt that public transport information in Aix-les-Bains (France) shows a "panache" that is rarely present in the UK. But the network that is publicised has a very different feel from that back in Glorious Albion Public Transport Experience
  • But, can the local newspaper website really justify the headline, “Anger as Stagecoach crashes into Cheltenham bus shelter”? Or is this just lazy reporting? Just invective? Omnibuses
  • Stagecoach's Portsmouth depot are temporarily losing all/most of it's Enviro300s for the Olympics, meaning a variety of older buses are taking their place on route 23... Southern England Bus Scene
