The event, based at Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire is scheduled for 25 July, with around 30 operator and enthusiast-owned vehicles running a network of services to and from Peterborough bus station, Ramsey, Turves, Thorney and Yaxley.

“While we emphasise that we will comply fully with any Covid-19 restrictions still in place we hope as many people as possible will able to enjoy the event, and ride on the buses,” said spokesperson for event organisers Eastern Bus Enthusiasts and driver with Delaine Stephen Longmire.

The event was cancelled last year. being replaced later in the year with a road run. This year’s event will include a shuttle to the Fenland Light Railway – but visits must be booked in advance. Buses will also call at various local pubs.
Entries are still welcome.
