Vehicles included former London/Reading Mainline AEC Routemaster ALD990B, owned by Shaun Bradbury, and new to Reading Buses MCW Metrobus WRD162T, the owner being Richard Rampton. There was also a cine film show of Reading trolleybuses by local transport historian Dave Hall.

Robert Williams said: “The main focus is of course our line-up of multi-coloured modern day buses, and our charity of the year Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens, but we also invite a small number of preserved Reading Buses to join us each year as a contrast to our modern fleet, and to allow parents and grandparents to reminisce about the types of buses that they might have used as a child. It all adds to the atmosphere of a lovely family day.”
