Sunday 1 September marked the 10th anniversary of Severn Valley Railway’s ‘On the Buses’ event which is held at Bewdley railway station in Worcestershire.

Wyvern Bus Preservation’s latest addition is former First Optare Solo 53048, which is currently running in as acquired condition. The preservation group were able to display visitor’s names for the small fee of £3. This seemed very popular, but the best name displayed on the destination has to be the one displayed in this image! RICHARD SHARMAN

The event is a major attraction for both enthusiasts and families, as they are able to combine vintage bus and train rides in one day.

The modest admission fee of £2 (free if you are a SVR ticket holder) allows you entry to the site and the opportunity to take as many free bus rides as you can fit in. Two services operated, one around Bewdley town centre and the other to the town of Stourport-on-Severn.

Due to the number of vehicles that wish to attend, a move to Kidderminster railway station maybe on the cards for next year.
