Don't think it's been confirmed yet. I ain't 100% on this but I've heard it's Saturday September 23rd 2017.

Don't kill me if it's not but it sounds about right.
If you have any interest in taking photos, its not the event for you. It is a decent event though all round, and I may have a look up this year.

It is, if you like taking photos of random's stood in front of buses. Tongue Seriously though, if you are willing to pay the train fares, it is a good day out, doesn't cost too much to do Plusbus meaning you can sample some of the buses in service as well.

Will try and get myself there this time after giving last year a miss which I slightly regretted due to appearances of Olympians running around which probably won't happen this time. Also need loads of photos of Lothian, East Coast Buses and Borders Buses etc. as well.

That's right. I'm there for the weekend.... mainly on the beer.

Annoyingly the tickets are not out yet on VTEC...

I am going to go again so I can have another successful youtube video like last years:

Sadly just looked on National Rail Enquiries website for trains on that date and sadly it appears engineering works are on again with division via Carlisle I imagine (like last year), so sadly it looks like I may be bailing on the idea again due to the increase in travel times and the fact the last train from Edinburgh appears to be at 17:55 meaning I would only have about 5 hours in Edinburgh, which is not really enough for me.

EDIT: I'm definitely not going anymore

Was a hellish event last year, just couldn't move in the depot  especially with it only being 10-4 - don't think I'd go again... long weekend at Showbus this year for me.
