The Newcastle one is excellent - I did it last year.  It uses the Aycliffe red Bristol L and had live narration with someone from Newcastle Council who clearly knew their stuff.  The Sunderland one uses one of the NEBPT vehicles but is a full day and I've never sampled that one.

NNRG are planning a road run from Chester LE Street to Bishop Auckland to commemorate the closing of the Crook outstation. This will leave Chester LE Street front street at 2.00 on the 22nd of September. As will every run no unaccompanied under 16's please.

This will be a simple out and back trip using one of the NNRG's Volvo B10BLE's. Photo stops at Spennymoor on the way out and Chester LE Street Burns on return.

We will leave at 2.00 prompt and to be back around 4.30-5.00.

Anyone who is wanting to come along with us please email me at nnrg@btinternet.com

The NNRG will not be bringing 5217 or any other bus. We might be turning up for a run out tho.

If I had a pound for every time I've heard a TransPennine service has been cancelled in the last month or so, I would have enough to go away somewhere for the night, maybe two at a push. Being kept awake at night wondering when I will receive my Delay Repay claims.

Details of this year's rallies have gone up on the NEBPT website.  Looks like the NE Festival of Transport at Seaburn is defunct, though the Sunderland and District Classic Vehicle Society and NNRG are running a similarly named event in Durham County Hall car park.

There's been an annual classic vehicle rally at County Hall for a while, so it will be interesting to see if they've expanded the scope (we live a 10 minute walk away)

I think it probably fair to say the chances of any events happening this year are now very slim. Think it will be next summer at the earliest now.
