'Western Volvo' - NNRG Running Day 21st May 2017

8 Replies, 4257 Views

Morning all,

I am creating a reminder for the Northern National Restoration Group's annual running day, which is to be held on Sunday 21st May. The vehicle used will be ex-Go North East Volvo B10BLE/Wright Renown 4855 (R855 PRG). Departure from Chester-le-Street will be at 1100, then a blast along the A1(M) and a pick-up in Newcastle on Bewick Street around 1130. Following this, the route will follow the ex-OK 684 route to Ovington, with photo stops planned along the way, and then we will return to Newcastle where passengers will be dropped off again, as well as Chester-le-Street. Only the one bus is planned to be used this year, so if you are going to attend, can you please vote in the poll I have attached, or comment below. Under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyed the ride today, got some nice pictures and spoke to a few people I haven't seen in a while. Hope everyone else had a good time and the turnout was encouraging enough to warrant another road run in the future. Big Grin

I enjoyed today, I'd definitely go on another NNRG outing. I like the way the group has a strong family ethos.

Like all the previous road runs, this was a good day out and will gladly go along if there's anymore of these trips.

Now time for the standard Jimmi Flickr plug Big Grin

Hello.
Thanks very much for coming on the road run yesterday. Yes we will do this again with another bus perhaps. We are a family orientated group. The Group members always bring there kids with them. These runs were originally only meant for the group to stretch the legs of 4710 but now 4855 is on the road its the first time that we have only used 1 bus for a wile now.

We always try and make the runs interesting. Taking 4710 or 4855 to places that they would not have been wile in GNE service. As for the next one.... Who knows. They might be another run later in the year.
