Booking it for Airshow weekend probablly wasn't the greatest move ... a bit like last year when the Festival of Transport clashed with the Great North Run.

Its something delivered by the Bishop Auckland Town Team for the local people there, rather than something NEBPT have done off of their own backs. I really don't think they're intending it to be a large scale rally that people from across the region attend.

It will likely be more than 4 but no confirmation on numbers although I've heard in the region of 10 buses might be there.


As part of the 'Buses Thru The Ages' event there will be 2 vintage buses doing FREE tours around the town.

One of the buses will leave the Market Place and go via the Bus Station, along Newgate Street to the Train Station.

The other bus will leave the market place and travel through Cockton Hill - Tindale Crescent - St Helens Auckland and to the old Eden Bus garage in West Auckland.

These FREE tours will run throughout the day (donations can be accepted onboard)
