There's never normally many vehicles there, and its largely weather dependent. 

But at least its a decent place to go to for a couple of hours and you're not fixed to attending the rally.

Yea. Whitly Bay should be back in the car park but it will get a few attendees. It has over the years apart from 2017..Jesus was that a terrible event. But they are restricted on where they can park as I got told they can't have many buses on the grass as the council have told them no

No, the rally will happen regardless. I mean that turnout has been largely subject to weather in previous years.

Update on the Website


This event will take place on The Links opposite Bournemouth Gardens car park.

It will feature a selection of classic buses on display, trade stands and a free bus service around the local area.

The free bus service which is provided thanks to our partners Go North East, will head south along the seafront to Tynemouth before returning to the rally site along the seafront.

To travel to the event by public transport catch Go North East services 1/1A or 309 which stop next to the site.


Looks like no Stephen Railway museum trip this year

The FPF will be happy with that! 
Have they said what will be operating it?
'Illegitimis non carborundum'
No. But I think this is if you want to see a convoy of buses going to a rally. Think it probably shows maybe Nebpt will have more buses attending

Let's just hope the weather does take a salty downturn over the next few days.
Durham was meant to be terrible for weather. It what. Rained from 8 to 9 and was really sunny after that
Looks like no entires are going up on the website.

Surprised that no entires appeared on the Durham rally page. Looks like it's just a see what turns up

Just a query, the Express link Olympian had the high back seats done in what appeared to be the new red GNe moquette. This vehicle never had the high back seats, have these been sourced from another vehicle ? Have to say its immaculately turned out [Image: a3d68b01f7f2fe654fbe80611f7dd584.jpg]
