You should add alongside their resident fleet, otherwise it sounds like an odd tramway event!

Maybe it would even rival the Festival of Transport's 1 bus in a field event. Big Grin

Really good day - well organised and plenty of variety out on the runs. A bit of a shame they dont have more space for static display as they tend to be crammed in behind each other round the side of the depot but still a thoroughly enjoyable event.

Beamish only wanted pre 1966 vehicles, that fits with the eras that they specialise in.
