End of an Era - Bus Running Day20 February
Our first bus event of 2022!
Our first bus event of 2022, sees the "end of an era" - our tribute to the passing of crew operation and the iconic Gibson ticket machine. We commemorate the last commercial use of the Gibson machine - possibly anywhere in the world.
The event will feature vehicles operating additional routes through the glorious Essex countryside. Further vehicles will be on display at North Weald station.
