BUS RALLIES IN 2013 WITH 524 AND/OR 9
September 22nd 2013
See 524 and 9 at Showbus, this year at Long Marston near Stratford on Avon. Much more convenient that Duxford for us being Midlands based. We should also see a number of vehicles from ‘up north’ that find it impossible to get to Duxford. As ever, a great entry list with 150 years of Metro-Cammell being celebrated. 524 was built at MCW at Elmdon in Birmingham from the last set of frames out of the Addlestone works of Weymann so will take a special slot in the MCW display. Lots to see, lots of trade stalls and easy to get to. See you there!
