I’ve downloaded the poster, Chris. I’ll see where I can publicise the event.
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
There's all 'manor' of stuff on my Twitter A/c.

Over 30 vehicles entered for next month's event. Many more expected as entrants do not have to book in advance and many just turn up on the day. Free bus service from Peterborough, Queensgate bus station, from 10:00, courtesy of Diamond Coaches of Rushden

Shame – but obviously necessary and unavoidable.

Now tweeted from two accounts to spread the word.

Thanks!

Have a good day!

Apparently Doc is no longer involved with buses. Sad times.

EBE Group is picking up some of the work such as Micro Pubs tours and NVR event services etc.

I see you are now a director of Viscount Bus & Coach Co registered office at Thornton le Dale. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10829666/officers but I dont see it listed on the gov.uk web site of PSV operators. It is still listed on there as a trading name for Stagecoach. Can you enlighten us please?

A few years ago The Viscount Bus & Coach Company Ltd., a company owned by Stagecoach Holdings, was struck off the register of limited companies by SH and the Peterborough operations bought under the control of Cambus Ltd.
The PSV Operators license for Peterborough has also been changed to Cambus Ltd, and legal address on the buses changed for a number of years now.

I purchased the rights to the Ltd. Company from Stagecoach, It is currently a dormant Ltd Company until the time i decided to start trading in a Ltd. entitiy.
For now I specialise as a sole trader in Marketing Services and Vehicle sourcing/sales. One day I will use it to operate PSV.

Stagecoach have relinquished all rights.

Some of us can guess what's meant by EBE and NVR, Nathan but full names would add clarity for newcomers (as would embedded hyperlinks).

I assume you mean Eastern Bus Enthusiasts and Nene Valley Railway?

Keep up the good work. I always enjoy the...



...when I can make it over to Whittlesey/Whittlesea.
