Should be a good'un! I will be there. I believe that it was moved from it's traditional July date in order not to clash with a bus rally in Peterborough?

There's probably going to be no new launch this year, as work on Dart 62 has been stopped due to lack of money, and Lowestoft 8 is slowly being restored. They may possibly do an introduction for Bristol RE VHK177L, although it may have been there last year.

It was there last year but not in the ownership of EATM...

Suppose I better raise awareness of this event now!  :D :D

I wonder if Norfolk Green will send a Spectra down this time. I think last year they were going to do so but instead sent an Agoraline down.

I intend if possible to try get a ride on a Series 3 Bristol VR as it has been nearly a decade since I had a journey on one of them, depending if there is one on the services and the shifts that I cover inside the museum.

All in all it should be an amazing event, hopefully this time passing without incidents requiring the emergency services to be called out...

All of the usual EATM vehicles, RE864, FAH275Y, Anglian J127LHC + a new one (I think), NG Spectra, usually something from FEC, ITM, ETC etc. off the top of my head

Nice video there, Nigel - I had the pleasure of a journey on RLE864 as part of the Norfolk Green / FEC King's Lynn farewell event.

Thanks Derrick, managed half a trip on 864 that day but couldn't resist catching it back to Norwich.

Another video, this time of Lodekka GNG 125C sounding rather nice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwATS4iXj7w

First time I have been to the EATM for at least ten years. Lots of changes since then and have to say I had an enjoyable day. It was also nice to see so many youngsters working with the running of the day event. We need to bring in young blood to help keep these museums going in years to come.

Great day yesterday  -  RE896 went like a dream. It was great to look in Anglian's depot again - I did this previously in 2009, and so much has changed.  It was particularly good to finally get pics of the ex Dubln Volvo Olympian's - hadn't even seen them before yesterday.   It was really good to see the Ipswich Corporation Leyland Atlantean MRT 6P out on the road- was this its first season out ?  I'd seen it before, but only when displayed in the ITM.   Vic Carters 314PFM looked really smart - I hadn't seen this before, so again I am wondering if this was its first outing ?  Had a great trip to Gunton on RLE864  - last time I saw this, it was owned by a guy from Birmingham , when it was painted in a cream and maroon livery I think.  Great to see it in NBC livery :)   Shame there wasn't a chance to line this up with RE896, but never mind.
