Out & about in Bury St Edmunds - Christmas Market weekend 2012

Last weekend saw the annual Bury St Edmunds Christmas Market take place, our regular correspondant David Bell visited the event on Saturday and has kindly sent us an interesting selection of bus and coach photographs.

David said: "As an event it is getting bigger every year and attracted a sizeable number of coaches. Mulleys were operating two park and ride shuttles with a selection of vehicles though perhaps the biggest surprise was the appearence of Stephensons 505 Scania/East Lancs on the X14 service to Ipswich - apparently this has been appearing regularly on this service recently due to the normal coach being incapacitated.

Candidate for the furthest travelled coach probably goes to Phillips of Bewdley in Worcestershire with their splendid Plaxton Elite AC12PHL.
