Ensignbus Running Day 2012 - photo special!

Saturday 1st December 2012 saw the popular Ensignbus Running Day take place in Essex, our regular correspondant David Bell visited the event and kindly sent us the splendid selection of photographs used in this post.

David said: " Highlight of the day was the appearence of the Leyland Cub although we had to wait until ten to three before it showed up. The other vehicle of particular interest was RTL 1014 which operated for Unitrans in Davis California before being repatriated."
