NNR Vintage Bus Weekend 2013 photo special

Last weekend saw the North Norfolk Railway host their annual vintage bus weekend, this year the buses on display and in use on the various free bus services to destinations including Holt, Cromer, Sheringham, Weybourne, The Muckleburgh Collection and Cley were based at Holt station.

Highlights over the enjoyable weekend included three of Julian Patterson's excellent Bristol REs - WNG 864H, EPW 516K and RAH 681F, the Konectbus Leyland National UFX 852S as well as vehicles from the East Anglia Transport Museum, Eastern Transport Collection and various other private owners.

One of our regular correspondants Colin Apps was at the event and has kindly supplied the lovely selection of photographs used in this post...
