Today was another first for our new events Committee who arranged the Classic Bus Rally. Eleven classic buses arrived from far away as Barrow and Yorkshire and most took turns in carrying passengers to and from Duffield Station. At one point two were required.
Steam engine 78018 and the green two car DMU were used on the two train service with some loadings being full to capacity
Luckily many of the Classic Buses came loaded with passengers as once again the car park was completely full
The narrow and minature gauge railways ran plus steam on the incline with the catering department running to full capacity. How they ate so many chips in the hot weather I will never know !!.
Financially it exceeded last years takings and I wish to thank all who helped to make it another very successful day
