A pleasant sight to see from the old Telegraph Office balcony, was this 1950 "WESTERN NATIONAL" Bristol KS5G, that was a long way from its place of origin, down in the West Country. Just about visible on its open rear platform there is conductor "JIM BAILEY", who along with his lovely wife Maurine, are both regulars every year when it comes to conducting on the Free Heritage Bus Service!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And long may they both continue to do so, I say!)

The buses carried about 40 passengers per trip over the 2 days. The majority visited the Electric Train Museum. With the closure we will need to see whether the buses are worth running next year
