June 2007
Once again the Cobham bus rally moved home this year - Longcross test track being chosen to host the event.   It is an enormous site which allowed vehicles to be organised into logical groupings - Routemasters, preserved vehicles, vehicles currently in service and pre-war buses.   The weather was warm and sunny and the rally was well attended.  Highlights included a Highland Albion Lowlander (right), and the first appearance of a London Transport Leyland Cub (middle below) and a Kentish Bus Routemaster (bottom).
