   Another Washout at Showbus
It was very wet for the largest bus rally of the year (clockwise): not many souls braved the rain; those who did needed stout umbrellas; a better idea was to view the planes in the museum instead such as this magnificent Sunderland ; many entrants made a hasty exit; Stagecoach had the largest display including this line-up of Enviro 400s.

There was a large turnout of perserved vehicles (clockwise): The undoubted star was the Standerwick Bristol VRL coach; a more vehicle from the more recent past was a Northumbria Delta; a most unusual left hand drive AEC from Lisbon; a beautifully restored Daimler Fleetline from Darlington; as usual there was a large contingent of former London vehicles including this predictable line-up of Routemasters.

Two London Transport stalwarts from the 1980s - a Metrobus and a Titan (top) with two NBC 80's Bristol VRs (below) from Eastern National and Western National.
Unlike 1980's events there were only a handful of new vehicles such as an Enviro 400 from local operator Hedingham and a Sunsundegui Sideral bodied Volvo B7R coach of Johnson Bros.
