08/05/11 Event: Metrocentre 2011

The 1st of May 2011 was the date of the largest North East Bus Rally, held at Metrocente Coach Park. Good weather throughout the day meant attendance was high for both buses and visitors, with good loadings on journeys throughout the day. As per usual each journey took a different route which gives a lot more variation for visitors who are travelling throughout the day than other events. Most North East bus companies attended apart from Arriva and Stagecoach (who never attend rallies!) with Go North East providing a variety with the highlights being brand new Volvo B9TL / Wright Gemini 6003 NK11 BHD and Plaxton President 9134 V334 LGC which then departed for refurbishment. Also with a high number of vehicles were Howard Snaith who brought an Enviro 200, a Plaxton Cheetah, 3 Volvo B9R / Plaxton Elites and the final Volvo B7R / Plaxton Profile ever to be built. Below are some photos from the day:
