12/06/12 Event: Royal Bus Rally

A new event for 2012 in the North East of England was the Royal Bus Rally which was held in Tesco Supermarket car park in Bishop Auckland, staged by The Eden. The event took place on the 4th of June 2012 and was deemed to be largely successful with high visitor numbers and a good turnout of vehicles which were all historic unlike other rallies which see a mixture of old and modern vehicles. The most notable vehicle in attendance was of Leyland National YFY 4M owned by Yesterbus which was at its debut event in preservation having been restored over the last few years but was also joined by a recent acquisition from The Eden. This was of Bristol LH / ECW AFB597V which is currently wearing a tired MK Metro livery though plans are in place to repaint it into The Eden’s standard livery.
