Spring Around the Corner
Spring is just around the corner and Cumbria Classic Coaches are busy preparing for another hectic year. 2012 sees the start of a new Wednesday contract to meet a steam special at Appleby station with one double deck vehicle and two single deckers to take passengers to Ullswater for a cruise on the lake. After the cruise passengers will be returned to Appleby to rejoin their train. This service commences on Wednesday 6th June and runs on certain Wednesdays during the summer.
Wednesday is also the day that Cumbria Classic Coaches run their market day service to Barnard Castle via the picturesque route via Middleton in Teesdale, so on the Wednesdays that the steam special runs they will be using their other double deck vehicle on this service, maybe even boosted by a duplicate vehicle if numbers dictate this.
Wedding and other private hire bookings are flooding in so another busy year for the buses - and the crews!
