Ready for Easter!

The Cumbria Classic Coaches fleet is ready and waiting for the Kirkby Stephen & Brough Easter Rally.

They will spend Easter Saturday and Sunday shuttling visitors between the two towns that take part in the busy Easter Rally. Other visiting vehicles join them in providing the free bus service that link the various display sites.
Over 200 exhibits are entered for the 2014 event which also includes a road run on Saturday evening.

This year all entrants will be presented with a Heavy Duty Waterproof Lantern and here we see Claire Hamer stickering the lanterns ready to give out during the two day event. The Eden Classic Vehicle Group always try to come up with a useful gift and this year is obviously no exception.

The event kicks off the new Rally Season in Cumbria and attracts entries from far and wide. All the local shops and restaurants open on both days and local village halls and organisations open up their premises to welcome visitors and provide home made food and snacks. The event is free, just turn up and you will be made welcome. Focus Transport will be there to report on the proceedings.
Already spotted parked at the Cumbria Classic depot at Bowber Head is 1949 Guy Arab CBV 433. This Crossley bodied, Gardener engined vehicle is ex Blackburn Transport and hopefully will be used on the free bus service between Kirkby Stephen and Brough.

If you have an Easter transport event scheduled let us know today via and we will try to give it a mention.
