NNR 1940's Weekend

The North Norfolk Railway held its 1940s Weekend during this Saturday and Sunday

As part of the event a free vintage bus service operated between Sheringham and Holt providing a glimpse of some lovely vehicles

Of particular interest was this 1948 built Leyland PS1 Tiger EAV458 with classic Duple bodywork

Originally No 117 with Sutherland of Peterhead, she is shown here at Sheringham earlier today in Northern Scottish livery as NPA197 in the fleet.

Another participant was ex London Country Routemaster RML2419.

The 1966 built JJD419D has a Park Royal 72 seater body and is also pictured at Sheringham.

The vehicle is now owned by the Brandon Bus and Coach Preservation Society

The final picture is of a 1939 Bristol K5G with an Eastern Coachworks lowbridge body.
AJN825 was originally owned by Westcliffe On Sea Motor Services and I sampled a short run on her between Holt NNR Station and Holt village centre.

Despite the Showbus Event at Duxford today there was still a wide variety of vehicles in use on the Sheringham - Holt runs
