As part of the event, vintage buses were providing free rides around the local area and to and from all NNR stations. Destinations included the Cley Visitors Centre and also the Muckleburgh Collection
My plan was to first take photos of some of the buses at the Station Approach at Sheringham - bad move!! Unknown to me was the fact that the event also coincided with a Morris Dancers attraction too; which meant me being stuck in traffic outside the station for a short while
I decided that, with it being market day as well, car parking would be at premium. So I gave up on that idea and decided to head for Weybourne - if I could get out of the traffic that is!

Former Huddersfield Corporation Transport HVH472D made the long
journey from Yorkshire to be at the event
Next stop was Holt NNR Station where buses and coaches were lined up in a specially reserved area
The vehicle that impressed me most
|Former Yellow Buses Burlingham bodied Leyland Tiger PS2/3 JLJ403|
|Konectbus Leyland National UFX852S still sees occasional use in service|
JLJ403 is a Burlingham bodied Leyland Tiger PS2/3which was formerly operated and preserved by Yellow Buses and formed part of the West of England Transport Collection. It is now privately owned
Leyland National UFX852S also featured at the event. New to Hants & Dorset in the National Bus Company era it is now owned by local operator Konectbus of Dereham and still sees occasional use in service.

on a Fakenham service
Finally, as I was about to leave the event, former Anglianbus Scania OmnCity YN03UVM stopped opposite the Holt Station entrance setting down passengers. Although it still retains its Anglianbus colours, it is now owned by Sanders Coaches of Holt
