Showbus 2021

Sunday saw this year's Showbus event take place at the Hertfordshire County Showground with a number of local operators taking part.

Ipswich Buses provided Volvo B7RLE/ Wright Eclipse Urban 160 SN57 DDF which was previously with Lothian Buses

Next up is Peelings Coaches (Jonathan Joplin's) Jonckheere bodied Volvo B10M-62 X68 CNY, Delivered new to Bebb of Llantwit Fadre in February 2001 it has subsequently seen use with On A Mission Coaches of Soulbury, Buckinghamshire; Herrington Coaches of Fordingbridge, Hampshire and Carrs Coaches of Pluckley, Kent before moving to Norfolk.

The third 'local' representative was Beestons' East Lancs bodied Scania N94UD 526 FN - a plate previously carried by a Caroline Seagull Ford R1114

Ensign of Purfleet entered brand new Wright StreetDeck 171 LX71 AOM - despite the entry list suggesting it would be a StreetLite !

The Happisburgh Touring Society naturally brought along their Gloria, a Van Hool Alizee T8 bodied Volvo B10M YXI 6327, new to Shearing's as F741 ENE

There was also a special display celebrating the centenary of United Counties. The photo shows United Counties Preservation Group's Bedford YRT/ Willowbrook RBD 111M, Martin Robert's Ford R1014/ Duple OVV 59R and Bob Pain's ECW bodied Bristol VRSL3 XNV 882S

My thanks to 'Reg Vardy' for providing the photos
