Stonham Barns ~ Big Bus Show

Stonham Barns, just east of Stowmarket, held its first bus and coach event on Sunday with some 25 vehicles in attendance. LiamS provides information and photos (too many to post !!) but here is a selection.

He was fortunate in travelling to the event in Sanders Coaches' Yutong TC9 number 003 HV20 HRV and was grateful for the air conditioning on such a warm day.

Go East Anglia featured a representative from each of the three subsidiaries operating in the region. Chambers sent along one time Anglianbus Scania K230UB OmniLink AN61 LAN; Hedingham provided ex London Volvo B9/ Wright Eclipse 538 LX59 DDE; whilst Konectbus was represented by Alexander Dennis Enviro400 611 SN62 AVO

Ipswich Buses brought along former Trent Barton Optare Tempo X1200SR 97 YJ12 GWO suitably branded for Route 13 between Copdock and Central Ipswich.

An interesting decker was N827 FKK now with The Bus Shelter of Ipswich. The Volvo Olympian, with an Alexander RH body, was new to Dublin Bus as 95-D-254 and had also seen use with Stephenson's of Essex and Galloways of Mendlesham. Getting in on the picture is Belle Coaches Mercedes-Benz Tourismo BU18 YPG

Another Suffolk operator, Whincop of Peasenhall, displayed both of their Volvo B10BLE Wright Renowns. Here’s T124 OAH, originally with Ambassador Travel and now registered as OJI 742.

Two former London Transport AEC Routemasters also made an appearance in the form of RM1871 ALD 871B (pictured) and RM857 WLT 857

My thanks to Liam for the photos
