24th Annual Quainton Bus Rally - Brian Amman

The Rally was held on the Spring Bank Holiday, Monday 26th May 2008, in conjunction with Three Counties Bus and Commercial Vehicle Museum.

The rally was well supported by the Preserved Bus & Coach community, including the local preservation group (Three Counties Bus & Commercial Vehicle Museum), despite the appalling weather.

A total of 16 Buses / Coaches were present, aged from 1950 to the present day, including an Open Top Bus in the "Wycombe Wanders Football Club" Livery, complete with flags.

Awards were given by the Three Counties Bus & Commercial Vehicle Museum and the BRC to the "Best Presented" Bus / Coach on site, where possible taking into account the work involved in restoring these vehicles. This year it was given to OVL 473, a Bristol Lodeker of 1960, built for Lincolnshire Road Car Services, seen in their livery of Tilling Green and Cream, owned by Mr Rolley of Aylesbury.

The event is always enjoyed by the Preserved Bus & Coach community, as it gives them the chance to show their work, meet without the event being too formal, and enjoy the facilities provided by the Railway Centre.
