All operations are subject to the availability of vehicles and volunteer bus crews. For further details please check on this website nearer the date of the event.

If you live locally in Brighton, Lewes or Chailey, why bother with the expense of bringing your car to the Railway when you can travel free by vintage bus, and have a day out with a difference?
