The Bluebell Railway

Sussex Bus and Coach Day

was on Sunday 3rd July 2005 at Sheffield Park Station, East Sussex

line-up of single deckers


This event is organised by the Bluebell Railway under its special events programme. It is not a rally but a gathering of buses and coaches through the ages together with side stalls and exhibits. We welcomed vintage vehicles especially those that originated in and around Sussex.

We also welcomed vehicles which are in regular service today.
