The Society was again invited to display vehicles at the Ryhope Pumping Station open day on Sunday, 26th October. Bristol LHS VDL 769G (the "Newtonian") and the Daimler AHN 451B made the trip and such was the interest generated that one of both vehicles was on the road, unloading or loading for most of the afternoon.
During the schools' half-term week, two of the Society's vehicles, and a further two provided by the North-East Bus Preservation Trust, provided both a static display on Grainger Street, Newcastle, and an hourly bus service between the display and the Discovery Museum. This was a great success, more ambitious than the corresponding event last year, and a very satisfying collaboration between the two societies.
The Society has been active at Beamish again over Halloween's special events' evenings. A Society vehicle (Bristol K GHN 189) with crew supplemented the road-based service anti-clockwise round the site.
