Go-Ahead London, Stockwell Garage Open Day - 11th June 2022

Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the opening of the garage by London Transport in 1952, Stockwell garage is notable for the architecture of the building which features huge concrete beams that support the roof, giving a totally open area inside devoid of any roof supports. Both heritage and modern buses took part and buses ran on several routes from the garage.

London Bus Route 81 Running Day - 12th June 2022

Today the 81 runs from Hounslow to Slough which is outside the TfL area. At one time the route ran out to Windsor which was the terminus for the running day. Both heritage and modern buses took part in the event which was organised by the London Bus Museum at Brooklands.

Elstree & Borehamwood Classic Bus Running Day - 19th June 2022

An event to celebrate the centenary of bus services in Elstree and Borehamwood organised by the Amersham & District Motorbus Society. Centred at Allum Manor in Borehamwood, routes were operated to New Barnet, Edgware, Watford St. Albans etc. with mostly former London Transport buses.

'Lowish Floor' Running Day, Godstone - 10th July 2022
This event featured buses from the 1970s to the 2000s and included some of the earliest low floor buses built for use in the UK which are now in preservation. The organisers made the point that there were no Routemasters, RT's etc. which was certainly different from many events that take place. Instead the theme was more recent types of bus that are now in preservation. Two routes were operated from Godstone in Surrey to East Grinstead via Lingfield, with a variety of different buses from several operators.

Subtitles, no commentary, enjoy the sights and sounds of buses of yesterday and today.
