Bus Exhibits
Most years see over 60 bus entries to the Festival, in all shapes, sizes and ages varying from museum exhibits and privately-preserved to current service vehicles. We thank the owners, restorers and drivers of all vehicles for making the effort to reach Llandudno and hope that they will come back again in future years. It is a fact that we have limited space and are not able to accommodate all entries, so please book early if you are interested.
Sunday sees the annual Crosville Gathering. Organised by the Crosville Enthusiasts Club, this is one of their principal meetings of the year. Owners of ex-Crosville vehicles met up to enjoy their hobby in company with vehicles running today within the old operating area. Leeds/PMT Leylands, Crosville RE, AEC Reliance The Shuttle Bus Service is an important part of the Transport Festival. Usually the service is provided by classic, rather than vintage buses, but at busy times the service is augmented by volunteer owners and drivers. This provides a link between the Festival Field, Car Park and the Victorian Extravaganza in the town.
On Saturday and Sunday evenings, departing at about 6:00 pm (ground conditions permitting), low-height buses and coaches take part in the Conwy and Marine Drive road runs. This latter road around the lower levels of the Great Orme headland offers magnificent scenery and superb sea views. The photo-stop by the 'Rest and Be Thankful' Cafe, which marks the half-way point and highest part of the route, and there is usually a fine display of vehicles of all types laying-over for refreshments and photography. Absolutely one of the high points of the Festival!
