Weymouth Rally this weekend

This Sunday sees the 4th annual Weymouth bus rally held now in the Weymouth College car park. I must admit Weymouth is one of my favourites. A good variety always turns out, with many not usually seen in this area, a great location with many interesting routes running, and an all round nice atmosphere. There are also some new services for this years rally to experience, now with 6 in total, including a link to the railway station for people arriving by train. 

Of course even the 'standard' bus variety in Weymouth is very good, with the only surviving First Group VR still in service, Leyland Olympians still plentiful including Gardner examples and plenty of Mercedes 709s with local company Sureline. And newly arrived E215 BTA now in the open top formation, now at work on the open top route alongside the VR and Volvo Olympian. 

I'm very much hoping to attend but so far haven't found anyone going locally with WNPG not running up there this year. There must be someone out there though!
