The day before Showbus is often characterised by lovely weather. The team were
getting a bit sunburnt stuffing the "goody bags" and storing them in Motts'
support coach kindly loaned for the weekend. Every entrant recives a drink and
a bar of chocolate along with welcome information. Apologies to those last entries
who missed out as some bags were pinched at Parking Reception by folk who should know better.
The old Motts Jonckheere bodied B10M had been rescued from withdrawn state to be
available for the weekend.
On the Sunday the EFE tent was heaving with enthusuiasts and model collectors.
The occasional shower providing the ideal excuse to visit the displays.
One display attracting a lot of interest was news of the next model, following
on the heels of the Olympian released in its first guise in Southern Vectis
colours at EFE SHOWBUS. The new model is the London Transport AEC Regal 10T10.
