For the second week running I was at events on two consecutive days, this time both were bus events, with one at Preston on the Saturday, and this one at Burscough on the Sunday. I'd been wanting to visit the Merseyside Transport Trust's Depot and annual Open Day there for some time now, but due to all the railway electrification work that had been taking place on Sundays over the previous several years this had not been possible before. This time though no such problems, and even better, the Blackburn to Manchester rail service had now been extended to Southport, which meant that I could now get a train direct from Rochdale to Burscough Bridge, where the MTT were running a shuttle service from to the event.

With a great collection of buses awaiting restoration inside their depot, and lots of running ones on display in an area near by, and with regular trips around the area, what was not to like about this event. My thanks to all the staff, drivers and volunteers for making this happen, and I'm sure it won't be too long before I'm back there again.
