Sunday 15th of September saw me on my way over to Great Harwood for the 'Town & District Transport Trust's' 2nd Bus Rally & Running Day. I had enjoyed their inaugural event a year ago and was looking forward to the next one, and I wasn't disappointed. As well as a good selection of buses on display in both the depot and at the display area, there were also regular services to Whalley and Accrington, and also several mystery tours which were very enjoyable and took me to a few places I'd never seen before, and also to one that I had - the old Transdev Manor Sutton Bus Depot - I'd been there on its final day back in August 2011 when they held an Open Day to commemorate the closure, you can find pictures from this event HERE: The event was dedicated to the memory of Iain Bonner, who was one of the founder members of the TDDT.

Another very enjoyable day out and I hope there is a third one next year. My thanks to all the organisers, volunteers and bus owners for making it all happen, their efforts were greatly appreciated.

I bumped into my good friend the legendary Mr Mollsmyre, and we had fun travelling on two of the Mystery Tours, and you might like to check out his excellent video of the event, which you can find at the following link:
