Open Top Buses

Yesterday, May 1st, there was an Open Top Running Day. Eleven old open top buses were on display between 10:30 and 11 at Quaywest in Paignton. After that they all set off on journeys round the Bay, giving free rides to all and sundry. The star of the show for me was a 1934 AEG, reg OD 7497. This bus is so old that in 23 years it will be due a telegram from Buckingham Palace and I hope it is still around to get one, even if it is from Charles III.

Doesn't look all that easy to drive, I have to say.

Many of the other buses can be seen here on my Flickr page,
