I went to the event today, the bus running day. Starting with the negative, it wasn't as good as previous years' which all had a theme and more visiting vehicles and what I particularly liked, a programme/brochure for £2 which was like a small book. Today I asked for a programme and all I got for £1.50 was an A4 timetable sheet (though it was reduced when bought with a guidebook, said guidebook is good). I would like to see a return of the event brochure for another year.
There were problems with the timetable due to really bad roadworks round Victoria - everyone did very well to cope with that, it must have been frustrating for the drivers. Maybe another year allow a bit longer in the timetable for the journey if these roadworks keep going on.
On to the positive, the variety of buses was good and as always they were very well presented. The museum staff are fantastic, really friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming, a real credit. £4 admission is very reasonable, you get a lot for it, the thing I like about the museum is you see something different every time. The exhibits in the museum are really well presented and cover so much history. The route today up to Heaton Park was also good and allowed the opportunity to ride on many different buses from the old North Western Bristol to the 1970s example.
