The Thames Valley & Great Western Omnibus Trust attracted thousands of residents, enthusiasts and visitors to south Devon for its 12th Kingsbridge Vintage Bus Running Day for 7ft 6in-wide vehicles on 21 September.

They enjoyed rides on 42 buses and coaches dating from the 1930s to the 2000s operating 22 different routes and tours at the event, supported by local operator Tally Ho, which made its local facilities available.
