The bus and steam rally, which took place at The Helicopter Museum, in Locking, had a selection of old and new Badgerline coaches, plus open top buses, on Sunday.

Visitors were given the opportunity to board the vehicles and look around while also viewing the largest collection of helicopters in the world.

Among the attendees was Mark Withers, who travelled north from his home in Dorset, to showcase his vintage bus which dates back to the 1950s.

Organiser Kevin Almos felt the event went well as people enjoyed looking at the old vehicles.
