Event: 27 & 28 August 2016 - Day Out with Thomas at Caledonian Railway's Bridge of Dun station

On Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 August 2016 our Leyland National WBW735X - restored was back on duty providing the link service between Caledonian Railway's Bridge of Dun station and Montrose High Street for the second of their two special "Day Out with Thomas" weekends.

We ran six trips per day and carried nearly 150 passengers with the highlight once again being the "race" between Thomas and the bus from the station to a nearby bridge.

Once again Thomas is passed the bridge before the bus arrives with the diesel engine following on:

We all really enjoyed meeting so many Thomas fans young and not so young over the four days and hopefully we'll manage to do it all again next year. Who knows, maybe the bus will win just once!
