Vintage bus enthusiasts were able to enjoy a regular service from the bus station at Queensgate to Whittlesey, where Market Street hosted a display of vehicles, some owned by local operators. From Whittlesey there was a service every 10 minutes to Ramsey, where a major classic car show was taking place at Great Whyte. Buses called at the Ramsey Fen Fair at Ramsey Rural Museum, and also the Fenland Light Railway’s Strawberries and Cream event. There will also additional services from Whittlesey to Thorney, Turves and Yaxley. Busfest is organised by Eastern Bus Enthusiasts, which aims to save, restore and foster interest in classic buses, many with local connections.
