The Aintree Assortment

We joined Bus Running Days and Aintree Coachlines for their charity bus running day using vehicles from the Aintree Coachlines, Hilton Travel and Springfield Travel Group fleets.

On Saturday 3rd June 2017, we joined Bus Running Days and Aintree Coachline for The Aintree Assortment charity bus running day event – which turned out to be very popular with local bus enthusiasts.

The day started outside St George’s Hall opposite Liverpool Lime Street station at approximately 10:45 am. This was an ideal opportunity for any local bus enthusiast to visit Aintree Coachlines, Avon Buses, Helms of Eastham, Hilton Travel, Maghull Coaches and Springfields premises.

As with previous events, we again found this event to be of extremely good value, the fare was just £10 per person which was payable on the day and this gave access to various bus depots and various buses on the day. The funds raised on the day will be kindly donated to the Claire House Charity.

With that, we would like to thank the organisers as well as Aintree Coachline, Avon Buses, Helms of Eastham, Hilton Travel, Maghull Coaches and Springfields for facilitating such a day.

If you are interested in coming to one of these bus running days, check out the Bus Running Days website for their upcoming events.

      Thanks for taking the time to leave us a comment Tom, these are the only pictures we have of the new Avon buses at the moment. Once they are out in service we’ll be sure to post further pictures.
