The event was centred around the municipal buildings in Dorking, which offered splendid facilities for parking service buses between turns as well as visiting buses, plus a variety of stalls.
With a little time to spare, I went to see what had arrived.
Ex-GreenLine RF255 was pulled up behind them. Green-Line RT3491 was next, with a brace of red RFs behind: RF486 and RF489.
I walked over to the bus-park near the entrance. Red doorless RF366 was parked next to GS13, with glass-house RF19 and modernised RF213 also in the line.
Turning round, I saw RT604 parked next to RMC 1476, both in NBC green livery with London Country fleetnames.
A cluster of GSs was next, with GS1, Southern Motorways liveried GS2, and GS32 waiting their turns.
Meanwhile a couple more RTs arrived, with Country liveried RT2083 and Memory Lane's RT1790. But now it was time to return to RF255, which had been kitted out with Greenline blinds, to go on duty. The day was beginning.
