Some classic old vehicles were out and about on the streets of Eastbourne and surrounding areas at the weekend as a fleet of preserved buses gave free rides along the seafront and out to Beachy Head, Pevensey Bay, Hailsham, Birling Gap, Princes Park and the Eastbourne Miniature Steam railway.

Most services were full, the sun shone and everyone had a nostalgic time on the ninth annual Classic Bus Running Day, organised by Country Bus Rallies.

There were also plenty of stalls with bus memorabilia under cover in Eastbourne Railway Station.
