This was the third year of this very popular show, it was held on Sunday 16th August 2015 on Ilkeston Market place. Erewash Borough Council granted permission for the Event to be held there. The show was organised by Erewash Partnership under the direction of the C.E.O. Ian Viles. The event was supported by; Nottingham Area Bus Society Coppice Steam Trent/Barton Malcs Models Rotary Club of Ilkeston TR Register Market Inn and various Vehicle Clubs and sponsored by local business people. For a change the weather was very kind, but the most important thing was that a few thousand members of the public turned up to show their support and have faith in that Ilkeston can put a good show on. Every available space was used to park the very many historic vehicles that where on show. There was only one space that did not get filled and that was the space for 296 as it is still in intensive care with poorly suspension. But I took Mick Stantons Bedford YMT Barton 517 to the show.

Midland General 313 was awarded best bus in the show!
A bus from Trent/Barton is always welcome.
It had got to happen I could not take 296 to the show BUT the stalker was there

Poor little thing!
Back end of buses can look as good as the front.
