Antwerpen Calling

So, Professional Matt and I had a little road trip in the T Vend van last weekend to Antwerp, Belgium and Wuppertal, Germany….. It was a very nerdy trip to see Trams and the Hanging train (again) in the hope that the new trains were running. They were not, which means any other excuse to go later in the year.

Most of these night time pictures are blurry because Matthew and I decided after numerous drinks to go for a walk outside the hotel at 1am…

Showbus 2015

So, today we’ve been to the yearly bus rally, Showbus.

I took one of our electric Streetlites, 5007.

I have to say this is probably one of the poorest organised Showbus events I’ve been to. ¬†We were lucky with “only” waiting 40 minutes to get parked up, some buses had a three hour wait!

There seem to be quite a number of buses getting stuck in the soft ground too. If it’s held at Woburn Abbey again next year I think I’ll give it a miss…..

 

Anyway, 5007 did us well and only used 30% charge for the whole day. :-)

and to end the post, here’s a picture of Professional Matt eyeing up an ice cream van 😂

Going by the flames in the first picture it seems they were very lucky that there wasn’t more damage done to the Bus Station/Buszy

There has been unconfirmed reports that the bus had mechanical issues earlier in the day, but of course that could be something completely unrelated.
