Firstly let me say I have been overwhealmed with the response to the setting up of the group. Its fantastic.

Now what I would like to do is go right back to the beginning.

In 1994, the Mid Hants Railway, The Watercress Line, decided to include a bus rally in its events for that year. It was spread over two days and based around Alresford and Ropley stations. Buses only ran trips in one direction between the various MHR stations, passengers being expected to travel on the train to return to the point of origin. The event was a modest success but some of the people who worked it and were bus enthusiasts knew it could be so much more. In 1995 the event moved to Anstey Park in Alton and the Alton Bus Rally was born. Since then the event has gone from strength to strength.

What I really would like to see are any pictures from those early years. Anything from 1994 to the present day.

You have all been fantastic so far. Keep them coming
