I'm trying to decide which Cheltenham route would be nicest to do on that - the more scenic ones from there were never traditionally CD routes were they?

Re: "along the Salt Road" !

It looks like they have done what they can to stay as close to hourly as possible, whilst keeping a consistent headway from Worcester to Bromsgrove (except at school time) and allowing for what must be very different running times around Birmingham during the peak compared to off peak. You're not go...

Re: Changes to Worcester city 36/36A & 37 from 05/01/20.

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

My guess, also with no information to point me in the right direction, is to build on Adam's theory about the depot being sold by First and combine that with the cost of pensions, which I would think is probably a big off putting factor to any purchase of the business as a going concern.
