Re: Random Photos from the Back of the Shed

Many thanks for the pure nostalgia in this terrific selection of unusual photos. Sad to see the condition of some of the bits and pieces but at least they have survived and, who knows, one day they might just come in useful!

Re: Clearway/Wheelers of Catshill.

Had lunch today in the new wine bar opposite the Bromsgrove Waitrose car park. Good old PEZ must have passed half a dozen times on its way to and from Charford.

Re: FMR Mercedes Citaro acquisitions

Could it have been The Opposite Lock in Gas Street Basin just off Broad St., Birmingham? That sounds familiar, but I am going back over forty years - saw ELO which was a revelation at the time; rock and roll plus strings. Yes, my era too, I'm afraid. Saw Bev Bevan from ELO and The Move on stage at ...

Re: FMR Mercedes Citaro acquisitions

Yes, I like that description a lot ( - but I didn't know that you're a rock fan Tim ) !! ;) Very much so in my dim and distant past, saw many 'heavy', progressive and blues bands live at such venues as Malvern Winter Gardens, The Wharf at Holt Fleet, The Coppertops and a place whose name I forget j...

Along with 500 others on ten coaches, I attended the launch of Johnsons new holiday brochure at the National Memorial Arboretum yesterday. During the presentation, director John Johnson revealed that two new coaches had been ordered for delivery next April. He didn't say what make but the recent int...

Re: FMR Mercedes Citaro acquisitions

Like other enthusiasts, I find the variety of liveries now appearing of great interest but I do wonder whether the average passenger really cares a jot or, in many cases even notices or understands why his or her bus wears a particular livery. My feeling is that their main concern is still that ther...

Re: Twilight Running at Wythall Saturday 27 October 2018

Pretty good, I'd say, considering the state of the weather. Generally speaking, I prefer the more natural shots than the posed ones in the sort of perfect weather which we very rarely get anyway. Thanks, Tim.

Re: 100 Years of 144 celebration 15 October 2014
