Re: Kidderminster Depot

As a postscript to the fuel leakage story, there's a picture on Facebook showing said incontinence pads and, BX07 KPP, the offending vehicle.

PS Sorry - only just seen the picture above!

Re: Kidderminster Depot

[quote=ANDREW post_id=3526 time=1510736718 user_id=56] I heard this mentioned on the two pm news, I think that the No 2 service was mentioned and it appears that the "leak" went on for miles as opposed to yards . . . . so much so that a "gritting" lorry loaded with sand had to be utilised to contai...

Re: Kidderminster Depot

According to local radio, a Diamond bus caused havoc in the Kidderminster area by depositing leaking fuel on roads this morning, including outside the police station. It certainly seems that they do have maintenance problems in both Redditch and Kidderminster.

Re: Diamond in and around Bromsgrove.

I see on Twitter, a Diamond bus was yesterday involved in a RTC with a light goods vehicle at the Kidderminster Road and Perryfields road junction in Bromsgrove. From the photo looks as though the bus has come off worst. It's an awful junction that needs traffic lights or a roundabout.

Re: 'Royal Scot' on Charter at Worcester 28 Oct. 2017.

Do you know I had completely forgotton about the Devonian being sometimes Patriot hauled although I still believe it was more usually a Jubilee. I can remember the slightly odd difference in routing between south and northbound trains because my grandparents lived in Leeds and when I used to go and ...

Re: DD12 Revival

I'd echo DD12's comments.

A fine looking vehicle indeed and it doesn't look at all dated to me.

Re: "Refreshed 144" !

As someone brought up in Worcestershire, I was always led to believe that all "proper" buses were red. True in Malvern, there was the occasional sight of Bristol 'blue' (never could quite work that one out!) green buses but they looked very drab and uninspiring compared to the local fleet. However, ...

Re: 'Royal Scot' on Charter at Worcester 28 Oct. 2017.

Sorry, Tim - just realised I thanked the wrong person for the Royal Scot photos. They reminded me a bit of my trips to Shrub Hill in the late 1950's and early 60's to see The Devonian (Bradford to Paignton train) which used to call at around 2:15 pm I think. It was usually hauled by a Jubilee, the o...

Re: 'Royal Scot' on Charter at Worcester 28 Oct. 2017.

Thanks for some excellent pictures of a fine locomotive, Adam. I particularly liked the one at Shrub Hill with the semaphore signals (although of course the loco would have been more familiar with upper quadrant, rather than those of the GWR lower variety!). The picture with the lush weed strewn tra...
