Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

I got my invite to the share holders meeting in the post a couple of weeks ago, even though I sold all of my shares in 2006. 🙄

Re: Livery change on Salt Road buses ?

That is correct, but I saw the driver who organised it the other day and he told me they weren’t fitted until AFTER the event had finished!

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

Stagecoach have their problems, but I’m happy working for them. They do seem to have more of a “long-term” outlook than First, which can’t be bad, but in Gloucester they work very closely with the County Council and that won’t be possible in Worcester. I think whoever takes over will have their hand...

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

(I don't like the Stagecoach livery, nor the interior floors of their buses - which look like they are covered in vomit - and indeed make me nauseous, -- -- any chance of a photo, Adam ?? :D ) Not sure which bit you hate the most, so here’s a shot looking down at the rear seat and floor for you.

Re: Worcestershire's future passenger transport

Many people have left Worcester in the last 12-months. I think if I walked into Padmore Street depot today the only people I would know would be the engineers!

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

1003 and 1005 were both repainted under First ownership. 1003 after it was stolen and recovered from Ireland in a different livery, and 1005 after being rebuilt when the roof was caved in by a falling tree near Upton-on-Severn. Both unusual circumstances and I guess they would have seen out their da...

Re: Easter 2019 Event at Wythall.

There is nothing left of it any more. A modern apartment block is where it once stood. The same will be very true of Hereford soon.

Re: Summer Saturday 44

Yes. Following the closure of the Commercial Office at Worcester and the work moving to Leicester, they forgot to register the service for this year. Same goes for Service 418.

Re: will diamond buy worcester

I think Stagecoach West might be interested in Bristol as they have already expanded into that area by buying Wessex last year and increasing services earlier this year. Given a choice between expanding south to Bristol or north to Worcester, south is the clear choice every time. Maybe First could d...
