Lancaster Bomber

On another post I mentioned I was at the Chateau Impney today and I saw a Trident go by. Well, that was rather dull in comparison to this wonderful thing, flying rather low. Not my best photo ever, but after a couple of quick clicks I purposefully put down the camera so I could just watch and enjoy ...

Re: 33404

Rescuing it might be interesting if it needs a suspended tow, it might make it too tall for the bridge. I would hope they realise it need to turn round first, or they could do a normal tow until they clear the bridge. Not many options to turn as both the A44 tyre shop and entrance to Brook Works ar...

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

As to the future of Padmore Street, it has been subject to rumours of closure for more years than seems possible now (I was a young man when they first came to light and am a white haired 74 year old geezer now!), perhaps these can still be taken with a pinch of salt - hopefully. That said, with a ...

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

I think your right about LMS too as Aston’s are a bit further out of town - maybe they could operate the 32 and possibly go for Upton routes again and probably the ‘S’ school routes? That said the site of the current Aston’s depot is also set for housing development and they were/are also searching...

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

Well this has all gone quiet so maybe it’s time for me to add my theory on the future of Worcester bus services. Yes, I have asked questions and the reason I’ve been quiet is not because I’ve been told to keep my mouth shut, it’s because nobody is saying anything. Therefore I am now playing mystic m...

Re: Transfers in + out

Network Rail have said, some years ago, that the Comer Road bridge is due to be strengthened in 2020. That said, the present limit must be close to being broken even if a Solo goes across with the large number of cars parked on it (even thought most of it has zig zag markings!) They pulled the limi...

Re: PEZ 3058 still at work in Bromsgrove 11 January 2018

Not seen it reported anywhere, so I think my guess in April about it being exported may have been correct.

You will be pleased to know that on my visit to Hay on Wye a few weeks ago I saw 506 was still being used in service, so there is still at least one survivor.

I saw a white StreetLite heading South on the M5 near Worcester the other day. I guess that was it.

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

News is official... https://www.firstgroup.com/about-us/news/first-manchester-announces-intention-sell-bolton-depot-and-operations-rotala-plc Let's hope that means they have used-up all their money / credit, and won't be interested in acquiring any other operations for a very long time !!
