Re: WR network from 7/3/21

It’s a typo. It instructs the web browser to display the & symbol, but whoever programmed it missed the control code from the start.

Re: Hereford 2 September 2015.

That's me loading passengers in 53061 at Credenhill terminus on the 71A.

It must have been much more than 5-years ago because I don't have grey hair :lol:

Re: BMMO in Ledbury

Ledbury in the background seems mostly unchanged from today!

The 472 only ran twice a day, and there weren’t many more 477, so nice to see both of those captured.

Re: Padmore Street garage January 1961.

From what I have been told, the two-floor Engineering office block was demolished and rebuilt in the early 1980s.

Re: Padmore Street garage January 1961.

That is a great photo!

I had no idea the pits at the "traffic office" end of the building dated back so far. I had always though they were put in during the NBC era when the internal walls were built.

Re: The first Leyland National

I remember "helping" to change the destination blind on 544 at Wythall a few years ago.

Re: Dudleys Coaches to close at end of year

I'm told First Worcester have won some additional school work as a result of the Dudleys closure, and they are taking on a few more staff. I don't have any further details at the moment though.
