Re: The "Fifties"

Card 57 is unchanged. The service is basically an all-stops version of the X50 and can be used by anyone. The yellow school buses do not have ticket machines fitted so can only be used on school contracts, unless they provide a conductor. Can’t see that happening! The morning journey is worked with ...

Re: The "Fifties"

A few changes are to be expected to "the 50s" in March. These have not been registered yet so are subject to change if somebody somewhere changes their mind. Or someone has a better idea! The main change will be the Service 52 route which will be the same as now between Worcester and Drakes Broughto...

Re: Conductors Whistles in Times Gone By

In Malvern, growing up in the early 1950's I had an almost daily experience as to why, because we lived on the Howsell crossroads in Malvern Link which was then the terminus of the hourly M12 Great Malvern to Belmont service... Walked into the Commercial Office in Padmore Street depot tonight to fi...

Re: 66305

66305 has been sent to Leicester to see if they can fix an ABS fault. It is due to transfer there once all the green buses are in service, so it will be interesting to see if it ever comes back.

The same thing happened last year, and it took a couple of weeks to refit the transfers
Weeks? Try months! The "Midland Red" transfers weren't refitted until late September!!

West Malvern Closed (Service 675 & 676)

From tomorrow (Monday 15th January 2018) West Malvern Road (B4232) will be closed for about 7 weeks for road works. The result is that the whole of West Malvern will not be served by Service 675 and 676. Worcestershire County Council will be running a free shuttle service using a 16-seat minibus whi...

Re: The "Fifties"

I believe that the flags for the Fifties, and also for the 144s, have arrived and the person responsible for fitting them is trying to arrange a few days off from driving so that he can fit them. He has more bus shelter signs for Crowngate to fit, but needs a couple of days to do it. This is true. ...

Re: The "Fifties"

None of the new bus stop flags are up yet. All of the 50s are carded for a single-deck bus like everything else, they get swapped around a bit. Earlier in the week 67662 decided it didn't want to go to Birmingham so my Volvo was taken off me for that and I did an X50 in a Solo. Luckily it was an off...
