Re: Hay Festival 2018 (?)

No idea if they different spec other than being fitted with Air Conditioning,...

Large Private Hire

Arrived in Hay this morning to find the entire Yeomans fleet had decided to up-sticks and move to Wales for the day. It was pissing down with rain so I didn't bother with photos, but I did take this with my phone to give an idea. More were parked out of shot.

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

Customer - "But it says Worcester on the front" (below the windscreen) My reply - "there's an advert on the side for Gloucester Quays, but we don't go their either" Once had a customer insisting I sell them a ticket for Droitwich when I was loading passengers for a 551 to Evesham. He said it says D...

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

Perfect example today... Bumped in to an ex-First driver in Hereford Bus Station. He said he had heard a rumour a Leicester bus was in the City earlier in the day. To which I said, yes, that one... pointing to the large double-deck bus with "Leicester" written on the side, that was parked about 30-y...

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

I don’t think anyone ever notices the side fleet names. I often drove Worcester branded buses in Hereford, and visa versa and nobody ever said a word. Yesterday I drove a Leicester branded bus all day and nobody noticed that either.

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

If you recall we tried the X98 via Bromyard last year? Well that didn’t work out so it was dropped for this year. However, the original idea for that was to run the bus via Great Malvern and Ledbury into Hereford over the old X91 route. That didn’t happen for two reasons... Firstly, both of those to...

Re: Hay Festival 2018 (?)

I know Mick Mansfield and one other driver has some Rail, but I don't know what days or routes. I'll be taking forum member "Red Midland" to Hay with me in the morning so he can refresh his memory on the route. He will then be replacing Mick on the evening Hay services to free him up for the Rail. S...

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

Looking at the running boards... One will depart Crowngate on the 0940 Service X99 (me driving) and the other will work the 0750 Service 365 from Link Top to Hanley School, followed by the 0900 Service 44 from Barnards Green to Crowngate. It will then park up for just over an hour before working the...
