Re: Conductors Whistles in Times Gone By

Re: KEV'S Bus route 355 in Crowngate bus station.

Just a thought, if Kevs take a liking to stage work, they would be well suited to take over the 147 service to Romsley as their depot is on the route. :idea: I have just seen a post on Tony Hunters West Midlands Bus Photo's site stating that Kev's are taking over the operation of the 147 in Februar...
