Re: Diamond in and around Bromsgrove.

The interesting combination of a silver liveried Diamond bus with Hanson fleet names on the side doing a 43 from Bromsgrove to Redditch today certainly caused some bewilderment earlier . . . . ;) And with Midland Red buses turning green . . . . . . . . :roll: :D :D

Re: Diamond in and around Bromsgrove.

Wessex liveried WX07UOB/30001 , brought back memories of "Red Diamond's" in Bromsgrove bus station this morning, to be fair , all destination displays were accurate so passengers we aware of what service the bus was on. [202]. :)

Re: C1 college service.

Nice shot, love the old d/d also. There are quite a few pictures of 913/914 on Flickr showing the two buses on plenty of Johnsons routes , including the X50. My copy of "Busview" suggests that Bromsgrove College owned former Midland Red coach GHA 333D during the mid eighties - not sure if they ever ...
