Re: Kington opportunity ?

I always assumed it was an ex-airport bus? I had missed the fact that W1 DRM also had flashing amber lights fitted, this bus had Volvo B10BLE chassis and Alexander B44F bodywork and was new to DRM 03/00. DM51 BUS was a Volvo B6BLE with East Lancs B33F bodywork and new to DRM 10/01. I have used past...

Re: The 35

Because of the rumour that Worcester might get 10 year old Mercedes Citaros, and use them on the 35, I've referred to the bus graph to see what the current allocation is; -- I had noticed that much newer StreetLites were often on it, but I was shocked to find that just 5 StreetLites provide the mai...

Re: Stratford Blue 15675 at Redditch 8 February 2018

[quote=sockin-1975 post_id=4143 time=1518349581 user_id=104] I got lucky in Pershore with 15675. Rare enough to get a Decker in Pershore , let alone seeing Stratford Blue in the town. However ! - does anyone know if Midland Red (or even Stratford Blue :lol: ) ever used DDs in Pershore in the 50's (...

Britannia 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' at Worcester 10 February 2018.

A very cold, wet and dark day made the camera work very hard, so please excuse any blurring or poor definition! On the plus side the dampness was good for steam effects and showed that the vintage coaches seemed to have working steam heat. I remember this class of locomotives in the 1950s working th...

Re: PEZ 3058 still at work in Bromsgrove 11 January 2018

That Clearway lettering on the side is a recent addition so maybe an indication that PEZ could be around for some time yet :) No sign of PEZ on Thursday lunchtime 8 February 2018, the Charford service was in the hands of Plaxton Primo MX06 AEB which is pictured in Bromsgrove bus station. Presume th...

Stratford Blue 15675 at Redditch 8 February 2018

Travelled over to Redditch today, 8 February 2018, intending to take some photographs, but the wind was whistling down through the bus station with no mercy so decided to cut my losses and head back to Bromsgrove. Whilst waiting for the next service, my eye was caught by a blue and white double-deck...

Re: 66305

Rare photos! Whilst looking through my files for something else, I came across this shot of 66305 taken on the afternoon of 7 September 2017. Did the bus only go out in service that day, and did it make the trip to Evesham and back without any problems? [attachment=0]07 September 2017 Crowngate 104...
