Re: DDs on 144

I cannot see anything on W.News about strike action affecting the trains, -- is the B'ham - Worcester rail service definitely disrupted, or is there a threat of "lightning strikes" ?? No trains Worcester to Birmingham via either route every Saturday from today to the end of the year. Also no rail r...

DDs on 144

According to the tracker, there are no less than 6 DDs on the full 144 to Birmingham today. I imagine this is due to the German Xmas market + Xmas shopping. I had hoped for DDs to be needed in the last few years, and this is a very welcome development. The four StreetDecks in use are Euro 6 complian...

Re: DD12 Revival

I had it in the back of my mind that 6015 was one of the many short to medium-term DD12 allocations at Worcester, and that it might NOW have spent longer at WR than it did in the 1960s and 70s. I've now checked in the Fleet History section of the main website, and indeed this is the case ! I see it ...

Re: Worcester & Droitwich 30 October 2019.

I took these back in September (4th) 2019 and didn't post them as I was miffed about withdrawal of Saturday 37 service. The grapevine news is that Worcestershire County Council are going to support the Saturday 37 which will resume working from 23 November 2019 and they will also co-operate with Fi...

Re: Worcester's DD usage.

There have been some pleasing changes since the schools went back on Monday. There's been a DD on the 45 all day, and on the 16.10 X50 to Evesham. I decided to use the latter today, and was very pleased that by the top of the London Road it was evident that a DD really was needed ! Some days it has ...

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

Matt ! - I'm intrigued by the the Malverneer name ! I frequently walk in the Malverns, and have done for over 50 years, but I have never come across that name before !! - I've just "googled" it, and there are no links / references to it ! If you have just come-up with the name, I am very impressed i...

Re: Worcester Fleet Movements mid/late 2019

Looking on the bus tracker, it shows 64014 as out of service whereas both the grey ones are in service (today), -- could it be possible that THIS (old) Citaro is being converted to Euro6 ? -- or was one of the others done very quickly ? :?: 64014 had been off the road with an ongoing and frustratin...

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

I have for a long time fancied a green livery for the 44 (similar or same colours as the Salt Road) -- -- that's because of the scenic area that "the Malverns" is, and to emphasise the green credentials of the bus, and to encourage travellers to "be green". However, if it's true that FMR is to repla...
