Re: Pandemic -- DD usage

SIX double-deckers in use on the 44, as I type, - if the bustimes.org tracker is to be believed !!
-- including 33404 in Midland Red livery, - which I find pleasing to see during these strange and "uncomfortable" times !!

Re: LMS ?

I am sure that I read that they have furloughed staff and will continue to as long as payments are being made . :? Apparently the whole fleet was put on SORN in March 2020. ...... not to mention the passengers left without means of public transport where these concerns were/are sole provider. Thank...

LMS ?

Has anyone seen any buses operating the services that LMS would normally be operating ?

I am very pleased to see that a "skeleton" 363 has quietly reappeared in First's timetables from 14/6 20.

Seems odd how Astons are still running their 19 and 21 service in Droitwich for instance but LMS aren't running their 20 to Westlands. Not to mention their Worcest...
