Re: The 35

I had a text message from one of our drivers... Thanks Adam, and thanks to the photographer !! - IF we get Mercedes Citaros for the 35, perhaps First will get these StreetLites sorted by Wrightbus (at their expense) ! Unfortunately, Wrightbus has got no spare money as they are making 100 workers re...

Re: The 35

There's a brief article on Worcester News this afternoon, "to say" there's a broken down bus stuck at the "Chequers" roundabout --

it doesn't show a bus in the photo, and doesn't say if it's one of First's ;)

Re: DD12 Revival

DD 12, the engine runs fine and I'm sure most of the smoke is due to it not having a proper good blowout for many years. A new exhaust system has been delivered and I'm sure this will make a difference as the old one is full of a tar like substance which is really flammable ( don't ask 😃 ) When I g...

Re: Kington opportunity ?

How about a Bromyard outstation then Adam ? ( :D ) - how old is Dave R. Morris - will he retire soon ? I've always felt that one of the big bus companies ought to have had one here in the past. Sargeants have, in the recent past, (during the day, I think) - parked a single-decker near Martley School...

Re: The 35

My guess is that the area around the Chequers and railway bridge needs re-modelling to include modern coordinated traffic lights that also give priority to buses, and -- the area around the Vauxhall Inn needs re-modelling with perhaps two crossings, but with the removal of the existing one with that...

Kington opportunity ?

I see in today's "Notices + Proceedings", that Sargeants of Kington have had their operating license reduced from 27 vehicles to 22, with a further reduction of two to come in April. I'm sad about this, as it could be the beginning of the end for them -- I'm wondering if any of their bus or schools ...
