Re: Nuneaton in January 2011

I like the photos. I worked in Nuneaton for a few years, and these photos don't seem from long ago. But on the Stagecoach front, only the Enviro 200s are still in service - and who would have thought that Centrebus at Hunckley would have morphed into Arriva becoming a ratrher bigger second force in ...

Re: Mersey Ferry & Pier Head Pt. I.

Great photos Tim. I was in Liverpool in 2010 as well, but for Diploma course contact days at the University. I managed to do the ferry on a late afternoon commuter round trip from Pier Head, calling at Seacombe and Woodside, for even less than the cruise price - and no "Ferry Cross the Mersey" music...

Re: Next Service changes

I expect the next move on the 146, 202 and 303 will be up to Worcestershire County Council. I can't blame Diamond for ceasing to run them if loadings will negligible. I wonder if WCC will increase the 182/183 Redditch - Alvechurch - Lickey - Bromsgrove from the current once a day each, to replace th...

Re: Next Service changes

From what I've been able to find out from Omnibus Society sources, although this is not totally confirmed, it looks like the 481 was suspended with effect from 23 March and the other services with effect from 6 April.

Re: Revised services from 23 March 2020.

303 between Kidderminster and Worcester suspended altogether from Friday 27 March 2020 with heavy cuts to most Diamond services elsewhere in Worcestershire from Monday 30 March 2020 ... I saw Simon Dunn reply to a post about this on Facebook on Friday saying that not one person used the 303 the pre...

Re: Buses serving Norton Parkway

A similar situation occurred a couple of years ago, when Kenilworth Station finally opened. As with Worcestershire Parkway the station opening day was confirmed at very short notice, but Stagecoach Midlands were allowed a short notice variation by the Traffic Commissioner to provide a Station Link s...

Competition around Coventry

Readers of 'Buses' will have read that Stagecoach Midlands started a Coventry - University of Warwick service, U12, on 4 January in direct competition with National Express Coventry. It runs 7 days a week - https://www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/midlands/warwick-and-leamington-unibus. This ...

Re: 292 Diamond Bus

In actual fact R & B Travel ceased operations just after the turn of the year.

From 6 January the 292 passed back to Diamond (so they now operate the whole service) and the 291 Tenbury Wells - Kidderminster passed to Yarrantons.

Re: Darts on the move?

Whilst looking for our new solo on uk buses i noticed an order of e400 cities and i just wondered if any of these were for us? https://www.ukbuses.co.uk/fleet/firsteastengland.pdf Do you mean Scania/E400 City 36901 - 36919? I'm not sure but I think these may well be for First Eastern Counties for t...
