Re: C1 college service.

Is this the Heart of Worcestershire College Inter-Campus Redditch - Bromsgrove contract? Johnsons bought its 3 Enviro 400MMCs for the X20 Stratford - Birmingham service, but they have been used elsewhere at times. For a while last year, one was scheduled to operate Stratford - Banbury school journey...

Re: The X18

Stagecoach are making changes to several Leamington area services from Saturday 16 September 2017. The X17 and X18 are swapping routes between Stratford and Longbridge (near Warwick), so the X18 will now run direct via the A46 and A439 instead of via Wellesbourne. The X18 is now definitely the fast ...

Re: Birmingham services

i spotted a wmpte bus with the registration kox747f on the 193 im thinking this photo was taken before 1976 might this vehicle be operating at lea hall at the time :) Possibly. Lea Hall took on the 163, 169 and 193 when Moseley Road and Sheepcote Street closed in 1975. If WMPTE 3747 had a blind sho...

Re: Birmingham services

I can provide some information about this. From the 1920s 161 ran Birmingham - Water Orton - Coleshill, and 165 ran Birmingham - Sheldon - Marston Green - Coleshill. Until 15 March 1969 short workings to Water Orton showed the number 171 and shorts to Marston Green showed 166. On 6 December 1969 a n...

Re: Bus Service in Leicester

Leicester Corporation (which many years later became Leicester Citybus) ran trams along Aylestone Road to Aylestone until 1947, when they were replaced by motor buses. Actually, none of the operators Tim Brown mentions used Aylestone Road, which runs south from the city. I believe they provided serv...

Re: Bus Service in Leicester

The bus routes along Aylestone Road in 1944 included the following. I think this is a complete list, but I may have overlooked one or two. The Leicester terminus was the Newarke: - 603 Leicester - Broughton Astley, via Cosby 604 Leicester - Blaby 610 Leicester - Lutterworth, via Cosby, Broughton Ast...

Diamond's journeys on the 26 are being renumbered X19 as well. Also, most X19 journeys between the peaks (Mon-Sat) ...

Re: A Very Sorry S8

I didn't know that 3290 had survived either - sad indeed to see it in this state.

Is that an ex-Birmingham City Transport Leyland Tiger PS2, also not in a good state, alongside it?
