Re: New Forest Services

With the proposed changes to the 24 and 31 would be expecting the council to see efficiencies and cut the 713 and 746 by the end of the year. But that all might change now Stagecoach have the whole network again...

Re: Disabled and pensioner concessionary passes under threat

As a non-pensioner - my obersvation was that the leisure use significantly increased once it came in nationally. So, using a summer 420 as an example - Hereford council would be paying X amount for 40-odd “Brummie” pensioners (on a really busy day) to have a day out. They’d take up all of the fixed ...

Surely they’ve not put the fares up already! (Or should that read from £0?)

Re: Disrupted services

Surely repeated failure to operate the timetable will lead to the Traffic Commissioner investigating - if it gets reported? Would expect that failures that are the fault of the company (insufficient staff employed) would result in reprimand if proven. Would also say the social media team (now in Lee...

Re: Service 23... A lovely double-deck route

(The only snag is "23" is my unlucky number -- -- can you ask Stagecoach to renumber it for me ?) Originally 73 (Gloucester-Newport), first cut back to Chepstow, then Lydney. Current route came about by adding on the former Dukes 721 (Lydney-Coleford) - that used to be run using Solos and Darts bef...

Re: Service 23... A lovely double-deck route

You've conveniently answered my questions on Milkwall outstation (if part of Ross or Gloucs), and if you'll be doing the Forest routes without me asking! Will keep a look out if I'm around on Saturday. Neither a Stagecoach route nor double decker, but Lydney-Cinderford has similar charm for anyone s...

Re: Midland Red West memorabilia 1995/1997

I’ll join the ranks that would love to see any more old running cards if there are any still around - the interworkings always seemed a bit more complicated in the “old” days :-) Sadly can only just remember the last days of the Shropshire network. Quite easy to work out how Hereford and Kidderminst...

Re: 1999 DRM fleet list

...I’ve still got a lot of blanks and pretty much given up all hope of identifying the “Dennis Sabre” (called “Blenheim” I think) that I used to see a lot of back around 1997/1998! :-) From PSV circle 1999. 96 GVJ 878 1983 Bedford YMP Plaxton DP45F (ex UWG882Y c.6/97 name "Blenheim") Thanks.

Re: 1999 DRM fleet list

Move forward a year or so and he owned more low floor buses than FMR... Continuing the Bromyard theme - for a real challenge can anybody list all of Martin Perry’s fleet starting from 1 ending and 200 and whatever (including names)? I’ve still got a lot of blanks and pretty much given up all hope of...
