Re: Bus Fire

There is a picture on the Kidderminster Matters Facebook page which shows it smoking on the Island on the entry lane to the garage.

The excellent Oxford and Chilterns pus page has some photos this week of the MCW bodied Atlanteans that were diverted to London Country in Autumn 1972 instead of being delivered to MR. https://www.oxford-chiltern-bus-page.co.uk/Pictures%20for%20118/G%20Francis/LCNW-AN-110-GARSTON-280577-GF.jpg https...

Re: LMS ?

Quite clearly there must be some members of staff working for the relevant department of the County Council as they have managed to put together a support package to enable the Diamond 303 service to restart operation. As others have pointed out, the lack of any information on the WCC website regard...

Re: astons in kidderminster

Certainly today from my place which overlooks the 15A/15C there has been no sign of Coniston today, but every hour Astons Yutong YJ16 UTE has been going past my window! I can't see any route number displayed, but the fact that is has ...

I'm now questioning whether this is just a one-off Sunday operation if it's free! And there is no TT anywhere other than on the link I put on here!
