I had to wait 'til I was 21 to get my PSV licence, cos that was the law then !

-- and they used to expire if you didn't do enough hours, or any hours, over
a period ( - I forget the details !)

When I was 12, I had a dream ( IE - a nocturnal dream ), that was very realistic, that I was having my first bus driving lesson on the Northwick Road, Worcester -- then when I was 21, I DID have my first driving lesson there -- but driving in the opposite direction !!

Meanwhile, I spotted my son driving 67664 today so I took a photo to complete the set of the last remaining Enviro300s.
Excellent - an 'embarrassing dad' moment :lol:

The Coniston's Solo broke down in Crowngate tonight... The engineer arrived in a taxi!

Meanwhile, I spotted my son driving 67664 today so I took a photo to complete the set of the last remaining Enviro300s.
Took my camera for an afternoon constitutional hoping to take a few shots of 33043 before it leaves for pastures new.

I'm sure one of those leaked so much into the cab you could save time in the morning and have a shower at work :lol:

Yes, can't remember which one it was but if it rained overnight water would gather somewhere above the cab area, then in the morning the whole lot would be dumped in the driver's lap at the first right-hand corner. 🤣

32852 had a similar problem, I was taking it out one day to do the S2 and by the time I had got to the roundabout on St Martins Gate, I was soaked. I took it back and the bodyshop removed gallons of water from above the cab. Meanwhile the S2 ran with an Enviro and a coach.
