Some news, albeit not finalised:

It sounds very positive news from the article, it'd certainly be good to see some improvement/enhancement of the 382/550/551/X50, hopefully some simplification too, true equally of the Worcester to Upton/Tewkesbury services and the 365. I guess it can't be long until timetables are registered with VOSA.

Take note of the very end of the story where it says "negotiations are still on going"...

Indeed, I was under the impression that spending on public transport by WCC was set to go in only one direction, and that's down. I'm surprised the 147 seems to have been kept going by WCC, it's a good 15 months since the First withdrawal and it was rumoured to be a 6 month trial... I guess September is 3 years since the big 2014 changes, wonder if there will be any contract/service changes etc...

Thanks sockin; however, there was the potential for another photo of it ! :D - late afternoon a 382 was stuck in front of the Wadborough railway crossing (IE: safely) - because the automatic barriers were stuck down.

I hope Railtrack have got it fully sorted by Monday - - I would hate anything to spoil the new "50s" on Monday +.

Nice photo. I would have liked to get some "last day" pictures but I was working. The driver in your photo is my son working his favourite turn for the last time.
