Dudley's mini-coach was a surprise. Was it just passing through, or operating a regular or seasonal service?

What a motley collection those Diamond vehicles are.
Is the 'Signature' an actual posh brand for a route, or is it just a pipe dream :lol:

I suspect it is still in the livery of it's previous operator.

Signature is the brand they use in Solihull - some of the signature buses are Hybrids (originally from Black Diamond)

Nice pics as always Tim. For me, my favourite memories of Rdditch are Leyland Lynx's on the Matchborough circles.

Mmm....not another! Am I right in thinking that more Diamond buses get consumed by fire than is the case with most operators and, if so, why? Is it a maintenance issue or down to something else?

Incidentally, a picture I saw tweeted by West Midland Fire Service suggests that the fire spread to a bus shelter rather than a bus stop. The usual sloppy journalism that we seem to get these days, not knowing the difference between the two.
