Re: Changes to Worcester city 36/36A & 37 from 05/01/20.

And I remember the days when the 144 ran direct between Bromsgrove and Birmingham without mucking about going over speed bumps around Catshill. And they lost a regular passenger in me as it's a 25 minute walk now from my home to catch a 144. Much easier to get the car out and drive to the station (...

Re: Changes to Worcester city 36/36A & 37 from 05/01/20.

The 144 is being reduced to an hourly service for most of the day That's a shock !! :shock: It would appear then that the Salt Road rebranding exercise has been a failure. I have always felt that giving buses silly names and painting them in odd colours is not really what passengers (sorry, custome...

Re: Delays and strikes on West Midlands Railway

Couldn't agree more, Tim. The concept of one person operated trains is sheer lunacy.

Re: Lovely Lamposts or Tidier Stations?

Makes no sense at all though but is infuriating to regular passengers who are getting a pretty rotten service of late. Shrub Hill of course has suffered from years of neglect and needs lot spending on it. Bromsgrove is brand new and just doesn't need attention at the moment so pity they can't spend ...

Re: New Salt Road Events

But nothing that I have seen in the local press, either before or after. Shouldn't think too many of the locals read Bus and Coach Week. Seems like an opportunity missed.

Lovely Lamposts or Tidier Stations?

I notice that, although the lamps are still quite new, West Midlands Trains have been repainting dozens of lampposts in and around Bromsgrove railway station in their company colours. Actually, the orange on the posts looks much better than the awful yucky yellow livery on their trains but you do ju...

I see Redditch firefighters were called out at around 6.30 this morning to a bus fire. The report didn't actually say that it was a Diamond bus........
I see the bus was in Tanhouse Lane, Redditch and that the fire in the engine was 'out on arrival' so probably no great harm done.

Re: "along the Salt Road" !

Does that mean there are green buses elsewhere once again making a point that route branding isn’t worth it, esp. if they don’t stick to route! ;) Is there any evidence that it is actually worth doing- in terms of increased passenger numbers? As others have said, surely what they need is a comforta...
