Re: "along the Salt Road" !

Observations of 144 today when I’ve seen buses both while I was in Birmingham and on my way after work between Bromsgrove and Droitwich. A spare bus (didn’t see fleet number) seen on Bristol St Birmingham going out of town at around 13.40 On my way home, an empty 33405 only just leaving Bromsgrove a...

53062 is off the road as the floors are rotten on it
That doesn’t sound good, is it fixable/worth fixing or will it be consigned to the corner of the patch and a donor of parts? :o

Re: "along the Salt Road" !

What does it do? Well they didn't warn the drivers the system was live so on the first day it was quite successful in giving one driver the shock of his life! It uses the GPS signal from the ticket machine to work out which stop is next and announce the names of the bus stop as the vehicle approach...

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

In a similar manner to Kingfisher branding for route 32 in Staffordshire, no visible First branding, are they ashamed of the company name or something :mrgreen:

Could be confusing for those with city wide First tickets if they don’t know!

Re: My Ideal/Future FMR Fleet List

In terms of ‘Dream Fleets’ are there any members who would prefer to see some of the VX54/05 E300s which went to Stoke not that long ago come back to Worcester? (Maybe in place of the OGI Citaros given their age, or just for nostalgia reasons given they were new to FMR)

Train Rattles

Elsewhere on the forum there have been comments about bus build quality and rattles, this is the train interior rattle rant! Travelling on a cross city 323 earlier today for the first time in a long time it was noticable how solid and non-rattling these trains are given they’re over 25 years old! (A...

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

Do I remember seeing suggestions from other forum members that National Express may be interested or just that they may be a good alternative?

Re: Citaro woes.

Maybe we should start an online petition to city/county council somewhere/somehow. As i have ommented previously I don't think much of the disparity where it seems that dirty buses get palmed off on areas that haven't got CAZ or similar in place.

Re: Salt Road 2019

Both a nimrod citaro and a spare bus on the 144/A this evening. What is the point of spending all the extra money on route specific refurbisment, marketing and special liveries if they don't keep to their routes! :shock: Also First better get their act together before the Birmingham CAZ comes in oth...

Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

Maybe the greens now they have more control at the city council might consider it a good idea to put forward a ‘green agenda’ for Worcester and stop it from being a dumping ground for dirty buses! Oh and more importantly generally see what can be done to sort out the city’s transport system both in ...
