Gloucester depot got it’s own Heritage bus today when E300 27778 emerged from the paint shop in Gloucester depot. This is also the last time Gloucester will paint their own bus, as all repaint are moving to Bristol depot. Photo by Gloucester Operations Manager, James Williams, outside Gloucester Tra...

Re: Buses not in use Tuesday 3 May 2022

The expected PVR before WCC stepped in to help the 31 and 37 was 55 vehicles. I’m guessing the PVR is now about 57.

Re: The End of Worcester to Birmingham 144 !!

Yes, on Sundays during the winter and evenings on Monday to Thursdays the 144 would be run with a minibus. I remember driving a Mercedes L608D and later the O.814 Vario into Birmingham and being totally ignored by people at bus stops as they had no idea! Not my best efforts with a camera as it was ...

Re: The End of Worcester to Birmingham 144 !!

…meanwhile at Wythall. Nice to see they have put the Worcester blind back in. I was up there a few years ago and helped fit a Redditch blind. This was totally incorrect for that bus for the reasons Tim stated above, but the Worcester blind is so long it's diameter is too large when rolled up and it...

Re: Major Service Cuts, May 2022 !!

Currently on the 11:05 417 from Worcester to Ledbury (30th April).. I'm only passenger on the bus. Talking to a driver, he says that quite normal now for the late morning 417 out and back. Makes me start to fear the worst for this long standing route too. Streetlite 13 on it today 47513. Beautiful ...
