Re: Shrub Hill canopy refurbishment.

The attached photograph shows the manufacturing company stencilled letters revealed on platform 1 canopy; this may be significant as the company re-organised in 1935 by dropping the (1926) part of the Ltd name, making me wonder if the removal of the glass roof and installation of the replacement can...

Re: Shrub Hill canopy refurbishment.

The refurbishment painting contractors have just removed all the layers of paint from Shrub Hill platform 2 canopies revealing some interesting information which I believe was put there by the original manufacturers E.C & J. Keay Ltd., of Darlaston. Attached are photographs taken today (DSCF5225...

Re: 297 Kidderminster to Bridgnorth

Looking at my ancient notebook I worked the 297 in the opposite direction twice only on Thursday 10/12/92 full turn and Thursday 21/01/93 part only, not S44 & 292. The turn number was 131 on running card 15 comprising S44 school service (which school and where did it operate?), 292 - probably Ki...

297 Kidderminster to Bridgnorth

Re: Crowngate this morning.

No sign of 47610 ? I'm sure you would have noticed it !! No, but a friend asked "what was the yellow bus doing going out of service along Tolladine Road" the other day (not sure which) and I see it was out on city service yesterday. Back to the future as Worcester's breakdown truck used t...
