Re: Twilight Running Day Pt I at Wythall 25 Oct.2020

It is a matter of interest that if you go underneath 3744 (as I often do..) the chassis is the same as S8's onwards at the rear end with the extension 'kit' as per S8's etc simply bolted on, i.e. not a bespoke chassis for S12's only. In terms of similarity of window pans etc I must admit I hadn't ma...

Re: D9 5415 calls in Crowngate 11 April 2010.

Yes, rather remarkable that two ...415D's survive! Regarding 6015 the plan is (with First's help) that it will be tested to Class VI standard. Given that it still has a current CoIF since it had a valid CoF on 1/4/81 (it did cost me £23 to get a copy off my good friends at DVSA) then at least there ...

Yes, it has been through a variety of owners in the Liverpool area, it is still currently in Class VI test. Most of its maintenance has been done by a good independent repairer in the Liverpool area. I've been up there once or twice to help put with specialist knowledge and a supply of vital spare p...

Re: Transport Museum, Wythall and COVID19

We will miss your (and many others) company on Open Days. It is thanks to all our visitors that the place really comes alive. The 'hatches are now battened down' and there remains a small band of volunteers on site most days carrying on the restoration and other good works. Sadly since most of our v...

Re: £5 billion boost for bus industry announced today.

Hope you did not get a 'shock', we are still awaiting their final connection prior to opening for the Season! All part of our carbon offsetting scenario to try and convince BCC that we do take some of these pollution matters seriously.....

Re: Flooding Feb. 2020

Good to see some excellent team work yesterday in St Nicholas Street WR in trying to sort out arrivals and departures with Crowngate closed. Also pleased to have an impromptu meeting there with Nigel E (masquerading as 'Controller??) and had an erudite discussion regarding air change vs electric cha...

Re: October changes

Still one of the best retro liveries ever, hard to believe that it was five years ago this week that it was unveiled at Worcester Racecourse. I'll be sad to see it go. Next retro livery should be a saloon in Midland Red West colours, Mr Eggleton I can lend you 544 as a pattern if you need it...
