Re: D1015 'Western Champion'

Thanks Tim. I don't normally look on this section, but I was slightly tempted by the number " xx015", and because I liked the styling of the Western class, when I had a brief phase of train spotting with my school chums in the Sixties. The styling of the windscreens is somewhat similar to that of th...

Re: DD shortage (10/9/21) ??

I have requested a Decker for the 333 service from Worcester to Hanley Castle School via Kempsey, which was loaded to full capacity when I drove it on Wednesday, so it may be that a third vehicle is needed. Excellent news, thanks bmmoboy ! - I believe that the HCS has a good reputation, and I think...

DD shortage (10/9/21) ??

My perception is that WR is now short of DDs -- In this morning's peak period all 9 were in use on the S1-S5; 30 ( - the 0800 dep from Crowngate ); 45; X50; and the 365 - - I assume this use of a DD today on the 365 was based on demand from scholars. The 32S single-decker was "rammed" with school ki...

Re: The Bus Rally Worcester

Thanks Matt !!

Are First going to use only single-deckers on the X14, or will they use DDs ??

( - I realise that the loadings are highly unlikely to NEED 'deckers !)

Re: 36241 & 36242

..... I've got Hanley Castle schools this week so I probably won't get a drive (then I'm on holiday for three weeks so I won't be able to report on what they are like. I'd love Double-Decker loadings to return to the 363 / 365, but they had diminished to single-deckers only, even before the pandemi...
