Re: Job Losses

I think it will be a very long time before the coach industry recovers, if at all. The bus side of things should bounce back a bit quicker, but even that won't be the same again.

Spotted, A Long Way From Home

I was up in the Peak District today and on my way home on the M42 near Tamworth, I saw a StreetDeck with Worcester branding heading the other way. No idea what a Worcester StreetDeck was doing so far north, heading north on a Sunday afternoon, but I'm guessing it must have been destined for one of t...

Re: New Home page

I guess that "chason" is the oldest member of the forum, - but is there anyone who is a regular at the museum who is older ??

Re: Firstgroup Set To Go Bust

Back in the day, I owned thousands of FirstGroup shares. As Tim said, they were once worth about £8 each and if I had sold them at the right time I could have almost bought my own bus. The price started to go down but I held on to them waiting for them to go back up again. In December 2005, I found ...

Re: Next Service changes

Word on the street is that LMS chose to close their doors and claim their 80% furlough money form the government, rather than fight it out with a reduced service. Website and bus stop information will be hard to find as these have not been considered essential jobs and the people that do them have b...
