Re: Johnson sold to Diamond

Talking to the Diamond staff member who is doing the route training.... Diamond are not serving the Worcester Royal Hospital on their 149 as they say it is too narrow and tight after doing a risk assessment. They are advising to board and alight at County Hall and walk along the alleyway. Two thing...

Re: Johnson sold to Diamond

Caught the 08:55 149 from Worcester to Redditch on Diamond's first day. Streetdeck 40725 in Diamond Northwest livery. It was running late so the driver and his route learner let us on in Crowngate before heading up to Brabourne for the schools. Then returned via bus station to start back working. S...

Re: Forthcoming Fleet changes

There are some changes coming up to the fleet at Worcester. Firstly, the 6669x Plaxton Volvos are leaving, destination unknown, however the one with seat belts will be staying. Am I correct in saying 66696-9 are the ones with seat belts? If that is the case, will it only be 66691-5 departing? I thi...

Re: Johnson sold to Diamond

Which double decker will Diamond put on the 149 on Monday? I have read on the wmbusphotos forum that two StreetDecks have moved down to Tividale, and that they will move to Redditch to replace the two leased Enviro400mmcs used by Johnsons, so if and when that happens it should mean sightngs of a Di...

The Forthcoming timetables section has now been updated, and it shows that the daytime Mon-Fri 32 has also reverted to a 30 min interval.

Re: Revised Worcester - Reddich service 25/4/22

I do agree there seems to be an error DD12 - and for the 1615 Worcester - Redditch journey as well. So will the 149 be double deck all day on schooldays? Yes, you're right JT, - the same (query) applies to the PM schools / non-schools journeys !! I only saw one working yesterday afternoon, and it w...

Re: Revised Worcester - Reddich service 25/4/22

Thanks JT for the reminder that it has been a through service to Brum in recent times -- their new timetable is a composite one though, still showing the connections with the 150. In my opinion there's something wrong with their new T-T in that it shows the 149S arriving Crowngate, Mon-Fri schoolday...
