Re: Autumn service changes ??

It would be nice if the new timtable booklets had been made available prior to the new services launching. Popped into Worcester this morning and there were Malvern and 50s timetables at Crowngate and that was it. The Touris Information Centre had posters up advising that they had not recived any of...

Re: City Route 38 and X38 to Royal Hospital.

Well said Tim. Obviously the reason for this is to ensure that buses are on time for the main peak flows of the service into the city in the AM and out of the city in the PM. Bus this seems particularly cruel on those down Canterbury road, to have such large gaps in service, maybe every other journe...

Re: Solo's going to Cymru

Had the chance to travel on 53058 today operating from Haverfordwest depot on service 356 between Milford Haven and Pembroke. A fascinating route with great views of the Cleddau Estuary and a route that varies between fast A roads and single track roads. Luckily 53058 managed all this with ease, and...

Re: Sun and buses at Bromsgrove and Droitwich 8 April 2017

Some great photos there, Tim. I see 'PEZ' several times a week and often wonder for how long it can carry on. When new, am I right in thinking that their intended lifespan was about 7 years? If so, it's continued regular use is quite remarkable although I guess it's present route is not particularl...

Re: Stevenson on 303/4

Something tells me that there was no link by 303 between Worcester and Kidderminster once Stevensons pulled off this service, and that the 303 ran between Kidderminster and Hartlebury only. Just how the good people of Ombersley, who didn't own cars, coped I don't know. Correct me if I am wrong, but...

53058 has entered service at First Cymru's Haverfordwest depot.
Interesting interloper amongst all the previously 100% Dart fleet currently based there.

No doubt these will find it easier to go round some of the narrow Pembrokeshire roads, but a disappointing reduction in seating capacity.

Re: Kidderminster Depot

For the rare opportunity to see a Hybrid bus in Worcester (or indeed a bus carrying Preston fleetnames!) 30125 is on the 295 today. Currently on the 0930 ex Kidderminster.

Re: Large Rail Contract Oct 2016 - Buses on Loan

I wonder if the Rail Replacement contract is the Bromsgrove line closure from the 25th October?
