More lost milage this evening with reports of bus windows being put through by kids on the 144a.
Commonplace at Yardley Wood lately.
Our first 6 had a window bricked this morning at 0430 whilst running private to Shirley.
Averaging approx at least six buses a day if not more being bricked or upper saloon windows literally being kicked out with the frame attached :evil:
I bet it reminds you of driving in Redditch!

I remember First used the excuse of broken windows to cancel evening services in the town.

Saw a 35 branded DD entering Bromsgrove bus station not long ago :shock: .Just got home and the tracker says it's 4726 BU07LHC and first trip was the 10.50 to Longbridge so maybe a breakdown replacement :?: .Also for today atleast the 144 is diverted down Stourbridge Road as Crabtree Lane is blocked by the Chippy for roadworks...although there was no sign of any work actually being done just a big hole in the road :roll:
