DescriptionDriver Stan Foxall loads passengers for a Service 303 to Worcester.
Many Leyland Nationals including, it would seem, this one did not have a “zero” on the centre number track of the destination display. Hence, this vehicle is showing service number “3C3” to Worcester. This problem was never addressed by Midland Red West and the occasional National from Worcester depot could still be seen operating a service “3-3” in the late 1990s. Driver Foxall joined BMMO at Worcester depot in the early 1950s and later became a coach tour driver. He retired from Midland Red West in the early 1990s and sadly passed away in 2014.
