The driver diverted to the depot and, while reversing and turning accidentally beached it on stones at the entrance with one wheel spinning free. A brilliant mechanic managed to unbeach it, got water for the engine and we were on our way, only about 45 minutes late.

The last journey to Falmouth on the 2 this afternoon was being worked by a blue U-liveried MMC: as I only saw it broadside-on I can't identify which one.

I hadn't even noticed the similarity to your photo, I'm glad it's a different bus! I was driving down the hill towards roseworthy and saw it on the other side of the valley so pulled into the layby to wait for it. A location I've used several times.

It's a good location that I have used several times as well. I also checked to see if it was the same bus, ha ha!

I've a few other photos there on my Flickr and also at other identical locations to you. Father in law owns some property just off the crossroads at the top which I'm working on at the moment due to him going to care.

The issues I seem to get lately when trying to get decent photo's is the amount of traffic in some places as well as pedestrians.

When the MMC's started I tried to get some photo's of them with the Christmas decorations in Camborne as a backdrop. I was thwarted every time by passing vehicles, parked cars and curious people out walking to and from the pub!

Next Christmas I'll get up very early in the morning.

May I suggest Hayle Retail Park, where you are able to photograph 8bph, but you could get run over in the process of getting the photo due to lack of a footpath opposite the stop!
