    Weird train-related dreams

    I had a dream last night that involved being on a train of some description, and I boarded the train at an unstaffed station with no TVM and I pressed a button on the side of my seat, and out of the arm rest came a 'promise to pay' voucher.

    Buses and the coronavirus

    In Scunthorpe, Stagecoach have some Wright Eclipses, without anti attack screens, apparently one reason why they are rarely seen on the roads in the evening!

    Buses and the coronavirus

This would leave many people stranded, if they catch long distance buses, for example...
