    Stagecoach South West - Fleet News & Discussion

    I should add that it seems they are only loans and will return to Cambridge at some point (I'm hoping they will still be in Devon at the end of May when I'm down there!)

    TRIVIA: Operators (other than LT) with bespoke vehicle designs

    Indeed, the 'AL' bodywork on Merseyside seemed to be unique, although other 'AL' variants were broadly similar, the 10 acquired with Southport Corporation were to the more common style. Slightly off topic but the first 60 (1236-1295) were actually a cancelled Midland Red order, and MPTE managed...

    Can you take bikes on replacement buses?

    Back at the beginning of 2017 when the Birkenhead North/Central to Liverpool bit of the Merseyrail Wirral line was closed and a large fleet of new double deckers was provided by Arriva to replace the trains, an old Volvo B10B single decker was specially converted as a bike bus, ran on an hourly...

    Odd formations

    Whilst it wouldn't look out of the ordinary at first glance, there was a mixed 507/508 formation on Merseyrail quite a long way back....from memory using cars from 507023 & 508130. Also there was a 4 car 508 formation trialled on Merseyrail, back in the 1980's some time, although whether it was...

    Trivia: Longest Double Decker bus routes in the UK

    Did the Island Coaster back in July 2019, Vectis Blue E400's seemed to be the normal allocation for the route. As for the open top routes, a couple of Presidents (1991/2) and four Scania's (1401-1403/1111) are used. HTH

    London Bus Map

    Similar to the bustimes map, I'd probably use this in conjunction with LVF, good work so far. 1615210234 Maybe the ability to search by fleetnumber, and as with bustimes, click on a route and it showing the location of the buses on that route....I think that's all I'd need if it's possible to...

    Borismaster: the future

    Compulsory Reservations- Poll

    Unfortunately, pointing out that they should have booked a seat (and the usual 'ticket doesn't guarantee a seat') really doesn't placate said passenger(s).
