    I think even the standard fleet W/X reg Tridents had tables when new back in 2000. Most likely they were removed as they were converted to single door?

    The rest of the tweet states it's just a high school art project and there's no intention of changing the moquette. They do all look like the sort of thing youd see on a bus though!

    Alex's mostly Scottish roaming

    Thank for all the kind words folks, it was a good day :) Re: the Grand Tour ticket, I didn't know it existed until I stumbled across it in Inverness with the other half last month. It looks like a really ince idea, and if it's still in existance in years to come I might have to persuade myself...

    Alex's mostly Scottish roaming

    Tuesday 7th January 2020 What better way to use my new-found free time to type up a couple of trip reports from earlier this year that I didn’t do at the time. I've got a few of these in the bag and my first one comes from earlier this year on my January big-bash which was Tuesday 7th, and...

    My last ever All-Line-Rover, Summer 2018

    A very good trip there, certainly a lot of variety! Countless things you couldn't do these days as well. Did you do everything you wanted to?

    Camera Recommendations

    Thanks for the replies folks, I'll bear those recommendations in mind. I'm also intrigued by the Canon Powershot range, if anyone has any experiences, good or bad!

    Camera Recommendations

    Afternoon. I hope social distancing isn't taking too much of a toll on you. I was looking through my old photos from previous trips the other day and I have come to the conclusion that whilst my camera phone produces fine quality photos, I think I'd like to start using a proper camera. Anyone...

    The 30 is going there every half hour from Town, hourly from the Musselburgh direction.

    All line Rover - when the dust settles

    Depends what sort of thing you're after really. Masses of haulage? Mega mileage? New places? There are quite a few ALR trip reports on the forum, some more recent than others. Have a read and borrow some ideas.

    Don't think they're new screens, just the same Mobitec ones with the writing in a different font. A couple of the ADL ex-hybrids look similar.

    Indeed, we've all pretty much ground to a halt. We'll just need to have really exuberant summer's to make up for it! :lol:

    Perhaps that was a bad choice of photo. This one shows the lower gold strip a little better. https://www.flickr.com/photos/lothian_buses/49631199592/in/album-72157700756320622/ Edit: posted at the same time!

    Can't see any photos of the other two on Flickr, but 389 must have had it applied at the depot upon its return as seen here.

    Emergency last thing in the cupboard meal, and other culinary adventures under confinement

    There's a carton of UHT milk in the back of my cupboard that was "gifted" to me by my Granny when I left home a year and a half ago. Probably that, or the tin of spam that came with it. (Obviously I appreciate the sentiment, but I'm never going to use those two particular items)

    Emergency last thing in the cupboard meal, and other culinary adventures under confinement

    When poaching eggs (assuming you are lucky enough to posess some) swirl the water to create a whirlpool, and gently release the egg into the water. Add a splash of white vinegar if you wish. Not sure what it does but the Mrs hasn't complained yet!

    Coldest UK railway station

    I would happily agree on Darlington! I find Dundee also to be particularly chilly.
