Discussion in 'Buses & Coaches' started by RPI, 21 Jul 2014.
Finally a view of the new "Tinner" leaflet, a timetable is also included:-
Any sightings of the MMCs on other routes yet? I'm not thinking of rail replacement duties.
The blue one's have worked Truro college services a few times but I have not seen the red one's on anything unusual yet.
Having said that there was this unusual RRS destination!
There are college lines allocated for Blue and Red MMCs on those days when there are more available than the PVR
Might I ask what the PVR is for the T1/2? I know I could work it out for myself by going through the timetable, except I don't know whether it's a joint working or separate for each route.
I was late getting back from Hayle. I got as far as Truro, on the return journey, and boarded the pink, white and blue double decker number 27 at 6.35 pm. 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.
Is there a morning time restriction on the £12 first day ticket please?
No there isn't.
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.
Sample of some shots I took whilst out today and yesterday attached.
Excellent photos there
First photo looks familiar, where have I seen one like that before?!
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.
I had a lovely traffic free shot...except my car parked in the layby ruining the shot
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!
