    Does anyone have any idea why the timetable at Kilcreggan bus stop has 3 separate timetables, all for the same route?

    Two of them are for the same company, so as a minimum surely these should be amalgamated? Though there seems no reason why one table can't show both operators anyway (with footnotes as appropriate)

    At a stop in Blandford Dorset there is a flag for First X94 which finished TEN years ago.

    It looks like the three were registered differently (the start dates of the timetables are all different)

    Typical SPT, at my bus stop outside my flat, I've got two timetables for service 43 and the funny thing is that service doesn't even serve that part of Glasgow anymore..

    The early late journeys operated by Garelochhead are SPT tendered runs.
    The other journeys are commercially operated by either Wilson or Garelochhead.
    Full timetable here...

    If you know where to look (and I won't say as some a***hole will go up there and steal it) but there's a former Eastern Counties timetable case with timetables that pre-date First; in fact I think they're pre-GRT ownership of EC!!

    Suffice to say, that makes them a) more than 20 years old and b) EC has long since left the area anyway

    There's a bus stop in Chesham, Bucks, with timetables for routes, and operators, that haven't existed for donkey's years. The phone numbers on them date them to 1995 at the latest (before a "1" was added at the start of area codes). Needless to say, no information for the present day services that run down the road is given...
