‘Scene’ in Kings Lynn, ‘Stagecoach Group’ on ‘Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk

Unusally for ‘Stagecoach’, ‘NG’ were allowed to continue with their own livery and titling. Since then, ‘NG’s livery has morphed into a scheme that uses some of the earlier livery colours applied in a distinctly ‘Stagecoach’ style.

 

One previous ‘NG’ feature, that of naming buses appears to be in decline. A shame really, because it gave the buses an extra bit of character.

Previously operated by ‘Stagecoach in London’. The red paint it wore then can still be seen on the nearside front corner of the upper deck where its current silver paint has rubbed off.

The ‘Coasthopper’ service is a lengthy route that runs from Kings Lynn to terminate in Cromer. A distance of approximately 60 miles that is a superb way of visiting the North Norfolk Coast.

‘Scene’ at the Statfold Barn Railway (SBR) on ‘Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk

The ‘SBR’ is a privately owned, primarily narrow gauge railway set in a country location to the South of Burton on Trent and to the East of Tamworth.

 

There are open days during the year for which an invitation must be requested from the SBR if you intend visiting.

 

The rule is strictly NO INVITE, NO ACCESS. After that, for the price of £10 pounds (2016 price) car parking is free and access to virtually all areas is permitted. Also included is the ability to ride on as many trains as are available (and there are many).

 

The ‘main line’ is known as the ‘Field Railway’ which comprises a lengthy run out and back from the purpose built station.

 

On the day that I was there, there were over a dozen loco’s in use with many trains either double headed or topped and tailed.

 

All in all an exceptional day out for the cost.

 

Should you get the chance to go, take it.

‘Scene’ in the Pink in Nottingham on ‘Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

When ‘trentbarton’ put their new Alexander Dennis Ltd. E20D’s into service last year on ‘the mickleover’. Nobody thought for a minute that they had seen the last of the Volvo B7RLE’s/Wright single deck buses that were withdrawn as a consequence.

 

Some have migrated East to Nottingham where, with a new coat of paint and suitably re-branded they are now linking Nottingham to Keyworth. 

 

The service, previously known as ‘the keyworth connection’ is now simply ‘the keyworth’.

‘Scene’ in Nottingham. Gas Powered Double Deckers on ‘Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk

It seems quite a while since the fleet of gas powered double deckers were introduced to the citizens of Nottingham on a rain soaked Parliament Square back in May.

 

A sunny start to July seems to have brought them out and here some of them are.

‘Scene’ in Buxton’ on ‘Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

It has been somewhile since I last featured the Derbyshire town of Buxton so I thought that a re visit was overdue.

I am always on the lookout for something ‘different’ and this certainly fits the bill.

 

Clearly derived from a milk float type vehicle and cleverly styled to imply an upper deck. This unusual ‘bus’ has a surprising turn of speed.

on ‘Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk

 

When ‘trentbarton’ (tb) and ‘Centrebus’ (Cb) jointly formed ‘High Peak Buses’ (HPB), ‘tb’ transferred a number of vehicles to the joint operation.

 

Interestingly retaining its ‘tb’ fleet number, this was one such.

For many years the ‘transpeak’ service and its forerunners were a ‘tb’ operation. 

 

At the time of the founding of ‘HPB’ the service was transferred to the new company.
