Daftness in Dorset
Reducing the 99 (aka 96) to a less usable service can only speed its ultimate demise. A couple of days ago, correspondent Clive summarised the county's potty policy in an irrelevant note on an fbb blog about trams in Paris.
Effectively Electrical Energy Expired
Long term readers will remember that when young Archie Fearnley visited fbb's back-yard model railway, fbb cleaned the track punctiliously, plugged in the doo-dah and not a thing happened. Archie was less upset than his host and well placated by a visit to Pecorama.
Undaunted by his disappointment, fbb started rewiring the layout. Upon completion of this project, he plugged in the doo-dah and ...

Silly; but who cares?

And the route numbers for Cornwall services (no longer available in Somerset!) taken over from Stagecoach are now correct - possibly.
But try looking at the lowest of the 95s. It says "Wadebridge - Camelford - Bude". Now try finding times for a journey between Wadebridge and Bude.
But you can go to ...

Oh dear. Which St Teath stop do I ask for
if I'm coming from Wadebridge?
As a bus timetable app it is APPALLING.
