But the Library is no longer; it is a late library, deceased, passed away; nay demolished. It succumbed to the demolition firm in the autumn of 2015 - AND NOBODY TOLD fbb! In this delightful night-time study (thanks to blog correspondent, Andy) ...
But all three suppliers of information show the library in their timetables for the recent change on September 4th or (in Stagecoach's case) for the current service..
Is it too picky to ask, in passing, why TSY and Stagecoach need to use "Woodseats" twice? Is it just remotely possible that Woodseats Library would be at Woodseats? Remember the quote from Roger French in the current edition of Buses magazine.
The now demolished Library ...
fbb guesses that nobody involved with data management at TSY, First or Stagecoach knows that the Library has gone; but they have three options.
1. Leave well alone. Whatever name is used in the future, local people will still call the stop "Woodseats Library".
2. Change the name. Then change it back again when (IF?) the new Library is built. Doubly confusing.
3. Choose a name which avoids the word "Library". The obvious "Osmaston Road End" won't do because Osmaston Road no longer ends at the bus stop.
And, to make matters more tricky, the footpath has no name!
Woodseats KFC might sound attractive; finger lickin' good, indeed, but "KFC" used to be "Kentucky Fried Chicken" and who knows what crazy brand name might be developed by some equally crazy "brand awareness manager" in the future. Woodseats "Colonel's Cozy Chicken Coop" might not trip easily off the tongue.
And what should GoTimetable Sheffield do - bearing in mind the team's heartfelt desire to do the best for their customers?
In tomorrow's blog, the problem is compounded by deciding what to call the stop on the opposite side of the road.
In the meantime, how's this for a double decker Double Decker.
Somewhere under there is a Borismaster, the new routemaster. Thanks to Northampton correspondent, Alan, for this picture. Also for a superb shot of the Stagecoach FLF in glorious sunshine on service as part of Northampton's Heritage weekend.
And yet another from Alan.
In 1922 the Dennis Motor Lawn Mower was announced. The company was already doing a lot of business with the local authorities so it was a logical step as they were responsible for looking after many acres of public parks. The mowers were innovative too and Dennis were the first motor mower manufacturer to include a differential in the rear roller allowing it to be turned without marking the grass.
Quick to see the benefits Dennis’ brochure claimed the mower could do in 3.5 hours a job that would take two men and a horse 7 hours. By 1925 Windsor Castle was a Dennis Mower user as were many of the fine houses and estates around Great Britain and the Colonies.
Dennis mowers are still produced, but under different ownership. Did you know that Dennis of bus and fire engine fame also manufactured domestic lawn mowers? fbb didn't!
