On the 29A/29X things get even better with a few triangles to add to the fun."
fbb noted that a nice touch here is with the use of 29A. There is no 29, of course.
The highlight was a whole page of journeys from Coalville. There are 17 on the page and only one doesn't have some sort of note. A magnificent achievement!"
"And did you notice," Connie continued, "the last line on the 27 timetable above. All blanks! In fact we have managed to show only two journeys all day as running to Markfield Road."
Gasps of admiration from the crowd.
"In fact they ALL go to Markfield Road! How delightful is that?"
The audience erupts into gales of laughter and applause.
When the approbation quietens down, Connie pronounced even more delicious features of this prize-winning leaflet. "Look at the repeat pattern on the 29A/29X timetable." fbb did, obediently.
xx14 (it is limited stop) whilst the 29A does not stop there despite NOT being Limited Stop.
Connie was now shrieking with exuberant joy. "All buses stop at County Hall," she cried with tears running down her cheeks.
"My team have done a fine job on Sunday," she added ...
More gasps of admiration. "But I have left the best bit till the last. Here is the WHOLE Sunday timetable from Leicester to Coalville."
Here are Connie's questions for our blog readers to attempt to answer.
1. Is there a 2155 from Leicester?
2. When is the last through bus to Burton upon Trent?
3. Explain the 34* time against "Amazon"!
There was a mischievous glint in madame speaker's eye and a few clever listeners grabbed their leaflet to see if anything was printed thereupon to help. Hooray, there was.
The afternoon concluded with the presentations of the actual award.
It was a pleasure for fbb to be present at such an enjoyable and informative event.
AWard For Unbelievable Leaflet
Heavy philosophy here!
This is Lucas Cranach:-
Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472 to 1553) was a German Renaissance painter and printmaker in woodcut and engraving. He was court painter to the Electors of Saxony for most of his career. He lived at the time of the Reformation, whose cause he embraced with enthusiasm, becoming a close friend of Martin Luther. He also painted religious subjects,
Here is his literal view of The Garden of Eden. Very "Black Forest".
God created Man out of the "dust of the earth" ...
But is there some sense beyond the stylised anthropomorphic (i.e. giving an idea human form) artistry?
Maybe there is.
