The whole lot provided a bus every ten minutes round the former tram circle but diverted via newer bits of Stemhousemuir and Carron.
To this we must add the inter-urban 38 which still runs from Edinburgh to Stirling. This added another half hourly frequency between Falkirk and Larbert Cross.
Three changes feature in the area's bus services today. There has been an overall reduction in frequency, the big new Forth Valley Hospital at Larbert has opened and nothing now circles!
Running via Carron Works (as was) we have services 6 and 7. The two together pick up most of the bits of the more frequent circulars as outlined above. The 6 (every 30 minutes) uses part of the Larbert loop of old, and runs via Carronshore.
Service 7 divers via Antonshill at Stenhousemuir ...
Tendered service F11 takes the old tram route between Carron and Stenhousemuir (Carron Dams) ...
In fairness to all concerned, mention should be made of the 5A/5C route (every 20 minutes) ...
The service on the other side of the circle, however, is now only provided by the 38 which IS (correctly!) labelled as "The Royal Route" ...
First Bus (successors to Alexander Midland) have demonstrated some clever re-jigging to ensure that everywhere gets an adequate level of service but with lower frequencies all round. Most former tram users (more likely their descendants!) can get where they want to go but with the added bonus of links to the new Hospital.
When the angels went away from them back into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us.”
So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph and saw the baby lying in the manger. When the shepherds saw him, they told them what the angel had said about the child.
All who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said.
Mary remembered all these things and thought deeply about them.
Could this really be God's plan to "do something" about the bad things in the world?
The shepherds went back, singing praises to God for all they had heard and seen; it had been just as the angel had told them.
