** fbb is well aware that clever modellers use "live frog" points.
With this design power is fed to all rails and you add special switches and mysterious electronics to control which trains spring to life when you turn the knob on the controller. How would that lot survive under 9 inches of snow?
Old news which has only just found its way into fbb's mental ambit.
fbb does not think that the 01 arrival at ASDA sits there for 14 minus before becoming the 15 minutes past back via Houghton Regis.
In December last year, Centrebus started a similar "copy cat" service, but only every 30 minutes round the lollipop. Their map implies the "loopiness" of the service ...
As become zs; Zs become As - easy when you know ...
1456 Z arrival at ASDA becomes the 1458 A back to Luton. Shouldn't the column head be "ZA"?
But why, oh why, do bus companies invent such useful services and then refuse to explain them properly?
For the record, Centrebus also operate route B and E via the busway
Stress Testing Result?
But not quite fbb's stress. In his self appointed role as the Fat Controller of the back yard layout, fbb usually perches on a stool.
First's Fares Farce
Many of the fares were "revised" on Sunday 27th May. Nowadays you don't have fares tables; the ticket machines are updated remotely by wifi, blue tooth or fervent prayer.
Sadly, for Mr F's corporate piggy bank, this message was displayed on these wonder machines when drivers inserted the key as they started their day's duty.
Please be aware that your fare prices will update and go live today if they haven't already done so.
Only they hadn't and they didn't - in some cases not until late afternoon.
What a delight it is to live in such a such a stunning technological world.
