The Law of Unintended Consequences
But here is an extract from First Bus' Bristol staff newsletter - concerning the collapse of Wright Bus.
Secret Sheffield Stagecoach?
Also from Roy, a newly delivered Stagecoach single decker in Sheffield.
Or is it? It, and a few chums, were mysteriously delivered without and Stagecoach name or logos.
British Railways Blue?
Another oddity which fbb has never seen documented before.
The Potential Passing of Pacers?
Just a reminder of where it all began ...
And There's More ...
Rebel Town Dream Come True
fbb was chuntering round Colyton, just a few country miles from sunny Seaton, when he really thought he was dreaming. Near to the wonderful lantern-towered church is the Market Place and one of the emporia therein is a little shop called, imaginatively ...

PTE Paint-job Promotes Pulchritude
"The lads" from South Yorkshire PTE have been enhancing the public transport experience for the delight-deprived denizens of various districts of the city.

Being the inveterate rebel that he is, fbb moved the offending "affiche" so that it only obscured the unnecessarily duplicate "route lines" above.
You have to have two identical route line diagrams because there are two service 120s. They are identical from the stop onwards with Stagecoach operating half the evening and Sunday service. So the damage to the PTEs publicity machine would not be serious.
No paint was harmed in making this blog.
Tomorrow, a surprising adventure.
