Bits And Pieces
Having spent a fair bit of time last week preparing for GoTimetable change using dodgy data, fbb decided to dedicate yesterday morning to creating the next quiz and Bible note leaflet for the upcoming afternoon tea meetings in November. Double disaster struck. A memory stick-load of illustrations had been inadvertently deleted before use due to old age and incompetence - and over an hour's preparation was lost in a similar piece of stupidity. (fbb rebooted the computer and then remembered he had not saved his work!)
Guess the theme for the leaflet!
So the planned "loopy" blog was a keyboard too far for a frustrated and exhausted old codger. So, "Bits and Pieces" it is.
Mail Train - Alternative Model
... where goods can be push-loaded on to the wagon.
fbb feels that the excitement of this model might pall after a few plays. But it might be a good introduction to model railways for a tiny!
New Trains For Brum
The British Rail Class 730 Aventra is a type of electric multiple unit being built by Bombardier Transportation for West Midlands Trains. Two separate batches of the fleet will be built; 36 three-car units are intended to be operated on West Midlands Railway's suburban services, primarily the Cross-City Line, and 45 five-car units are intended to be operated on London Northwestern Railway's suburban and long-distance services.
They will be the first train of the Aventra family to feature end gangways.
More New Buses For Sanders
Sanders Coaches Ltd is a 100% family owned Company formed in 1975 by Norman and Gladys Sanders as a small 5 vehicle local coach operation based in Holt, North Norfolk. Now owned by their sons Paul and Charles Sanders the fleet totals 85 and is split between local bus and Coach Charter Operation.
We are very proud to be a 100% Norfolk based Company serving Norwich and Norfolk people and providing over 120 jobs to our local community and, of course, also enjoying the wonderful experience of living in this beautiful and amazing part of the Country.
Facilities are limted - no, actually, they are non existent! Entrance to platform 2 is from the road overbridge ...
It was a twittered picture that aroused fbb's interest. Apparently this is still there!
