Bank Holiday Quiz Part 2

But First - Wonderful Woking

Many thanks to correspondent Peter for digging up dates for Heritage Open Days at the superb Woking Electrics Control Room.

And Depressing Dronfield

There, in all its glory, is the bus stop on Wreakes Lane, Dronfield, just on the Sheffield side of the Civic Centre and ideal for an enjoyable bit of retail anguish at Sainsbury's. As you can see, the stop is provided with a luxury shelter and a fine bus stop flag.
The flag is particularly helpful, NOT.
Helpfully it shows operator Mainline, the brand of the South Yorkshire PTE management buy-out. It was sold to First Bus in 1995; so the label is roughly 27 years wrong. So no tush for whoever should be keeping things up to date.

Service 89 has not run for many years, but neither fbb nor correspondent Andrew can remember how many!

But, joyfully, there is an electronic display board inside the shelter.
Andrew took the photos on Sunday last, commenting on the filthy nature of the shelter generally. He was also amused by the electronics.
Service 15?
Ah, yes; that doesn't run on Sundays hence the display on Sunday!

It is a disgraceful advert for public transport - AND TOTALLY INEXCUSABLE!
