Bits Of Blogging Business.
1. Apologies for the appalling number of tripeing mistooks in yesterday;s blag. Two things didn't help. Firstly the eyes are giving trouble; and secondly after a tiring day you are simply too crurdled (technical medical term) to think straight. Usually the text is checked at the end of the day - but if the day has been unusually hectic, this process is highly unreliable. On Saturday fbb was trying to complete his GoTimetable Sheffield updates.
2. Apologies for NOT writing about Rennes today as previously announced. Hopefully that post will follow tomorrow.
Caught on Camera At Catcliffe
Really helpful if you have turned up at the stop and are waiting for a bus, innit?
Bigger Bakerloo Beckons
This does not prevent an occasional outburst of pressure from the locals.
And here is a model of the self-same coach offered by Hattons.
Maybe not quite new - more of a clever paint job.
Sam tells us that Hattons have had only 300 blue/grey made without lights and 300 with lights - so here's guessing that they, too, will be sold out before most modellers are tempted buy them.
Sam thinks they are oodles better that similar coaches produced by "another company". (That would be Hornby, Sam!)
fbb will proffer his considered opinion when the vehicle in question arrives.
fbb would bet a substantial sum (maybe a shilling) on the fact that few railway modellers had ever heard of an ancient six wheel coach in BR blue/grey livery. fbb hadn't!
Maybe someone should make a model of the former LNER (that's to old LNER not th modern state-owned upstart!) Buffet Car, also in blue/grey!

Sheffield Changes ... More Of
Front yesterday its half hourly service 83 (still keeping one of its route numbers) running seven days a week has been withdrawn completely by First Bus.
First has also totally withdrawn its 27 from Rotherham to the Crystal Peaks shopping paradise (?).
Pottier than potty!
He even commissioned a report!
