A couple of blasts from the past. The green bus is modern but done up in the Salford City Transport livery. No ads on the side. Salford didn't approve of ads. The red bus is a 1966 Manchester cooperation Transport bus out of hthe bus museum in the old Queens Road depot.

Hello again, again.

I have had a lot of comments re drivers hours. I can only suggest you have a look on site to see exactly what our beloved government say on the matter. If you are still having problems then have a word with your union.

As for driving over hours because of heavy traffic, well this is OK provided it doesn't happen too often, in my opinion more that once every 3 months would be too often. If it does then the schedules need looking at. Seriously.

No I don't think an overnight break of 8 and half hours is long enough but last time I looked that was the minimum.

Good luck and stay safe out there.

PS I have not been getting your comments recently but I have made an adjustment to the settings so I should get an email when anyone leaves a comment. Thanks.

Hello, long time no see.

It will soon be the longest day, again. Sadly though, I won't be driving a bus anytime soon.

I did notice that The Herald Express, our local paper, did use one of my photos recently to illustrate a story. I sent them the photo after they used a Stagecoach bus done up in the pre 2000 livery, very old fashioned.

The photo was taken on Paignton Green at some show or other.

Bye for now.

Been away for over a year. Not been bus driving so not much to write about.

Actually that's not strictly true, but someone needs to use this computer. I shall try again in a while.
