‘Scene’ with ‘East Yorkshire Motor Services’ (EYMS). EYC registrations. on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

At the time of publication of this blog, it has just been announced that ‘EYMS’ is to become a part of the ‘Go-Ahead’ group. 

 

I am sorry to see them go as an independent operator but I am sure from having observed all the major groups for many years that this is a good decision.

 

I wish all at ‘East Yorkshire’ well for the future.

 

I have been a follower of ‘East Yorkshire Motor Services’ for many years and I have always believed that the ‘EYC’ registrations indicated vehicles working for the ‘East Yorkshire Coaches’ unit. 

 

Normally painted in cream and light blue there is at least one bus that does not quite fit in !!! (see below).

 

Most of these images were taken at ‘EYMS’ depot on Anlaby Road in Hull on a PSV Circle organised visit.

This is the bus mentioned earlier that doesn’t seem to fit however it is fitted with coach seats and other ‘luxury’ fitments so maybe it does. 

 

A pity it’s not in the coaching livery though, it would look magnificent !

‘Scene’ in Scarborough once more part 2 on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

On the 15th. of July 2018, I published what has turned out to be part 1 of a blog regarding YY18 TMU. A red double decker I had seen on test in Scarborough.

 

At that time I knew little about it and asked for anyone who had further information to get in touch.

 

On the 26th. of July I received an Email advising the operator and fleet number.

 

I checked this as far as I could and found that the website I was checking on gave a different registration.

 

I continued checking elsewhere and yesterday found that the information I had received on the 26th. was correct.

 

So as promised in part 1 of this ‘saga’,

 

I gratefully thank my correspondent of that date ‘Busoccultation’ for the information that he or she or maybe they provided.

 

Thank You.

 

Here are the full and I believe the correct details.

It has been beautifully restored and painted in red, white (or cream) and black.

 

A modern waiting room structure has been provided which is painted in grey and blue.

 

Would it not look a lot better if it could have painted to match the rest its surroundings?

‘Scene’ in Nottingham recently on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

Between 2011 and 2014 ‘trentbarton’ (tb) built up a fleet of Optare Versa’s totalling 50 in number.

 

The first 5 registered YJ11 ENC/E/F/H and K numbered No’s 801 to 805 were put to work on the My 15 service which at that time ran between Ilkeston and Long Eaton.

 

The first of this batch has recently emerged from the paintshop carrying ‘tb’s spare bus livery of dark red and is seen on a ‘rainbowone’ service.

‘Scene’ in Derby once more part 2 on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

I normally pace myself to produce eight blogs a month. However I was in Derby last Thursday when this selection turned up in the space of half an hour or so and I thought it sufficiently interesting and newsworthy to publish it now in two parts.

 

For part 1 see blog posted 28/07/2018.

 

According to the driver this bus was working on ‘Rail Replacement Services’  from Derby railway station which is undergoing major refurbishment work which I believe will last until October 2018.

‘Scene’ in Derby once more part 1 on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

I normally pace myself to produce eight blogs a month. However I was in Derby when this selection turned up in the space of half an hour or so and I thought it sufficiently interesting and newsworthy to publish it now in two parts.

 

I should explain that Derby has two routes with 38 in the number.

 

Part 1 is all about the 38’s. 

 

‘ARRIVA’s service 38 serves Stenson Fields from Derby and is branded ‘Sapphire 38’.

 

The X38 serves Burton on Trent from Derby. A joint route with ‘ARRIVA’ and ‘trentbarton’ that runs via a long stretch of the A38.

 

The current rolling stock on the ‘Sapphire 38’ are ‘Alexander Dennis Ltd’. (ADL) E40D’s with ‘ADL’ Enviro 400 bodies.

 

Today I saw an addition.

Next to turn up was an ‘ARRIVA’ VDL SB200/Wright wearing X38 branding. 

 

This was unusual because the X38 does not normally operate from the bus station.

 

All was explained when it departed on service 38 to Stenson Fields.

When I left the bus I was travelling on at the Derby Royal Hospital, the bus behind was an (ADL) ‘E40D’ with an ‘ADL’ Enviro 400 body.

 

Although carrying branding for the ARRIVA 38 to Stenson Fields, it was as its indicator shows working a service on the X38 to Burton.

 

As I have said before, Derby never disappoints.
