‘Scene’ A Bit Late in the Day on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

When I downloaded the images that Stuart Montgomery had sent me of the ‘Lothian Buses’ Volvo B8RLE / Alexander Dennis Ltd. Enviro 400XLB’s (See blog posted16/03/2019) I did not realise at the time that I had missed another image.

 

For completeness sake, it is reproduced here. ‘Better Late than Never’!

‘Scene’ on the Streets of Edinburgh on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

 

Many of my regular reders will recall the blog I posted on 18/01/2019 highlighting the images of fellow enthusiast ‘Stuart Montgomery’ who is one of ‘Lothian Buses’ voluntary photographers.

 

His work can be found at 

 

https://www.flickr.com/photos/stuart_montgomery/albums

 

This past week or so he has been out recording the entry of ‘Lothian Buses’ new Alexander Enviro 400XLB bodied Volvo B8RLE’s into service and he has graciously allowed me to post these images for which I am most grateful.

 

Enjoy !

‘Scene’ in Sheffield. ‘Buses for Sheffield’, ‘Stagecoach Yorkshire’ on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

‘Travel South Yorkshire’ have introduced the ‘Buses for Sheffield’ scheme which sees a voluntary partnership between the operators in the City to improve bus travel across the City. 

 

The slogan for the partnership is ‘One City. One service’.

 

Curious to see how this scheme might be progressing, I ventured forth, camera in hand! 

 

The major operators in Sheffield are ‘First South Yorkshire’ and 

‘Stagecoach Yorkshire’.

 

They both appear to be displaying ‘Buses for Sheffield’ and ‘One City. One service’, logos superimposed on the standard fleet livery so that no one is in any doubt as to who owns the buses.

 

This is different to London and the West Midlands where the livery is or will be uniform across all operators.

 

I did not see any buses belonging to other operators in the City displaying the same logos.

 

That’s not to say that they don’t display the logos, only that I did not see them.

 

To see ‘Scene’ in Sheffield. ‘Buses for Sheffield’, ‘First South Yorkshire’, go to blog published 11/03/2019.

‘the Mickleover’ E20D’s have appeared before on my blog but  since I last had a ride on one they have had a new route display fitted for the benefit of passengers which I think is excellent.

 

It gives the final destination with the arrival time together with the next 3 stops. The current time is displayed and it is co-ordinated with a verbal announcement.

 

The best of its kind that I have seen!
