‘Scene’ In London 2 on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

Friend Peter Rose recently spent some time in Muswell Hill in North London where on a very sunny day he captured these images.

 

As usual, they are reproduced here with his permission and my thanks.

 

Muswell Hill was rated recently as being one of the top five suburbs in which to live in the capital which is reflected in the surroundings of the buses.

‘Scene’ in Leicester, ‘First Leicester’ Single Deckers on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

I had not been to Leicester for some years but I had read that the rebuilding of St. Margaret’s Bus Station had been completed so I thought another visit was due.

 

The new bus station has been rebuilt virtually following the original’s footprint.

 

The building is new and it would appear to be equipped with all the facilities  I would expect.

 

The only major change, as far as I could see, is that buses can now leave the bus station directly onto the A594 Burleys Way.

 

A significant saving of both time and fuel.

 

Friend Peter Rose joined me for the day and whilst we were attracted initially by the new St. Margaret’s, we spent most of our time at the nearby Haymarket Bus Station.

‘Scene’ at Showbus 2022 A Delectation of Double Deckers 1 on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

I have attended a number of SHOWBUS events over the years but this was the first time I had attended one at the Hertfordshire County Showgound.

 

The 50th. show and, if we are to believe what we read, the last.

 

It would be a great pity if the reputation the SHOWBUS name has built up over the years were to be lost but we shall have to wait and see.

In the early 1970s. Leyland had mopped up UK based bus building competitors AEC and Daimler.

 

It was almost a Leyland monopoly.

 

Other manufactures associated with the bus industry decided to make a bid for a share of the business.

 

Volvo via the Ailsa, MCW’s Metropolitan with the Scania underframe and Bristol / Eastern Coach Works who were better known for the Lodekka all entered the competition with the VR.

 

If my memory is correct, this bus was one of five of its type that were purchased for assessment by the BET Federation group in 1975.

 

MCW’s Scania / MCW Metropolitan (5 ordered), and Bristol’s VR / ECW (7 ordered) made up the balance of the competition.

 

All went to ‘M&D’ with a view to bulk orders being placed for whichever proved the most successful.

 

The Bristol being the eventual winner with several thousands being produced.

Now 30 years old and still in my view one of the most attractive double deck bodies ever built

 

The design was ahead of its time being of integral construction which probably cost it in terms of sales.

‘Scene’ at the Royal International Air Tattoo 2022 Jet Trainers on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’

It was always my intention when I named my blog ‘railsroadsrunways’ nine years ago to give as even a spread of coverage as was possible to the three forms of transport.

 

Unfortunately, of late, for various reasons, the ‘runways’ element has been neglected.

 

The increases in security at military bases, the loss of shows at RAF Waddington and Scampton. The general run down of the numbers of military aircraft which, as a result of the Ukraine war, might see an upsurge in spending.

 

Then there has been the Covid pandemic which removed the civil airliner coverage almost overnight.

 

The ‘Royal International Air Tattoo’ started life 50 years ago as simply the ‘International Air Tattoo’ and during that time, most of the events have taken place at ‘RAF Fairford’ in Gloucestershire.

 

The use of ‘RAF’ in the name of the base is a bit of a misnomer because it is the ‘United States Air Force’ who are the resident operator.

 

Usually with bombers from either the B1, B2 or B52 fleets together with their air refuelling tanker support.

 

The ‘fashion’ for jet trainers over the years has varied from side by side seating for the trainee and instructor to them being seated in tandem.

 

The tandem seating arrangement is the current standard but we start with two classic British side by side trainers.

 

XE 688 ‘Hawker Hunter Aviation Ltd’. (HHA).

Hawker Hunter T.72 

on Dennis Basford’s railsroadsrunways.blogspot.co.uk’ 

 

The original XE688, an F4 dated from 1955 was written off after an accident in 1957.

 

The current XE688 was built from an assortment of parts both new and re-cycled, including parts from the original XE 688 in the 1970s. 

 

Sold to the ‘Chilean Air Force’ as J-736 who in turn sold it on to Brazilian airframer ‘Embraer’ who used it as a chase plane registered PP-XHH.

 

It returned to ‘HHA’ in the UK in 2018.

 

To those readers/viewers interested, ‘Hawker Hunter Aviation Ltd’. are an interesting company operating a variety of legacy jet aircraft. Worth a Google!

I have attended a number of SHOWBUS events over the years but this was the first time I had attended one at the Hertfordshire County Showgound.

It would be a great pity if the reputation the SHOWBUS name has built up over the years were to be lost but we shall have to wait and see.

 

It is hard to believe that buses built before the Second World War are still around and able to visit an event 83 years after the war had started.

 

It speaks volumes for the durability of the design and construction in the first place and even more volumes for the men and women who work to keep these buses in the condition they are.
