Yes, On Line Leaflet!
When the big companies like First and Stagecoach (but not GoAhead) have, like a short-sighted mole in a paper bag …
Apologies for the poor quality of some of the screen shots – Blogger is being “silly” again”
So here is he X17 leaflet.
followed by thumbnail sketches of the various places you could visit. The leaflet designers could’t find much of a picture for Wirksworth …
There is more to Matlock Bath than the cable cars …
… and Chesterfield offers the iconic twisted spire and the gorgeous indoor and outdoor markets.
Sheffield is rather weakly promoted as a “green” city but with no pictures of its extensive parklands. The wonderful Graves Park is on the X17 route. The Town Hall always looks nice!
… and Barnsley should have a picture of its market!
But where, oh where, is the picture of that market day essential, the pie and pea dinner?
Sadly, the above picture does not adequately capture the dayglo colour of the mushy slushy peas which should, of course, be sloppy like a sauce and the whole lot ought to be served in a bowl and eaten with a spoon!
… and one from Sheffield to Wirksworth.
There were also lists of stops; which would have been better as more detail on the maps with enlargements where necessary,
Unhelpful as a list.
And Two Come Along Together
Another promotional leaflet, this time from First Bus …
It is part of a clutch of service changes from 23td June.
… has simple diagramatic maps …
… and fully detailed stop maps for the whole route.
You are even shown where it stops at the Airport …
… not that there’s any choice!
And you get a full timetable.
There is one panel of “visitor information” …
… but surely there could be more. What about a picture of the Dunmow Flitch, especially as they now have a breeding pair in Colchester Zoo.
Gosh that hurt!!
