But First, The Shell
Then this appeared on First’s web site.
… but with no detail. fbb checked back recently and was greeted by the usual First Bus web site incompetence.
So the whole event faded from the old bloke’s memory – something which happens more easily as the years tick by.
The twittterer who posted it was Alex Hornby (right) and his chum is Ralph Roberts. Together they are the big cheese (Ralph) and the slightly lesser cheese (Alex) at McGills bus. There was a bit of twittering between the gruesome twosome above and the Bearded Bus Beautifier from the Bush …
“Corridors of power”?
Thanks to fbb’s encyclopaedic knowledge of lots of irrelevant stuff, he knew immediately where this very posh corridor could be found. It is, of course, inside Glasgow City Chambers in George Square …
…which “boasts more marble than the Vatican” – or so the authorities claim.
The main differences between Glasgow’s City Chambers and Hogwarts Castle is in the provision of electric light and the lack of moving staircases – and fbb does mean moving staircases, not escalators!
… with excellent graphics and much detail.
There is a list of McGills new services …
… and a simple route diagram.
We are told that each service will run hourly (that’s at least a 25% increase on First) at fixed intervals on Friday night (early Saturday morning) and Saturday night (early Sunday Morning.
McGills emphasises that this is only the start; the company has aspirations to build on the initial batch of five routes.
Sounds like good news for Glaswegians, especially those who enjoy a night out and the occasional wee dram!
The boss of First waxes lyrical about the City’s “Partnership”.
But there is no information on the First Bus web site about which (if any?) night services they will be running.
Similarly First’s partner (McGills) makes no mention of routes to be operated by First!

Remember, the challenge is to identify these railway locations.
