Improved Bus Service – Yes, Really!
Ignoring schoolday buses, there were just four journeys Monday to Saturday in Summer and …
… and utterly pathetic offering of not quite two in the Winter. This was substantially inferior to the withdrawn Stagecoach 9A which was hourly Monday to Saturday and two hourly on Sunday.
… to FIVE journeys, but for the Winter, things are much much better …
… with a doubling of the frequency, So more folk will be able to enjoy the views as the bus descends into Lyme Regis. (This one is ascending from …)
Still no Sunday service, though.
The GoAhead boss made the usual and expected comments.
Pulhams operate a variety of rural services, notably the 801 …

For the full list refer to their web site.

There are extensive coaching interests as well.
They can cater for large or very small parties!

Back in the day, Hornby Dublo made a similar wagon …
… as did Trix …
… and Triang.
There may have been similar wagons in grey and occasionally with a different railway company lettering. But once British Railways happened, you would get a brown open wagon or a grey open wagon and that was your lot.
That’s 32 different versions of one simple 8 plank Southern Railway wagon. The odd duplicate may appear in the above paste-up as fbb cannot count! Ñ The differences may be small (e.g. wagon number) but they are different.
If you want a cheap (cheaper?) seven planker, fbb recommends Oxford Rail …
fbb has been unable to identity the actual street location, so the city of operation will do. One small clue – the tram is red.
Just “plonked” priot to painting the granite retaining wall. But why has fbb glued window frames on the railings?
Weird or what?
