    STO bus spottings

    Bikes are for cycling, not carrying on buses....I think cyclists should be charged for carrying a bike on a bus, after all they delay all the other passengers putting their bike on and off the rack.

    Last chance or they are going in the recyling tonight
  7. I have the last couple of years copies of the monthly UK Buses Magazine. They are free to anyone that wants them although you have to pick them up from my home. PM’s only to arrange pick up, if they don’t go in the next few days they will go in the recycling.

    GOA Special Spottings

    There are blinds were the windows were that can be pulled down in bad weather. I suspect there are probably structural reasons why the roof couldn't have been removed. The Red Astromega has been running around for a couple of weeks, its definitely painted, not wrapped, I see it every day. Its possible that the blue one reported earlier was repainted fairly quickly. Its possible that there are two and the blue one is now being prepared for service, I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.
  9. It wasn’t a swap, it was a trade in as part of the total cost.
  10. Not all of them are though.

    Invero Light Rebuild Project

    Why do you think they should have gone for the Excelsior over Nova, is it a better vehicle? The 1997 Nova NLFS is a very different bus to a 2018/19 model
