  1. Nottingham Festival 1970

    By a strange coincidence, I had to collect a train driver today, He works out of Immingham, and was taking a load of coal to Toton depot, to be delivered to Radcliffe power station tomorrow. His train was stopped, near to market rasen, due to another train having a brake problem. The other train was delivering fuel to Kingsbury. So a nice trip from Toton, to Wickenby and Immingham, in the sunshine.
  2. Nottingham Hauliers

    I bet they wish that all the lorries were that clean nowadays. I have never seen an 8 wheel tipper that clean.
  3. Buses in Nottingham

    I saw NCT666 at Nuthall last week, it looked to be part of a transport museum. Was 666 the first digital display?
  4. Trinity square

    Not quite Trinity Square, but near enough. Demolition of Victoria Station.
  5. Launder Terrace, Nottingham

    Not sure what the school was. It is the one marked on the map, as inft sch.
  6. Launder Terrace, Nottingham

    On a map that I have the infant school is marked - Miss Ch. so it was possibly a chapel before the school. map is dated 1880
  7. Dunkirk - old and new

    Most of the banger and stockcar drivers that used to race at Long eaton stadium used Coates to make or alter seat belts into a full race harness.
  8. Alfreton Road

    There is a new pub opening at the top of alfreton road, in the old bank - fancy dress shop. It should have opened last week, but there must be a delay.
  9. Alfreton Road

    Yes that is the 1, if you look on google streetview you can still see the sign, which looks quite ornamental.
  10. Alfreton Road

    The next pub down on that side of the road would have been the windmill, which is quite a long way down and after the forest road junction.
  11. Alfreton Road

    That would be the rose and crown. Converted into flats probably 15 years ago.
  12. Arkwright Street

    The rover that was before the sd1 I think it was the p6 had an aluminium bonnet and boot, if only all the panels were alloy, the rear wings used to rust away terrible.
  13. Bio Gas buses

    Going off on a slight tangent, I saw 1 of the medi link electric buses on the back of a recovery truck yesterday. It was travelling along the ring road heading north. The buses are not that old, and don't cover many miles, as they only run 5 days a week.
  14. More trolley buses:

    Theres some old buses and trolleybuses in this film from 1951. I found this on a Glasgow website.
  15. Photobucket.

    On another forum that I am on, someone mentions a way of getting photobucket photos back. I have no idea if this works, but I will include a link to the article.
