  1. That old depot was delapidated 40 years ago. Knew a Bartons fitter who worked there. In fact he worked for Barton buses all his working life. Still very active at 92 years of age.
  2. Chatting to a driver on a biogas bus the other day reckons with a few passngers on board the the bus wouldn't pull you out of bed.
  3. No reversing was permitted by NCT when routes changed to OMO. Many routes had to be modified to accomadate rhis ruling. I knew the 22 route very well having done many a shift on 1,7 & 22 when they ran from Bulwell & later Bilborough depots. The present service 79 basically covers all those 3 routes combined in to one route these days.
  4. Partly, no protection when you hit a M'way bridge !!
  5. It's reliability that matters, ask any Micra owner.
  6. Actually Nissan Micra 's are quite good. Plenty of other rubbish about.
  7. My brother started his apprenticeship at Brough Superior & then went to work at ROF where he finished his apprenticeship.
  8. Been on Ramipril for years, no problems here !
  9. It will be student flats by then.
  10. My daughter asked me to top up her car's engine oil today. Pouring a couple of pints in to the what I thought was the proper placed turned out to be the back of the engine instead. I realised when she drove off that I had missed the target because there was a pool of oil on the road.!
  11. I've replaced phone batteries a couple of times & the batteries were Chinese knock offs which didn't last long. I stay clear of cheap replacements ever since. My battery replacements were straight forward without dismantling the phone though.
  12. My ex couldn't cook to save her life. True this. When she came home with a new microwave cooker it meant she just burned the food quicker.!
