I’ve had three of my nine lives. One in the air, one on the road and one at sea. It’s difficult to imagine where the other six are going to be!

Space (the final frontier)

Yes Catfan, the Mercure that’s 100 yards along the road is also full of them too.  Then there’s the Ebers Hotel (was once the respectable ‘Woodville’) that’s apparently a ‘half-way house’, the police are forever there sorting out the residents.  It’s probably very difficult for visitors to Nottingham to find a hotel bed these days.

I suppose this should have been placed in buses thread but as it concerns my day, this is where it's staying. This morning our friendly postman delivered the BEST birthday present I've ever had. It consisted of a parcel containing two NCT buses. One AEC regent, which was the first bus I drove , with the number OTV151, my bus was OTV161. This was out of Bilborough depot, on the 16A route. The other bus is a Daimler fleetline, which was the last type of bus I drove before leaving in 1967. I'm sorry to bore the non-transport officianados but you cannot imagine my delight.

My sincerest million thanks to my benefactor, (you know who you are). It has brought than one tear to my eyes, as you cannot imagine how happy this has made me. Looking at them has taken me right back to the 1960s. From bottom of my heart, once again,

THANK YOU & GOD BLESS.  Barrie.

Fantastic, really pleased for you and what a gesture from your benefactor, there are some great people out there and once in a while they crop up completely out of the blue, brilliant

Thanks Rog, actually, they've not turned out too bad. ( Didn't include you on the dedication cos' I thought you'd be well up on these).

Glad you like 'em.  B.

Pictures bring back memories can still hear that diesel knock while at the bus stop at slab square.

And the brake shoes moaning when they reversed into Pastures avenue Clifton
