Old Nottingham City Transport Single Decker

Looks like the word & song players have woke up bored to death, here have something Nottingham.  Have a good day, try & get yourselves outside today, it's later than you think    

Just a heads up for Catfan in case he would like a bus to play with. John Pye have a sale next week and it includes a couple of 1993 Leyland Olympia 77 seaters and a 1950 Dennis Lancet 39 seater. The Lancet would be ideal for you to take the Nottsalgia gang out on a mystery tour :biggrin:

Mick, Trent had Leyland Olympians whilst they were still part of the National Bus Company. Once they were privatised via a MBO, Trent's next double deckers were Volvo Citybuses, with underfloor mid-engines. These were the same chassis that NCT had on their fleet numbers 301-346, and also the experimental pair 398/399. Northampton Transport also had a sizeable fleet of these and they were very well liked by the local drivers.

kTV 537. Near the 3 Horseshoes in

I remember those trolley buses parked there with a chock (block of triangular shaped wood) under the front drivers side wheel to stop the bus rolling down the hill. Was the chock on a chain or piece of string? can't quite remember that small detail
