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    

Old Nottingham City Transport Single Decker

Old Market Square , Nottingham c1960s

Many moons ago I remember my uncle, who was a driver on the Brown and Cream West Bridgford  buses, telling  me that depending on how the conductor rang the bell gave instructions to the driver.  1 ring was "Stop" - 2 rings was "Go" and 3 rings was "Do Not Stop".

Ex Bilb' Depot bus plying the 1 7 22 route ! Very fast for an old 'un !

402 always had a reputation has a flyer, right from when she was allocated to Trent Bridge when new in 1964. If she was accidentally swapped with a Bulwell failure on 43s, Trent Bridge ensured she was swapped back again asap.

Finney electric was the 5 minute wonder from WB who tried to jump on the free for all bus deregulation bandwagon in '86 by setting up his own bus company & failed miserably & later had his arse kicked big style by the then Traffic Commissioners.

Never heard of them Mick..i see he tried to copy UDC colours.

Anymore info please?

Ian.

That bloke should never have been allowed to operate a bus service in the first place. He was just a bus "Looney" who thought he knew & could do it all, but he couldn't !

"  He bought the vehicles from a Barnsley scrapyard" just about sums it up !

Finney's used two ex NCT Regent Vs, the second one was 273 shown at the top of this page on 77s (probably the only time ever a Regent V was used on these services). His two other vehicles were ex London Transport AEC Swifts, I think one of them was LT fleetnumber SMS399.
