KTV-337.jpgKTV 337..a Beeston bound Regent resting on Granby Street...that's Maid Marian Way area....in new money.

1963?..this livery was experimental Deepdene?

Ian.

Ian, yes it was decided to increase the amount of green to below the upper deck window line and add in the green band between decks. Which to my min ,at least, gave the best version of the green and cream livery.

Ian, not a Renown though, an ex East Yorkshire  Motor Services AEC Bridgemaster. The small window in front of the entrance is the give away clue.

Yes, those are doors directly facing the chip shop. Kicked many a football up against the shutters, that's before those swing doors were added, the scabby bit of partition wasn't there either. We used to muck about in there until we got chased out. Down behind those buses out the other end on the left were the scrap bays. We used to furtle out the wheel bearing races, crack them open and use the ball bearings for marbles.

540 -571 were allocated to Trent Bridge from new. As the timings on the West Bridgford services were somewhat generous, they didn't need to be thrashed. All that changed in October 1977, when they were linked with the Basford and Bulwell routes.
