Buses in Nottingham

Recommended Posts

This was the time of the Zone and Collar traffic scheme and the NCT fleet was at an all time high of 494 buses. Hence the need for extra depot space.

Don't know the exact numbers, but 15 or so AEC Renowns and half a dozen of the ETO-C registered Leyland Atlanteans went to Bedlington & District.

207 in the drizzle

I was disappointed when I saw this picture Ian as I was expecting a photo of the Mansfield District Traction 207 service from Mansfield to Bilsthope/Eakring. Not NCT fleet No 207, running route 61 to Clifton Estate, but still a good photo

Thanks Ian, caught that one many times when going fishing in Newark and the 209 to Fiskerton

Proper bus, the picture might have been taken on the stand as it looks like Mansfield Station in the background

You reminded me Fly when you mentioned "Smell nice too" went on a Brylain bus out here from Lincoln to Boston and back, I thought they had a toilet on board judging by the smell of the thing,found out later the bus was used as a school bus first thing in the morning to get the little darlings to school and they just have a pee behind the seats,Only in Lincolnshire
