That’s odd. I can’t change any safesearch settings on the mobile version of Flickr so I’ll try and remember to look at it tomorrow. They should all be set to ‘Moderate’ or ‘Safe’ anyway.

TYD 911W, from memory, is a relatively unusual PSU3F/5R model... 11m chassis with a 6-speed manual 'box.

Talking of LDV Convoys...

Does anyone know the unladen weight of an ‘02 15-seater minibus?

I’ve been asked to move one, but I think it’s probably too heavy for my trailer.

It’s plated weight is 3850kg if that helps.

Cheers.

The long wheelbase van was near enough 2 tonnes so a minibus must be heading on toward 2.5t, although this dealer reckons it's only 2.2t.

Pictures properly inserted into previous post. And a few more:

 

Moar Lynx Effect:

G38YHJ & H130LPU, Leyland Lynx by Scott Todd-Howard, on Flickr

 

Former Crosville Cymru G38 YHJ was mine at the time and lived at Tanat's Pentrefelin depot. H130 LPU was also ex-Crosville Cymru and was probably the best Lynx at Tanat - it went well and didn't rattle too badly. 

 

 

46125373095_e0620ffff8_c.jpg

H150GGS, Leyland Olympian/Northern Counties by Scott Todd-Howard, on Flickr

 

H150 GGS is seen mostly rubbed down for its repaint, most buses at this time were painted by hand with paintbrushes and rollers. I distinctly remember coming in for tea break after a morning with a DA sander on an ex-Arriva B10B looking like a smurf - all over turquoise with my white dust mask on my head...

 

And the finished article:

H150GGS, Leyland Olympian/Northern Counties. by Scott Todd-Howard, on Flickr

 

H150 GGS is seen not long after being released into traffic at Oswestry Railway Station. Part of the cosmetic work had also seen the reinstatement of the square headlights originally fitted, H150 GGS came to us with the usual bodge of 7" round headlights fitted. Whenever we used to go on scavenging runs to Barnsley we'd buy things like NC headlights and surrounds as a 'just in case' as 4 of the decker fleet at that time had NC bodies.

WIB7192, Volvo B10M/Jonckheere Deauville by Scott Todd-Howard, on Flickr

 

My favourite coach in the fleet, I took it on as a 'pet' machine and had it for most coach jobs. Not the best cosmetically, but by far the strongest B10M at TVC. Another driver had 'his' machine and wouldn't take any argument that any other coach in the fleet was better - his was the best, end of. I might have enjoyed, just a tiny little bit, his rather sour face when I stomped past him uphill into Llandudno with a heavier load - WIB used to absolutely fly when given half a chance. 

 

More to come....

Nice to see TYD 911W still exists. Other ex Safeway of South Petherton vehicles that I know still exist are MYB 33, a Bedford OB, ASV 900 (ex ETP 184) a Dennis Lancet and TYC 250G, an AEC Reliance new to H&C of South Petherton.

Bloody hell, I used to part own MYB33 many years ago! It was in a parlous state then (and I;m talking over 20 years ago now) so unless someone's done anything to it since, I fear the worst.

And a few more:

A41 XHE was the first Tiger I drove at TVC, it was also the last in service there. On its last day this was printed up to commemorate the end of the Tigers at TVC:

And the machine itself:

And back at the depot just after I’d brought it in for the final time:

We did summer day trips to Llandudno from Welshpool & Llanfyllin, registered services so that pass holders could use them. The X1 ran Mondays only though the summer. The coach park at Llandudno was opposite the Alpine depot, who used a fleet of old VRs & Olympians on school runs. The suspension on one side of the Olympian pictured below had deflated during the day, no bother to the driver who hopped in, revved the bollocks off the engine enough to get the handbrake off and simply drove off making an awful racket as the side of his machine scraped down the side of its neighbour....

On the subject of Llandudno-based Olympians, this was a lovely machine to travel on:

Now preserved if I'm not mistaken.

I saw MYB 33 at Showbus in either 2008 or 2009 and it looked in good condition then

 

ETA Just checked DVLA, MYB 33 untaxed since 2016, ASV900 on SORN and TYC 250G showing as taxed. Other ex Safeway vehicles that still exist according to DVLA are F751 ENE and K835 HUM on SORN. Theres also 200APB which is back with its original owner Safeguard of Guildford. Sadly Safeway no longer exists, being taken over by South West Coaches in 2008. I believe the Safeway fleetname was kept for a time although don't know if it's still used.

Strange that MYB 33 is now untaxed as I can't imagine it would have been scrapped. It was fully restored and belonged to the editor of Bus & Coach Buyer magazine. Here it is at the OB 70th birthday gathering at Bletchley Park in 2009 - it was the last to arrive after overheating on the road run from Luton (hence the lack of bonnet sides).

Roadkill approval granted.

 

In local news, there's a new bus in town.

51735409_1982628475377946_55178945813932

 

It's part of the Advancing Aberystwyth project, and it seems they're planning to use it as a tourist bus over the summer. I don't know any more yet, but will see how they get on.
