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:

 

32097346167_b03c87634b_c.jpg

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:

 

33163896108_c90b450018_c.jpg

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. 

 

 

46315091054_0312f54e8b_c.jpg

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....

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

A41XHE, Leyland Tiger/Alexander TE. by Scott Todd-Howard, on Flickr

 

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....

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.

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).

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

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.

By some miracle Empress Coaches have managed to keep that Omni going all these years and I'm sure it's the only one left in passenger-carrying service, although there may be one or two knocking around as mobile (or more likely static) caravans. I'm sure Empress had two of them but the other one went a long time ago.

I've said before that every time I go up to our yard something new has appeared. Today it was this.
IMG_20190309_094357.jpg
Looks to be of Southdown origin looking at the reg.

Anyway this was todays ride.
IMG_20190309_101203.jpg

Nice to know it's not just mine that does this when it's cold.
IMG_20190309_095341.jpg

And we're off.
IMG_20190309_102237.jpg

To here.
IMG_20190309_105808.jpg

Here being the Blue Star/Unilink depot at Barton Park, Eastleigh.
IMG_20190309_105853.jpg

We had an extensive tour by the manager himself, which started in the board room where we treated to tea and coffee and Scottish confectionery.
IMG_20190309_110429.jpg
The mugs were very popular but unfortunately we weren't allowed to keep them. The manager spent a fair while bigging up his company, as you would expect him to. Though for a long time now I've considered them the higher quality operator in Southampton. The original Southampton City Transport have been in slow decline ever since First Group took over about twenty years ago.

The entire Unilink fleet was renewed in one hit last year. They are run by Blue Star to University of Southampton specifications. I like the new livery and couldn't help noticing that there were different coloured 'shards' on different buses.
IMG_20190309_124753.jpg IMG_20190309_124837.jpg IMG_20190309_124908.jpg
Turns out there's four different colours, yellow, orange, coral red and bluey green in equal numbers. It was worth the trip for this knowledge alone as it had been bugging me. I always seem to see the orange and coral ones on our local route and wondered if they were route specific, but no, they're random.

Anyway we walked round to the Blue Star side (it's all the same company, part of Go Ahead, but they seem to keep the two fleets separate at the depot) but to do we have to walk past Hants and Dorset trim who had these outside awaiting work.
IMG_20190309_121259.jpg IMG_20190309_121317.jpg
Which coincidentally are also Go Ahead South buses.

Blue Star now have a fleet of these on the 18 route.
IMG_20190309_121425.jpg IMG_20190309_121503.jpg IMG_20190309_123143.jpg
Which are numbered consecutively from the end of the Unilink fleet which is a bit odd. I know they're all ADL Enviro 400 thingies but the bodies are quite different.

Then there's this.
IMG_20190309_122400.jpg
Winchester to Southampton in style it says on the side.
IMG_20190309_122510.jpg IMG_20190309_122532.jpg IMG_20190309_123000.jpg
Yep, they're not wrong. And the seats are so comfy, I've been on these a few times. As well as having tables, the seats are as comfy as they look. This is better than most trains.

Its good to see a company investing in new quality double deckers. He said all new buses will be double deck. The Unilink buses have to be renewed every five years (and they've just won the contract for another ten years) and the last Unilink fleet have just been repainted blue and are now on my local route.

From starting as Solent Blue Line in 1987 with second hand VR's they are now definitely southamptons premier operator.

The Park Royal bodied AN68 is definitely ex Southdown, I remember travelling on them when they were on the Portsmouth to Brighton express service.

The bodies on those Alexander ones are the City? Version, basically a Borismaster design for the plebs outside the smoke. Nottingham have a load.

I think they call it the E400 Metro or something. It also looks like the old 'panoramic' upstairs front window has been shelved for what something resembling a postbox - maybe they had problems with the funny glass shape and it being too big.

I don't know what it is about them but the Cummins engines in new 400s and 200s sounds terrible after only a year or so of use, and the start-stop system they use is painful.

The 'nemesis' are the original Wright new Routemaster buses; they're the ones with no hopper windows, broken AC, faulty hybrid systems, a daft 'nostalgic' rear door configuration that doesn't work and a price tag to match. I don't think they're in production anymore and nowadays the mainstay are those E400s above (just another restyle of the old model) and a conventional Wright design which shares some of the new RM architecture which unfortunately includes its tint windows. Nevertheless unless you don't believe in all this hybrid stuff London's buses are generally now back to normal iterative design as opposed to the stupid Boris bus gimmicks and the unpopular bendy bus experiment.

I know nothing about these, though I've just been on a couple. I knew Berlin had double deckers because an old one turned up at the RM50 celebrations some years ago.
IMG_20190311_094343.jpg IMG_20190313_174820.jpg IMG_20190313_175947.jpg IMG_20190313_194347.jpg
They are big tri axle things and they have (unsurprisingly) MAN badges on the front. In true continental style the seats are dissapointing but they ride very well, no bangs and crashes more noticeably virtually no vibration at all even when idling in gear. That's virtually unheard of on any bus over here (in England I mean, I'm still in Berlin as I write this). Overall I'm impressed. They also have upper deck windscreen wipers though they weren't being used on the one I went on in the rain.

This is an earlier generation now being used on sightseeing tours with a quality* open top convertion covered with a big tarpaulin.

Realistically most modern buses with 6-cyl engines will be vibration free as that engine type is inherently perfectly balanced. 4-cyl engines in Darts and our new generation of eco-buses are not.

 

At the end of the day those MEN are just very well designed and screwed together - like the Citaros that we get. AD seem to get their plastic mouldings from the wheely-bin factory.

This is pretty remarkable:

I see on other places it's possibly for sale.

Good god. I haven't seen one of those in mobile condition for YONKS.

By some miracle Empress Coaches have managed to keep that Omni going all these years and I'm sure it's the only one left in passenger-carrying service, although there may be one or two knocking around as mobile (or more likely static) caravans. I'm sure Empress had two of them but the other one went a long time ago.

I've driven an Omni with a 2.5 LR diesel.

Fucking useless.

Just having a 6 cylinder engine isn't enough to make a bus vibration free. It's only the last ten years or so that four cylinder engines have become more common in buses but most vibrate particularly when idling in gear. These things were virtually silent (and no they weren't stop/start. Those hybrid stop/start things in London make it VERY clear when they restart). Like you say, I think they're just well built.
