Oh crap. It is indeed an Optare Metrocity. At least there's barely anyone on it.

Bored now. Over an hour on this bus so far. Another ten minutes and I change to an identical bus for the next leg. I did pass a field full of broken Escort Mk5s, but alas wasn't quick enough to get a snap. Driver likes to hoon! Though that means we have to stop all the time to get back on timetable. Ugh.

The last time I went on a bus , I got on it at that very stop . It was a Crosville Bristol RE on my last day at school in 1980.

Seems nice. Went to fill it up and realised I'd lost my wallet. Fortunately discovered this before putting fuel in. Found a bank, cancelled the cards and blagged fifty quid. If it drinks more fuel than that, I'm screwed.

Mr wobbler has reported a flickering oil light, but 1st volvo delivered. Surely a brave undertaking on Black Friday, or did I get the meaning of today wrong?

Volvos are rubbish. Volvo one started flickering its oil pressure light. Volvo two ran out of electricity. Now aboard a Fiat 126 with dinner. Interesting day!

Oh dear, fingers crossed tomorrow is a better day!  Was Volvo #1 not just in need of a topup?  If the PCV is clogged on the 2.3 they can use a fair bit.
