I was also trusted to sit at the back of the school tranny. (not that sort)Once, it a fit of buggeration, at 12/13 years old, I swapped the main live feeds to the stop/tail/indicator lamp units.......I got a right laugh when i saw it going down the main drive stopping for a junction, and the indicators coming on............It failed its next MOT and the "sabotage" was menitioned in assembly. I kept very quiet, and sat nowhere near the rear after that.

My school had a Commer minibus. That's dangerous enough in itself :lol:

Our scout group had a commer bus, followed by a transit with lovely sliding front doors (GR8 for summer camping trips). I think its mandatory for all scout / school minibuses to have galloping rust and holes in the floor and also all Transits to be powered by some woeful crappy petrol engine.

Mind you - given the abuse they suffer - This is me using ours to make a swing with one camping trip in France...

World's smallest schools?

The school I went to was the biggest in Scotland at the time, with over 2000 pupils it was probably one of the biggest in the UK, and we just had a Transit minibus as far as I know. When I was in the Scouts the standard method of transport was still the leaders' cars plus as many parents as they could rope in, which generally worked out at 7 or 8 per car. The first time I was in a car over 100mph was a parent's Chrysler Alpine with 8 children on board, two of whom were in the boot.

When I was a kid the transport to the sites for our cub and scout camps was a removals truck with all the gear in it, then all the cubs/scouts thrown in on top. Used to travel along with the top of the 'stable-door' at the back pinned open and all of us waving to the cars behind! :shock: Bloody mental when you think about it - but no-one batted an eyelid back then! It was a hoot!

The Vauxhall version of the Trafic is the Vivaro, the Movano is a rebadged Master. I think both are available with Nissan badges too.
