Not Ice on the Destination Display seems to show the A\C needs service or repair... 🤓

🤣 The blind is fine it's the camera on my phone, for some reason it cuts out destination displays a lot 😂

 

Though we have had problems with the air con on most of the coaches, seems its the fans in the roof that are at fault, apparently its a common problem with Levantes.

Got a new Job Coach Driving ! No more teaching Rants YAY !!

first allocation was an Irizar i6s Triaxle 21 Reg Just Go holidays Livery  C58FT

Then this afternoon

2008 Volvo B12B Van Hool T9 Alizee C53F  which was fun and kids were making S** noises

Just got my letter from DVLA for the renewal of my PSV. As I'll by over 65 when it's due, the annual medical, licence change and other costs (CPC) means it's not seriously worth it given how little I've driven recently. Enjoy the future, I started in 1978 so buses and coaches were rather different.

I gave up my psv licence 3 years ago on my 55th birthday. I wouldnt have passed the medical due to the prescription drugs I am on. I miss driving coaches, but not the school runs. In fact I refused to do school runs, there was enough other contract work to avoid them. One of my mates ended up in a bad place because a 15 year old girl that he had told to sit down and behave went to the school and said he had grabbed her arse. He was sacked, threatened with court, he now has a black mark on his record, cant pass a pvg disclosure so cant work with kids or vulnerable people. This lead to him having a breakdown and he hasn't worked since. The girl was a known trouble maker but the mud stuck. Theres nothing worse to work with than teenage schoolkids.

That's the problem, mud sticks. I didn't speak to the kids much on school runs for that reason, all it takes is something taken the wrong way or whatever and causes all sorts of problems. Fortunately on NX it's very rare we do them, only to help out if Coaching are struggling.

They all know their rights, but never know how to spell them...

(I hate children, for many reasons.)

Thank god all our vehicles have CCTV on board now

CCTV saved a driver's bacon years ago at a firm I used to work for. They were accused of being inappropriate with a secondary school pupil on the bus, the pupil alleged that he cornered them on the back seat and grabbed them. I had the job of downloading and reviewing the CCTV, the first thing we noticed was that there was no feed from either of the upstairs cameras - both black. But the downstairs were working just fine, and showed the driver never went upstairs from the moment the pupil boarded to the moment they got off. Then we went and looked again at the bus, and found both upstairs CCTV lenses covered up. So we scrolled back to the morning trip and were rewarded with full facial pictures of the accusing pupil staring straight into the camera before the feed went black, and the second one showed them covering the first one before doing the same thing. Back to the school with the evidence and the pupil ended up expelled.

Weird coincidence time. This Neoplan from a local firm was resting in the town lorry park yesterday. Its driver said they used to have two of them but the other was sold to the Isle of Wight last year.

24 hours later, what should turn up nearby? Yes, it's the other one of the pair, still in the same colour scheme!

And to balance out the island and stop it sinking with the exodus of natives, this was on its way there with a load of tourists.

So, we were in Leeds Bus Station the last time and we might as well continue there.  Leeds had a two tone green livery but the one man buses were mainly light green with dark green lower deck windows whilst the older, two man (and the old colours) were dark green with light green windows.

Lets start by showing these differences on the (then old and new) buses 50 years ago.  Leeds mainly bought locally built Roe bodies so generally the only differences were what chassis they were on.

New PDR2/1 Atlantean 404 (that would be subsequently sold to Ipswich) stands alongside exposed radiator rear entrance Regent V's 854 & 791 and front entrance Daimler CVG6 572 (that would end up at Huddersfield). That little white box on the front up lit up and said "Limited" to warn intending passengers it didn't stop at all the stops.

More Regent V's, including tin fronted 944 that ended up with Tyne and Wear PTE and Metro Cammel bodied 920 flanked by Atlantean 463 and Fleetline 146 both with Roe bodies. Note how Leeds didn't paint the bonnets on a lot of the front engined buses.

Single deck Fleetline 1214,

32, an L406D Merc with Deansgate body on the shopper service.

The end for many buses is sad, former 426, a Regent III that had been used as a driver trainer since the early 60's ended up at Sykes Blacker Hill scrap yard.

I’d drop them off at the services, wait till the fuckers go off shoplifting in WH Smith’s and put the fucker in drive and head for the sliproad.
