a little bit of tlc…

Thanks to Mike from the Plymouth City Transport Preservation Group for the latest update on their attempts to track down a former Citybus Renault minibus. It now looks like they are very close to getting D127LTA at least. To give you an idea of what they are up against here are a few pictures of 27 in her current state...
D127LTA D127LTA The rear has been changed quite a bit!
D127LTA I am pretty sure that these were not fitted out like this in service!
Hopefully one day she will return to this condition:

Put in its simplest form, it's making the most of what you can with what you've got and for this Virgin Trains must be congratulated A Transport of Delight
Centro PTE and Birmingham council aspire to a network of bus rapid transit routes centred on the city centre but that is nothing compared to the vision proposed in the United States. Omnibuses
This is one of the best ideas to emerge from the bus industry in ages. And no, this time, I’m not being ironic. I’m referring to First’s Safe Journey Card featured on Thursday on Leon Daniels’s blog. And Daniels is far too modest and self-deprecating to mention that it was all his idea. Omnibuses


  1. Does anyone know the date when the last one was withdrawn by CityBus?

  2. Many thanks for that so they were in service about 11 years with PCB.
