Phew! The first thing that hits me with this list is what a massive list it is. I knew the First Tickets were complicated but didn't realise just how complicated. I am not sure how much of an increase these new prices are but I suspect that most are increases rather than decreases!


It’s not unheard of. Local transport authority feels the pinch and selects services or journeys from which it wishes to withdraw. Operator decides to take on the risk commercially. Everyone’s happy. And with more & more LTAs contemplating budget savings, they will no doubt be hoping that operators will step in. Omnibuses
My one and only communist Christmas happened 25 years ago in 1985 and, as you can imagine was a fascinating experience. Transport Illustrated
Northern Belle has now returned to operation after her annual refit. This year it has seemed particularly quick, and Northern is looking spectacular again, ready for another season of hard graft. PTOTPA
We’ve said it before but it’s worth repeating: today has become one of the biggest shopping days of the year, even busier that New Year’s Day. This year could be busier still, with VAT on the rise and a certain pent up need for shopping, thanks to pre-Christmas winter weather. Boxing Day used to be a family day and it’s actually a sad indictment of our consumer culture that it is no longer. Omnibuses
Never before have we seen so many unfortunate incidents of coaches overturning on our roads. Two weekends ago yet another Oxford Tube Van Hool Astromega double-deck coach overturned as it existed the M40 at J7 and three days ago a Galloway European 60-reg coach, fully laden with elderly passengers, ended up sideways on the tarmac. A Transport of Delight
I suppose it was the fact that the crash occurred on Christmas Eve. And that the majority if not all the 48-49 passengers aboard were reported as wearing their seat belts and the vehicle remained largely structurally intact. For these reasons, the Norfolk crash, where a brand new 60-reg Mercedes of Coach Marqued Galloway’s ended up on its side, didn’t quite get the media exposure you might’ve expected. No one died.
