Beryl in Burnley

Earlier in the week we had Discovery Tours Leyland Leopard “Beryl” and one reader was curious as to her age. Thanks to Gordon Watkins I can now bring you a photo of the bus in her original state as Burnley & Pendle YHG16V:

I think I prefer the original Alexander body but its nice to see her still trundling round Plymouth.

  • Oh yes! Of course, no one will know that it is all about selling the existing site for an extension of the shopping centre. Earthlings are not that perceptive! Master-piece. Public Transport Experience
  • the only remedy in this situation surely is to increase general contract prices on the assumption that on n days, the contract won’t run and there will be no payment. That way, operators continue to cover overheads even where there is no payment for non-running. The BBC might not understand this but I suspect Scottish councils do. Omnibuses
  • After a month's break from photography I found myself with a day spare on a trip to Cheshire last weekend so I headed for a part of the world I've rarely seen let alone photographed in the form of north west Wales. Transport Illustrated

  • Am I being over-optimistic if I say that the last government was good to buses and it looks as if the current one is, too? At the awards, for example, the minister announced the third round of the green bus fund. Now there’s 2½ times the cash going into BBAs—£50mil—directly into urban areas. Omnibuses
