Hitting the Target

I have finally managed to get some decent photos of the new Enviros with Target Travel Target Travel KX59CYY Target Travel KX59CYY

These do seem to be popular buses with the passengers and do promote a much better image for Target Travel than some of their other buses. With most recent purchases being Darts and Enviros it does seem that Optare Solos are out of favour with Target these days.

  • Today seems as good as place as any to begin a new, irregular-ish feature I'm going to call Welcome Back. In this feature, I'll post a variety of photos that I'd lost on fotopic but have since returned after they opened up (what appears to be some of) their servers Southern England Bus Scene
  • Here we have a Sunbeam MS2/Park Royal six-legger trolleybus at the Christchurch tram and later trolley terminus, being turned around on the turntable by its crew. All part of a day’s work, back then. Wouldn’t be allowed these days, not under current health & safety regulations, whose risk assessments and safe systems of work would’ve killed this particular arrangement. Dorset Bus Blog

  • The saga all began when the latest edition of the county council's book failed to hit shelves last October and there was little sign of a new one arriving until a private publishing firm took over the job, but increased the price from £1 to £13.50. Public Transport Experience

  1. They certainly do look great. The runs in the evening peak it's not uncommon to see a standing load on these - Target have certainly got something right and its great to see them doing well.
