With additional routes starting soon Jacketts Coaches need some more vehicles T902JTD is one of two Dennis Darts acquired recently from Countrybus. T902JTD and T581JTD are both in this smart blue and white livery.
T902JTD was new to Jim Stones as BUS1T it then spent some time with Shuttle Buses Kilwinning

Bristol Departure Board Daftness Marlborough Street bus station was opened in 1958 by the Bristol Omnibus Company. It replaced stands located at various points in the city centre and was the base for country services.
Kirkby Stephen Easter Rally The Easter Kirkby Stephen & Brough Rally took place in glorious weather. As usual there was a large selection of exhibits taking part, with crowds of visitors making use of the free bus services between exhibition sites.
Easter Bus Services: Time for a Review? The Man on the Lancaster Omnibus found out about this from a rather obscure bus enthusiast publication that he subscribes to - one which is completely unknown to the general public - but what steps did Stagecoach take to sell the new service to its target market?


  1. be nice to see all of jackets in this blue and white colour on all there buses very smart looking ,but then again jacket not like spending money on is buses

    1. Are Jackets going to put there fleetnames on there buses?

  2. Why spend money that you don't have to? Council contracts are as good as their notice period, no security in the work, only as a springboard to different things.

  3. Oakleys is temp running the 55/56/98 for Beacon Bus. Was running the route today with one of their party limo buses. Strange to think that at night it transports from pub to club, by night school/village bus service.

  4. Do Jacketts still have ex-fdc 20442 M302 BRL?. If not, does anyone know where is went?

  5. They had it back in January it was on rail replacement in Exeter https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/74802869@N03/12070731574/
