Torpoint - the hard way

Over the last few weeks I have received a few photographs from people for the blog but have not managed to fit them all in with everything else going on at the moment! So this morning we start to put that right starting with a few from "Laira" who was on the 31 temporary Plymouth to Torpoint service laid on while the Torpoint Ferry staff were in strike recently:

12: Newton Abbot - Brixham The 12 is a high frequency link between the major towns of the English Riviera, serving several major tourist attractions along the way. It runs every 10 mins Mon-Sat daytimes, every 15 mins Sunday daytimes and every 20 minutes each evening. It's run by Stagecoach and is branded as Hop 12.
'Scene' in Hanley Bus Station. The independent operators. I was familiar with the old Hanley bus station and I had not yet seen the new one that opened in 2013 so a visit was long overdue. Although it was only a weekday, it seemed crowded and a driver told me to come back at tea time when it would be gridlocked.....!
