For a Bank Holiday it was a very good day out only really marred by the unpredictable weather and the
geeks bus enthusiasts who, amongst all transport devotees, strike me as being somewhat queer “odd”.
For a start off, they we always rude in not asking you to move out of the way for a photo of their favourite bus and second, queuing up for a ride on a bus seemed a bit bizarre as catching a bus seemed such an everyday thing to do, but they were determined to ride the lot. And seemed a bit “secretive” about it. As if they were indulging in a guilty pleasure. I couldn’t get worked up myself but I did enjoy the trip on the Midland Red one we caught for a ride out to Henley -in-Arden. Aren’t there some big houses there?
However, it does seem to me that buses were more comfortable than nowadays even though the mechanics have improved somewhat.
Overall, a good day out with some people who appreciate Public transport for what it is – an essential part of the fabric of our society. And something that should return to public ownership in my opinion.
