Haha, lol, poor bus! Can't believe they actually cracked that bus' window for that!
I wonder how you've captured that bus from so high up! Maybe you're the giant yourself lol! ;)
Also, a quick off-topic, I recently saw one of those buses in Totnes, a shorter Tally Ho one!
I honestly couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it coming 'round the corner! :eek:

Thought it was a bit odd that I post more spottings of GSC buses than of RATP, so here's a newer Gemini 2, adhering to the shortened routes.

And we also see a change in the timetable for the X2, sadly not using the new-forest livery solo but at least it's a 'bus', I guess.

A shocking picture, but last Saturday I glimpsed one of our 'new' B7RLE Urbans from Somerset. This one is 69209 (MX06VPG).

nevermind the window, I can't believe they cut an entire bus in half!

I hope it had some kind of major chassis defect before they did this to it, since cutting up a previously perfectly fine bus is just stupid.
Cutting up a withdrawn bus ready for scrap and making it look half-decent would be more sensible, surely?

Apparently it was already withdrawn from what I've read on Instagram, but it's still a waste of a type of bus now rare in this country. (DAF SB250/East Lancs Myllenium Spryte).

It's a bus. The only time an operator cares about it is if it's making money, once it stops making money it goes to scrap. No emotional investment to an object which serves the purpose of transporting people. It's likely it was more expensive to make roadworthy than to continue to operate it. Plus, it's really good PR for the event that took place in Liverpool. Certainly got a lot of people curious.

Here's the (oddly foxhole-liveried) Optare Solo number 18 I got on, arriving at Kingswear just before 20:00. It's one of the two buses I got on home, after an approximately 10mi walk. Taken from a small video clip, that's why it's so blurry on some parts.

The first of a few videos from Derby, still got another 30-ish minutes of footage from the bus station ready to edit together, along with everything from the train station.

I’m sorry but as soon as I saw this I had to take a few pics I couldn’t believe my eyes :eek:

Sorry for the bad picture quality I had to take them quick!

Not exactly bus spotting, but whilst bus spotting today I saw 13045 had a large amount of smoke coming out the exhaust so took a ride... Turns out the Diesel Particulate Filter was regenerating:
