Midland Red BMMO D7 THA 86 4086
I have never been a Midland Red fan, but recently my interest is growing, and I think it's about time I invested in some Midland Red books to gain some information. Any further info on this particular bus is extremely grateful. A BMMO D7 with bodywork by Metro Cammell. New as H58RD but later upseated to H63RD I do notice that there is a lot of family resemblence to the later D9. An aquired photo, so photographer and location etc are unknown.
The Guys at Quinton
Standing at Quinton bus garage in Birmingham are WMPTE Metro-Cammell bodied Guys MOF 65/27/85/32. For some reason (boredom?) the buses on this day were all parked neatly in ehelon fashionrather than the usual tight row that was a feature of the forecourt at Quinton.

Clydebank on 29 January 2012 saw the Glasgow start of the 15th Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique from the Clydebank College campus near to the area's famous Titan Crane. Along with the Monte-Carlo runners were the Caledonian Classic & Historic Motorsport Club (CCHMSC) Blythswood Heritage Run entrants. Other drivers of classic vehicles brought their cars to the area too, adding to the atmosphere.

RT796 on the 42 route - Tower Bridge. Sep'67.
RT796 (a wee bit too close!) on the 42 route passes under one of the towers of Tower Bridge on 8/9/67. No radiator blanking plate is unusual -as is the 'via' blind display. Route 42 went to MB's in Jan 1970.
This is Northern's well-known 'Tynesider', former Tyneside Leyland PD3 49, rebuilt for one-man-operation in 1972. As the PSV Circle reported, it was "neither a beautiful nor popular vehicle". It is seen here, presumably at North Shields, on loan to Tyneside Omnibus, on 3 July 1972, still apparently employing the use of a conductor. It saw little passenger service after 1972, it's main duties being as a staff bus. It was subsequently preserved. Note too, the Sunblest Austin FG, KVK 505D…
