A few pic's of Sunday's bus running day. It was the mtt's most ambitious running day so far with 21 buses, (including the Ribble & Crosville buses) Made all the better by the sunny weather.

Great pics, I remember all those types of bus from when I was growing up.

I've got an old ticket machine somewhere from the days when every bus had a Conductor, it's still got some tickets in it, I think the most expensive one is 10p.

Happy days!!!
