    and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Was great to take a trip into town on the old backloaders. Won't bore everyone with the scores of pics I took...so here's just a few







    and remember when the seats looked like this

    Wirral is holding a similar event this Sunday (5th Oct 08)

    I think it will be down at Birkenhead Park again...or in Taylor Street.

    Some good ol' Wallasey Cream and Birkenhead Blue's will be out!

    I and am sure many others had a great day. Myself & friends started at Old Roan at 9.00 am with a run on the old 59 route. we had worked out a timetable to travel on as many buses as possible. But the run on the old Ribble 57 route put paid to that, after the driver got lost! We ended the day with the open top bus from South parkway to Pier head, great fun. Well done to the Merseyside transport trust.

    Default Trollybus

    What ever happend to the old trollybus surly in this day and age it must be the best mode of public transport around, to me it seems to tick all the plusses. Unlike the modern day bus it dosnt belt out toxic gases and is less noisy. Unlike the tram it dosent need lines to run on and is manuverable in traffic. The County Councils should realise by now that the deregulation of public transport dosnt work and this mode of transport if taken over by the councils would be more cost effective.
