    I'm still a big kid when a double decker bus comes along and I have to sit at the front at the top to get a birds eye view over people's gardens

    We had two old buses at St Mags (you remember them Kev?) they used to belch out the most amazing smoke and I remember we sent one 1st year in to the garage to get a ball just as they were cranking up the engine. Poor sod came out black

    The one we used was called "Old Faithful" and would take hours and hours to get to Anglesea, good fun though.

    Old faithful - that's the one! A bluey green colour if I can remember. Always piloted by 'jock' Davidson, and we used to liken him to Mackay from Porridge!

    John 'Wilko' Wilkinson was the BEST teacher in St Mags. Always had time for you when you took an interest in CDT and his numerous Jags too.

    I remember once he built a go-kart and thrashed it around the large yard before being told off by one of the other teachers

    I had Wilko for CDT. Remember once he insisted that my own metal ruler was one of his! He took it and wouldn't give me it back. It was mine as well - my dad "borrowed" it from Fords for me I was still crap at CDT tho!

    Default Great Photos!!

    I have just spent an hour or so going through all of these wonderful photos of the buses. Absolutely brilliant!

    It has been a long time since I was back in England and I often reminisce about my childhood days in Garston riding the buses to Hunts Cross, Speke and in to the city centre.

    Can anyone possibly satisfy my curiosity; I remember a bus that used to stop at the bottom of Window Lane back in the 60’s. It stopped on the corner of York Street and Window Lane by a pub that I think was called The Clarence. I am trying to recall the number of that bus. I am thinking that it was the number 66 and it used to say Lee Park on in it. The trouble is I am recalling this through a child’s eyes and I may be wrong.

    I want to write a song/poem about how I used to love the smell of the diesel fumes from that bus because we didn’t have cars on our street back then. I would like to make sure that I get my facts right. If anyone can confirm a double-decker that was the number 66 to Lee Park that went to the bottom of Window Lane in Garston I would be extremely grateful.

    Such lovely memories…

    Re the 66 Bus Route: Ged, parts of your route confuses me! the 66 in (my day) started at the bottom of Window lane, thenleft into Banks Rd, ACROSS St Marys Rd (Bottom of the village) up Woolton Rd, past the Cenotaph, past woolton Woods to Woolton Village, Down to Belle Vale via Hunts Cross ave and then returned to Window Lane by the reverse route. That was prior to 1963, so route may have changed since then. Cheers

    I used to get the No.10 in Norton street outside the Midland bank in the 1970s to my mate up in Old Swan.

    According to my 1964 book:

    It is the Prescot to City route as follows:

    Oliver Lyme Road/Manchester Road (B.I.C.C. factory)
    West Street
    Knowsley Lane
    Hillside Road
    Altmoor Road
    Page Moss
    Lordens Road
    Finch Lane
    Eaton Road
    Blackhorse Lane
    Old Swan
    Green Lane
    Holland Street
    Sheil Road
    Low Hill
    Stafford Street
    Clayton Square/Central Station
    South Castle Street or Pier Head (various)

    Other variations are the 10A, 10B, 10C, 10D

    C for instance meant via Castle St, D = via Dale Street.

    The 66 doesnt run anymore to my knowledge!

    If you want to get from St Mary's Road (for instance) to Wood Lane, you have to jump on one of the buses going to the Airport (lets say the 80A) and then change at the Airport Bus Interchange; then jump onto the 89 (Airport-St Helens) untill you get to Belle Vale Shopping Centre, and then change again to jump onto the 79 which terminates on Wood Lane.

    There might be a more direct, but less frequent way of getting from Garston to Lee Park but the above is what an Arriva Ticket Holder would do!

    I think the 10C terminated at Page Moss and the 10D terminated at Longview.
    We lived in Radway Road at the time.
    As for the 10A & 10B not sure.
