    We get to see loads of pictures so that you can photo-shop yourself back onto the 'landing-deck' or whatever the technical name for it is. The more folk that go along the better it is for all.

    Thanks, I'll look forward to seeing any photographs that are taken. Should be a fine day of nostalgia.

    That's right Liverpool corporation buses had guards, as its a Liverpool bus running day, the guys on the platform will be guarding not conducting

    Were L Corp. just being different for the sake of it or did their bus business stem from a tram system which itself originated from a rail system?
    I take it that the function of both 'conductor' and 'guard' was the same; collecting enamel badges and covering their lapels with same, abbreviating the English language back to a series of grunts and nods, oh, and the taking of money and the giving of tickets too?

    May I make a comment by way of clarification,we Crosvile staff were referred to among ourselves (and by the inspectors) as guards, but to the general public, (and strictly speaking, the job description) we were conductors.
    Hope this helps.

    Oh Red Time that's putting the cat amongst the pigeon's" " did you carry a shotgun and not a ticketmachine?" what was your t/machine called and was it easy to operate we had a telephone dial with a button underneath fo release of the ticket,
    I thought yours looked harder,followed by LCPT, then ours, don't know what Ribble machines were like

    Hi, I was a fitter at Crosville Edge Lane in the 70's, my Dad and Uncle were at the MPTE (Corpy), and although the job title was Conductor, we always referred to them as Guards and everyone else did too. When I drive up Edge Lane now its sad to see nothing left of the Works or
    just a decaying shed of what was the Crosville depot, all that engineering skill thrown away, with no prospect of returning. Cheers, Ally.

    Hi Jointy, yes I remember a lad Bobby Murray, I'm sure he lived on Western Avenue.Ginger hair, I was always jealous of his Snap-On tools,he spent a fortune on them. I remember him repairing a badly rusted wing on a Viva, a huge hole he filled using a pile of brazing rods,then body filler on top, all Crosville's materials of course, and their Oxo plant as well! the job was his own "foreigner". But that was how things were then, I suppose we got away with all kinds of stunts, thinking back.You a relative? let me know, all the best Ally.

    Hello Allyj, Bobby is a friend and lives just off Western Avenue now. He's packed in work but still keeps all his tools in a lock up. His ginger hair is no more and he plays the guitar and sings in the Allies club on Thursday nights. Regards, Jointy.

    Hi Jointy, yes that's Bobby, I forgot he played guitar.At xmas we'd have a P*** Up over the road in the Queen of Diamonds, and he'd borrow mine.I'm finished with work now too,disabled after a fight with the big C. My last job I was on for Road Range (Mercedes) in Rathbone Road Wavertree around the corner from Edge Lane.I go up to Whiston a lot to see a Plastic Surgeon and pass a closed down alehouse in Prescot where our union had branch meetings.Its good to hear of him.Another lad from Huyton was John Walsh,he lived over by the Bluebell.Next time you see him say Hi for me will you, and ask him if he remembers giving me "The Window Treatment", THE B******! All the best Allyj (Allan Jones)
