I cannot recall any suggestion that this resurrected a historical name in any way. Hope all this helps or at least is of interest. I just wondered Ashton-unrer-Lyne anyone has any information about ABC Bus Services, a company which operated from Dunham on Trent, Nottinghamshire, in the s and possibly into Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne 60s?
There were Applewhite coaches and an Applewhite Garage in Dunham at the time. I do not know if any specific UK emissions legislation was in place before that. Sorry I cannot be of more help with your enquiry. I believe Ashtonn-under-Lyne was noise legislation that killed the Atlantean rather than emissions. The morphed into the which was a transition to the TL I was wondering Ashton-ynder-Lyne I could find the technical drawings for the MCW Metrobus, I am doing a 3D project and wanted to bring this bus back to life so to speak for a bus simulator.
I saw the Leyland Atlantean on here and wondered if there was anyway to acquire Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne drawings for a model Ontario online sex chat well.

The coasting brake was applied by the Asthon-under-Lyne using a switch or lever on the master controller. It connected the traction motor armature and series field in such a way that it acted as a generator and was loaded to a portion of the starting resistance. Whilst in use, the brake limited the road speed generally to less than 15mph and also isolated the power pedal. Gradients of 1in9 and steeper were the deciding factors used by the Ministry for coasting brake use.
Four routes in Huddersfield required the use of the coasting brake and downward speeds were generally about 14mph though this speed could be less by adjustment of the starting resistance load value by Lady looking sex Stokesdale engineering staff.
Thank you, Richard, most interesting. Just a comment on 1 in 9 Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne being the trigger point for the Ministry requiring coasting brakes.
In Bradford, the 33 Eccleshill terminus in Faltis Square involved a sharp right turn off from Victoria Road and also a yellow on black compulsory bus stopbefore going down on what was the steepest hill on the system, the 1 in 8 Bank.
The yellow on black compulsory sign was also used on the 8 inbound from Duckworth Lane at Whetley Hill, nrw 30 inbound Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne Church Bank and the 42 outbound to Greengates at Albion Road; however, these routes were lower than 1 in 8.
I have never heard of coasting brakes being fitted to Bradford trolleys, any thoughts, please? Many Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne Stuart for your kind comments and yes Bradford was very much on my mind when I made my first posting. Bradford never had any routes where Coasting Brake Regulations were imposed. Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne I was wrong in saying Huddersfield had four routes with Coasting Brake Regulations as additionally there was the Longwood route which had two short steep sections where coasting brake regulations were Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne in This makes me think that short steep sections could be exempted so this maybe how Bradford was coasting brake free.
The greatly improved control system SD became standard for most of the wartime trolleybus and Horny black women Essex production and replaced the regenerative braking systems. By nearly all trolleybuses had better electric brake systems and Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne able to stop reliably on any steep gradient so some relaxation of Coasting Brake Regulations may have been possible.
I cannot claim any special knowledge Grandmas who want sex in Norway il the topic but it does occur to me that Bradford was an older system than the others — I think.
All sounds most plausible to me Richard, after all, as in many things, Bradford was the first and the last as in trolleybuses nes pas.

Well, in those days coaches were parked on grass and at leaving time Gmm and his splendid mount YUG took no prisoners and he led the field by menacing tactics so as to get out first and join the heavy traffic on the A There is also a picture on: I will have to put Chris Y out of his puzzlement about the Tote. The Totalisator was a state owned organisation for mostly on-course betting. The staff were certainly more clerk-ish and less colourful than bookies, but the system was less intimidating for the inexperienced.
The Tote was privatised fairly recently. Incidentally, the former Hardwicks depot in Snainton is still extant albeit now used by a car restoration company for storage purposes. I must thank Joe for his interesting explanation of "The Tote. This was to compliment two other stations operated by the US in Alaska and Greenland. It became operational in as RAF Fylingdales and its large three 40 metres diameter golf ball style covers were a familiar landmark from Later on, between and these domes were dismantled and replaced by a single pyramid Black horny girls in Lakeside Oregon. To get workers to the completed site, Wallace Aston-under-Lyne Tours from Leeds, who had a depot in Scarborough, were involved in bringing in people from Whitby and Pickering as well as Scarborough.

They were always in a rush. Once on the contract, one to five years more work came before final withdrawal and sale. The WAT livery was kept and when the livery was mainly cream, there was an added red waistband that carried the letters RCA in white. With the change to grey and white-cream livery, the RCA contract buses had all of the lower area below Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne waistband painted grey such as seen on AUAJ whilst some such as BNWC did have a red waistband on the overall grey livery.
It is has been recorded that this contract had little support from many of WAT staff coupple the copule were "hammered" by the RCA drivers and were not kept in good condition, Ashtpn-under-Lyne being seen lowering normal WAT standards. How for those other than WAT staff and enthusiasts and some passengers would know the coaches were from WAT is questionable, however, "most employees considered that these vehicles were no longer anything to do with the company" The main contract seems to have run from until T when I guess, personal car use had reached a zenith and the service was no longer required.
After this, it is a little vague but a process of educated guesswork neww some rekindled memories in comments given, would suggest the following Leylands were used: To Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne those who contacted me on this topic I sincerely Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne you and hope the above "current only view" will be of help!
Following my last posting on the 20th July some of my questions can now be answered. The contract finished in with 9 Fords and these were from the batch of 15 registered PNW to W new in with Plaxton Supreme IV C53F bodies and would have been sent to Fylingdales probably in or My assumption that the contract finished in due to increased personal car use nww wrong, as WAT actually lost the contract at the end of to United.
They were not allowed to be used in public service and had the destination glass overpainted to prevent this happening and they also had a dedicated group of drivers who did work with RCA after and before they drove the bus. The remaining thirty-five with Plaxton bodywork came to United in three batches 10 in July15 in and 10 in December and they all initially served on the London routes. However, United lost the contract, reported due to unreliability, so the Leopards entered normal service, see for example www.
A remaining question, who then coiple the contract from ? Just an update to my last posting that asked who got the contract in after UAS. I am at present compiling a second edition of the PSV Circle East Yorkshire fleet history, and I would be pleased if you could supply details of vehicles used on the contract sincefor inclusion.

When Ashton-under-Lynr worked at South Yorkshire Road Transport at Pontefract we had a new driver from Wales, and Xxx granny new Ogallala was always interested in discussing Welsh operators with Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne.
When I first showed him a picture of a Leyland Bull before his bus driving days of course descending the cobbled Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne round a treacherous bend he turned white, wobbled, and had to be revived with a good whiff of smelling salts.

Strange fact number The steep bit of the Markham route, the double right angled turn under the railway bridge and the one in not-very-many is referred to in every publication I have mew across as either Bargoed Hill or Aberbargoed Hill. The actual name of the road is Bedwellty Road — no hills involved!
As far as I can ascertain it has always been called that. When the raiiway Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne, the bridge was removed and the hill straightened but the bus service and main road wdere diverted to a new road, Angel Way, some yards to the south giving a Women looking for sex Edinburgh easier climb to Horny lonely girl in Trenton New Jersey traffic lights half way up the hill.
Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne very interesting route indeed — this link shows what happens if you got it wrong — Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne.
Mervyn, perhaps you could confirm. In the event, I for one am reasonably satisfied as to mG they are, we do know that Bedwellty Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne Mynyddislwyn UDCs did come together to form the West Monmouthshire Omnibus Board, if nothing else.
Regarding the button mentioned by Mervyn Pearce, I think that this is the one in question, from my collection. The title is clearly shown around the outside with the W.
West Monmouthshire Omnibus Board initials in the centre. The edition of the Little Red Book shows Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne undertaking details, which were submitted by the Operator, as: So the undertaking did issue uniform buttons.
Hope this clears it up. This makes the inscription on the badge somewhat puzzling as this reads "U D Council", and not "Councils". One would have expected the plural to be used to describe their joint co-operation. Perhaps the Council s were more closely linked than it first appears?
Does anyone remember the modern day hill run in the early noughties? I took my Tilling Stevens and at the hill bottom it still looked very formidable. The vehicle is extremely low geared and I "raced" up in 2nd gear rounding the curve at the top on full revs surprising the photographers. Never seen any photos of the occasion though.
I was wondering if you or anyone else would know how many Southdown Buses or Coaches are left running and are in good condition. I lived in East Grinstead for over 50 years, we had the Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne which was a local service, 36 to Brighton via Haywards Heath and the 92 Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne Eastbourne. Phil, Ashton-under-Lyje are definitely domestic stair carpet clips.
Spookily, your posting was on OBP this morning. I appreciate any replies. Ronnie, Thank you for ti reply can you please clarify Sunderland "B" registration. I seem to be mis reading something. Three figure GR registration marks were issued by Sunderland from March until sometime in early Presumably, they were subdivided into geographical areas, E. However, that theory falls flat on its face if you take NCT as an example. All their vehicle were registered at their head office in Manors, which should have resulted in all vehicles carrying the same index, but they had examples of all three.
Government departments never make anything simple, and never explain anything by using one word when ten will do. How does that work then?! You take too much for granted in assuming that there is consistent rationale behind government decisions! Further to Stephen Howarth aboveI estimate that, assuming a straight numerical sequence was followed, GR would have been reached in mid My original question of GR with 3 numbers in would fit Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne with your reply Further to your input together with Stephen Howarth reply your estimate of GR being mid and that started with GR GR the number of which I received 24hrs.
No mention of "A" or " Coupld area registration. However, I can confirm what David says, that registering authorities did Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne allocate marks by subdividing their areas. In each registering authority was allocated one registration mark — for Newcastle it was BB.
When they ran out of numbers in they requested a second mark and were allocated TN some of these subsequent issues were specially requested for mnemonic reasons, and it seems likely that TN was for Tyne. When TN numbers ran out in they were allocated VK. By the time VK ran out in there were no more available marks, so they went into triple multiples.
Each authority decided in what sequence these would be issued, and Newcastle was fairly typical: Incidentally JVK was reserved for municipal vehicles as described by David. Ronnie, Can you please enlighten me where you gleamed the "B" from reference the Sunderland "B" area registration.
I remember old lists now disposed of using the letters BC or CC as appropriate after each designated place. Perhaps the list referred to here just uses "B" or Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne instead?
This convention appears to have coulle followed in respect of all English and Welsh issuing authorities. I would guess that B stands for Burgh, but the others have me foxed at the moment. The key to the codes may be on www. On the above website for instance, there is no acknowledgement that the letters XA to XF were ever allocated to London CC, in fact it is expressly stated that they had always been allocated to the post authorities to which they subsequently were. On the other hand Partick Burgh is acknowledged as having been an issuing authority, despite having ceased to be so from A definite mistake concerns the letter combination BF, Ashotn-under-Lyne is ascribed as having been allocated to Lindsey County Council.
Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne is no magic about this. The B means that it is a Borough Council issued registration, rather than a County. That it cannot be a geographic part of a borough is evidenced by for example FJ which was the only Exeter mark, and on the list, given as Exeter B. It does appear that the author of the website may himself not have understood why there were suffix letters on the list he derived his information from.
Durham, have no letter afterwards, although Durham is listed as County. Presumably so as not to be confused with Durham as a City. Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne sort-of explains it. However, that is only for England and Wales. In Scotland, where they had burghs instead of county boroughs, registration marks issued by burgh councils are described as "C or C" area.
From or in Scotland larger xouple or cities were granted powers equivalent to those of shire counties Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne them comparable in principle to modern unitary councils. In England and Wales these became known as County Boroughs, and in Scotland they were Burghs, but the term "County of a City", which had older origins, was attributed to some cities including Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen as mentioned by David.
As with the latest "combined authorities" including Greater Manchester, in some contexts the title of "County of a City" could bring specific benefits to a city, but otherwise the title was an honorary one. As far as vehicle registration was concerned, it simply allowed the authority to use a different label from Burgh or County Borough.
Thanks in hope everybody. Humbrol numbers 15 and I may be a bit out Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne translating that into the actual vehicle, though, because of the scale effect: I have mentioned on these pages before Nude women from colts neck nj a workmate who was building a model of a Southampton bus Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne his grandchildren and bought from the operator a Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne of the red used on Atlanteans and a tin of cream.
Someone else, a kit producer no longer trading, reported using West Midlands PTE Swingers seeking man in dallas tx, acquired in similar circumstances and with the same reaction. Williamsons Paint at Ripon have the codes.
I also have cans of brush paint of the blue available for sale. That sounds like a great idea John. Perchance there are no direct responses to your question you might be able to find the answer from one Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne a number of preservationists that have preserved a Royal Blue coach.
Meanwhile I hope the above is a useful start. Williamsons is a very good colour match, although there are other agents throughout the UK for their formulations. Long shot but has anyone a photo of the old bus terminal in Northumberland Square, North Shields.
A few pics from Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne on the site will appear. The scarcity of Longwell Green bodied anything can be explained by the size of the works which was miniscule compared to most bus bodybuilders. It is, not surprisingly, in Longwell Green — on A about yards west of the junction with Marsham Way. The coachworks also built delivery vans and lorry bodies as well as bus and coach bodies. In fact I would say PSVs were a minor part of its production.
I have lists of Longwell Green built bodies around this period if you are interested. LG carried out much re-bodying and refurbishing as well as new bodies so it can be confusing. They stopped PSV work in the Sex Dating in Dillon CO. Adult parties. sixties and concentrated on commercial vehicles and vans until I doubt it was used for garaging vehicles on the 39 or stage carriage services, as Ashton-unnder-Lyne were operated from Atherton or Hindley respectively and would end up at home at the end of the day.
Any more info anybody? Also any pictures of Canning Place office would be good. Was there a Ashton-umder-Lyne, at some stage, or was the Church Road information simply wrong?
Just as there may be people who know of me and possibly expecting some reply from me on this topic, I wish I could say that I knew the answer, but I dont!
Although I worked both as a conductor and ocuple, both in part time and full time roles, I was based at Swinton, so we had no duties coupld Liverpool. The nearest that Swinton crews would have normally worked would be Wigan. That said, during one weekend, I, with others, were asked to cover duties on the service 1, from Atherton. Hoping for a front loader, so that I Amateur mature 78609 pic get directions as I did Ashyon-under-Lyne know that route, I ended up with rear loader 77 and a part time guard, who also did not know the route.
So of course episodes of round the block several times in St Helens followed! So I hope that some one does know the answer to this thread. Both of these locations now sadly gone. Could someone remind me where the sixth depot was? Thanks for all comments. Alan Roughsedge was transferred from Liverpool to Atherton. I wonder though did it re-open after the war for either private hire or Tyne-Tees-Mersey pool coach stabling?
The new style timetable for Junei. Edge Lane as noted above in a reply. Strangely there is no depot shown on Bentley Rd in either a pre or post war old map. They either had the name of the road wrong or there was another Bentley Road in Liverpool 8.

There was no garage data etc for any of the municipals or LUT. Such details were included in subsequent editions, i. The first such edition was inwith the second and last edition in The group of services you mention 77 to 81 were nsw between Platt Bridge Hindley and Atherton depots. With all the associated dead mileage. I suspect I may have been confusing the LUT situation with that of Yorkshire Traction, who, in the early s, had three main depots and three fo ones, although I think that even the latter were a significant size, as bus depots go.
It just shows you how we can all be mistaken. You can never be sure if you remembering once reading a fact somewhere, or Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne imagining it!
Thinking about it with hindsight I suppose the Warrington group of services would not entail too much dead mileage by running in off the Leigh direction routes 50, 51 and Hindley Ashton-under-Lyen 60, especially those marked in the timetable as early works services. The North Western locals in Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne puzzle me though because that is quite a bit of dead mileage from Altrincham on 36, 37 or from Urmston on We definitely need ex-employees who worked there to tell us!
By only one bus was involved. The arrangement was terminated by Crosville after the demise of the North Western stage carriage operations. Hm, the debate continues about Warrington. I know as one of you said there was Ashton-uner-Lyne Warrington Corp depot in Lwr.
Bank St, but from what I saw it was mainly for older withdrawn or stored vehicles, as the new huge Wilderspool Causeway depot had been completed.
Ashton-under-Lyne News - BBC News
My memories persistent 50 years on! Were Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne memories real or did I see them Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne Buses Illustrated? In a booklet published jointly by the Manchester Transport Museum Society and the Omnibus Society in covering the history of the original North Western Road Car Company, the following text appears regarding Busty girlfriend wanted dispersal Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne the depots when the company was split.
Further to the correspondence on the North Western Road Car Company the original one of courseusing the Warrington Corporation Garage to outstation their vehicles working in the Warrington area, I have come across this picture in my files. In the nice photo posted by Stephen Howarth one of the buses in the background is not, I believe, a Warrington vehicle but probably an ex-Chester Foden Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne for spares. It is in the vicinity of what is now Garrison Close.
The plan titles the same premises as "Motor Repair Works". The buildings passed to Liverpool Carriage Co. The capacity of the garage was 24 vehicles, but half was sublet to G.
Buses for the Liverpool-Manchester express Adult Australia finder Australia were based there fromand after the company joined the Tyne-Tees-Mersey pool inthe garage housed not only LUT vehicles but those of any of the other pool partners which finished their journeys in Liverpool. The building was requisitioned by the military on 16 Octoberand not returned to LUT until June It was intended to close the garage from 25 Octbut because of difficulties with a sub-tenant, remained in use until 2 October Some records show some vehicles supplied new to JH Sims.
Sims eventually sold out to Carnell of Sheffield. What was the forename of the proprietor of Bradway if it was not JH Sims? Was there any family relationship between Sims and Carnell? To whom did Bradway eventually sell? Eric and John Sims were brothers who fell out and went on to form their own successful and totally independent operations.Free Pussy Goldendale
As I understand it, John priced himself out of the market and went into liquidation some time after Eric continued for some years more and it is him, I believe, who sold out to Trevor Carnell. I am not aware of any family connection between Sims and Carnell — but I stand to be corrected.
Thank you David Oldfield for that insight, I guessed you would be first to respond! Do you recall the livery of Bradway at all. I recollect a darker blue and ivory but cannot be certain. Does anyone have fleet lists for either of these operators? I cannot find any to Sims. More work has revealed that there are 16 discovered so far of which the seven earliest in my list Ashton-undder-Lyne listed as supplied to JH Sims, the other nine to Bradway.
My list for EH Sims is now 41 strong. Ashton-unnder-Lyne for the input. Any further observations would be welcomed. I Gmm on BLOW to do Ashton-unde-Lyne bit of extra research as well.
He was an early, and enthusiastic operator of turbo-charged Fords Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne and Rowning at least six. I have Ashton-ubder-Lyne recollections that Eric did much the same as Trevor Carnell and overstretched himself on payments for such new and expensive vehicles. I never knew where he kept his motors but, for many years, Eric kept his on premises opposite the PO Sorting Office, by the railway, at the bottom of Woodseats Road.
My school used Bradway Coaches, Horny girls in St louis local scout troop used Eric — so Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne travelled many miles with both — but my allegiance ended up with Walter Martin, with whom I became friendly, and his larger than life wife, June who I believe is still around and helping son John to run Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne business. Most of the vehicles listed by Mike Bennett are in couplf lists also, but not Housewives looking sex Palm Bay in the same fleets.
I do not have such a list to cross-check the Duple entries and BLOTW show these Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne as supplied to Sims, Sheffield so not much help in allocating them to coupke correct list. Can you shed any more light on Ashto-nunder-Lyne please Mike? Are yours personal observations or from some other list? All fascinating stuff though.
Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne I Look For Sexy Chat
Factually correct but, unless specifically attributed to Bradway Coaches, mention of Sims could, in theory, be either Eric or John. That was Cliff Neighbour. If you knew no different, you might think it was two different operators. Les, There is a bit more! I agree that this does seem unlikely.
Thanks Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne for the additional information. I have advised BLOTW that two separate companies are involved in the Sims, Sheffield, list and hope that his source Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne might resolve the story for us. I have now assembled partial fleet lists for these two operators which I will, in due course, supply to Peter for inclusion on this site if he so wishes. If Mike or anyone else cares to e-mail the details to Peter for onward transmission I will be happy to add into my lists fouple I submit the same to this site.
Crucial to Ashgon-under-Lyne list is which of the two brothers each was supplied when new. I attach Ashtin-under-Lyne lists for the two Sims brothers operations in Women seeking casual sex Arroyo Seco New Mexico.
Whilst every possible effort has been made to offer accurate Adhton-under-Lyne, if errors are found please do not be too harsh in your criticism. Writer will be pleased to receive any additional information for these lists. When he died, brother Eric took the reins alongside his own coupoe maintaining the livery. As Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne regular replacement of coaches continued,older models from both fleets were sold in turn or sometimes traded in Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne was KWA 89D, still in Bradway Ashtoon-under-Lyne.
I must thank Mike Bennett for supplying many vehicle numbers and Andrew Webster for rechecking much of the information in these lists, any errors are my own.

Well worth seeking Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne. Try looking on Ashhon-under-Lyne www. I get the impression that buses from more companies, corporations and independents flowed through Manchester than any other city in the UK That being the case, can we name all of them? Up to the formation of SELNEC and operating services between points, having a scheduled stop or terminating within the city boundaries: Operators regularly passing through without a scheduled stop: Barton, Sheffield United, Fishwick.
A host of coach operators, both local and from further afield could also be regularly seen and, by overlooking into Salford from just opposite the cathedral, buses from Leigh and Bolton Corporations would be visible. There was of course YellowaY Motor Services.
How could you forget them. As well as YellowaY itself, there were its joint operators: Associated Motorways to the south and south west — this was of course a pool of operators, not all of which, including Black and White, would operate regularly to Manchester. Barton were licensed to convey passengers between Manchester and Bakewell and points beyond on their X61 service to Nottingham, and the summer Saturday extension to Peterborough.
Fishwick operated any regular services through Manchester. Old age and all that!! Bolton may have been licenced to operate into Lower Mosley St but in Lady wants sex Provo visits to the bus station from the early s up toI never saw one of their vehicles there, nor have I ever seen a photo.
Fishwick regularly operated both through and into Manchester, as I said, without a scheduled stop. Private hires to theatres, Belle Vue and venues beyond the city brought the vehicles into the city. Phil, I did wonder whether Bolton actually operated on the X In this case Southdown was licensed in its own name, rather than as a constituent of Associated Motorways as in the case of the joint Yelloway services.
I know of Silver Star later Wilts and Dorset. Did Bere Regis also work some? Another one in the back of my mind and I would certainly stand to Lime Ridge Wisconsin teens full of cum Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne on this one could have been Maidstone and District from Chatham. David S, coach operators abounded at weekends in the s carrying National Servicemen on weekend leave.
At this remove it would be difficult to do a comprehensive list. Even a list from the late s would need a great deal of research. Such a variety of liveries, chassis and body makes. What a dream for bus enthusiasts living in that part of the world.
But this pales in comparison! When I lived in Hull I travelled on trolley buses frequently, their acceleration was Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne good. When they were slowing down by braking was any of the energy Ashton-ubder-Lyne from this fed back into the overhead electricity supply? Technically it can be quite a difficult thing to do as the energy has to go somewhere. So you had to use it in the system and that meant another vehicle had to be accelerating at the same time.
What makes the control more difficult is that you cannot influence what the other vehicle is doing and if it suddenly decides to stop taking power you have to find somewhere for the energy to go — instantly.
This can be controlled much more easily nowadays with Gj Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne, but more traditional systems struggled to control the transient voltages that occur at times of rapid Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne. There were Regenerative trolleybuses, Bradford notably having them. The long Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne meant that the energy saving could be greater and also the benefits of reduced friction brake wear were greater.
This caused Blenheim-SC hot wife personals English Electric Company and Bradford Corporation in to Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne a new Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne braking system called Series Dynamic and Rheostatic SD which dissipated the braking energy in resistor banks on the trolleybus. These same resistor banks were part of the traction motor starting circuits so the clever bit was the contactor switching arrangements when the ocuple pedal was applied.
The pioneer bus was major success and Bradford never ordered any more regenerative vehicles. In Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne all their pre-war trolleybuses had regenerative control and their war-time and post war trolleybuses had a version of the EEC SD system called Special Regulated Field. I agree with David B that old regenerative coupel caused a lot of problems and only now with electronics do modern tram and railway systems use regenerative braking again.
The big plus is reduced brake-pad wear and energy savings. I am still mourning the passing of this fine old bus company, which revives so many memories for me of the early post war period. I would like to establish a fleet list from the company start up in to aboutwhen my personal bus interests begin to wane.
Does anyone have a list already, or know of the existence of one, as it seems to be conspicuous by its absence as far as the usual sources go? I seem to recall a publication some years ago, but cannot trace it. I know there is a lot of Pennine interest, so hopefully, some collective Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne could produce such a list, past if necessary, to satisfy all tastes!
You may already have these www. Someone Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne told me that it was ex SHMD.

Steve, I have a note in my family history of R. Bob Carney purchased a coach VME The Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne war ranges of Tilling-Stevens there is a hyphen between the two words were all single deckers. This was supplemented in September by the flat framed L6PA7, a lighter weight chassis with the Perkins P6 engine for full fronted bodies of about 32 seats. Essentially a lengthened L6PA7, this was Ashton-undef-Lyne for full fronted bodywork for up to 40 passengers, and employed the then very new Meadows 4DC engine, a compact unit incorporating counter rotating shafts to minimise engine vibration.
This must have swallowed up some of the power because the output from 5. At the end of the Maidstone firm sold Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne to the Rootes group. Tilling-Stevens and Vulcan vehicles were finally withdrawn from manufacture inbut many lingered on unsold by dealers for a few subsequent years.

Does anyone know if any other bodybuilders than Plaxton bodied the Seddon Mark 11 chassis for UK operators. I have found the following registrations: I Gmm a picture of SMB at Ashhton-under-Lyne The Seddon Mark 11 was a nww rare beast in the UK, though, as was the case with most Seddon psvs, it was more successful overseas. The engine, fitted vertically under the floor amidships, was the 5. A revised version of the R6 gave the reduced output of bhp at rpm, but the dire reputation of the engine never recovered.
The shorter 26 ft. The Seddon took us on a day trip to Wookey Hole, and I did take a picture of Ashton-underr-Lyne coach, but the negative sadly went Ashtoj-under-Lyne during family removals when I lived elsewhere.

Does anyone know why this vehicle had such an unusual arrangement? Did you mean a rear window arrangement like this Burlingham bodied Tiger Cub? Chris, are you able to identify the actual episode?
You may recognise the storyline from the selection here. There is some information here: The ECW drawings for some versions of the proposed single deck bodies on the Bristol N chassis also showed a similar arrangement, but those were never built!

I would agree that looks to be the prime suspect in this case. My main interest is establishing the body make but also interested in any other details, including DC 2 which I presume was registered AKR ?
I have been told that this bus was requisitioned during the war and converted for use as an ambulance but have no other details. My initial reaction to the questions posed about this bus was to look in the coupl Cambridge 1 by Paul Carter, an acknowledged authority on East Anglian operators.
Unfortunately, the author is uncharacteristically shy about this Dennis Ace, simply mentioning its previous life with London Transport, and referring only its 20 seat bodywork without naming the manufacturer. Both Aces dated from By comparison, the contemporary Ace body by Harrington is much more stylish: In their later years these little machines were converted to open toppers for the Hastings seafront service: Apologies for photographic technique!
What an interesting view from Ian! My parents once bought me a bike in the Lancaster branch of that firm. Was it the same firm as Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne sells household appliances and cameras, or pure coincidence that they have the same name? See early days in this. I have just come across the model of this unusual looking bus but with only a small number of these double decker types being built and the problems they had I am assuming they would be out of service by the period I am modelling.
I am looking at buses and operators for my model railway which is based between Leeds and Tadcaster. Is there anywhere that I can get a route list and route numbers so I can make correct Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne blinds? I am a train-buff but not a bus-buff! I am assuming that the following operators would be possibles in the area mentioned.
Any observations or comments you think helpful would be gratefully received. As a youngster I lived in Wakefield, so West Riding buses were the familiar scene. I am all for preserving these little bits of history. Phil, The old A64 between Leeds and Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne your possibilities are almost endless! Just about every coach operator in East Lancashire and West Yorkshire would have passed along it at some time on private hires or excursions to either York or the coastal resorts.
The companies you mention would certainly have covered the road. WYRCC was a subsidiary of a nationalised group whose Ashton-ubder-Lyne were either red or green. By the way, take care regarding the scales of the models.
Some are available in different scales 1: This service ran from Leeds to Aberford via Seacroft and Barwick. Burlingham Seagull coach built Photo: This model would Ashton-under-Lyme appropriate for a number of different operators Axhton-under-Lyne the area. Hebble also operated the type. Some of the other contributors would be able to help further regarding the Leeds City Transport buses. Both were withdrawn in David, John, Peter, I am overwhelmed by your kind and very quick responses.
There is plenty for me to go at there. I will enjoy looking at the leads you Ashton-under-LLyne given me and following up with the research. I bought the Leyland PD1 in Samuel Ledgard colours a couple of weeks ago suitably begrimed and weathered as the first bus for the project, which will Ashton-umder-Lyne a long term coupke. I used to see these when I took the train from Wakefield to Leeds Central train-spotting and then used to walk over to City station to see what was going on there.
The Ledgards seemed a bit different than the bigger operators standing out Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne the different livery, just as County Motors did in Wakefield bus station. I would be taken on these trips by my dad and we would board a Law Brothers coach at Midland station in Sheffield at least once G month and go off on a days tour 7. Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne seem to remember a Bedford OB in green and cream colours… certainly the colours are correct but the bus type may be erroneous.
I used to get coach sick though, but after Hot want sex tonight Plymouth first couple of times the driver cured this by always sitting me and dad in the seat immediately aft of the stairs so that I was not staring at a seat back but looking through the front screen and with something to engage my attention I forgot about the rolling motion of the bus and the driver was not obliged to stop a couple of times as he had to do on the first trips.
Thank you all again for getting me off the starting blocks. It Horny girls Hite Utah in the fifties or sixties but various bits remain. A station was added around at Pendas Way presumably to serve the Vickers tank factory.
Can anyone help with a reliable date for the above event please? Whitsuntide would seem to be a possibility. I am trying to date some photographs. Unfortunately the ones I have of this particular rally are not brilliant but they might interest a keen enthusiast and I am happy for anyone to have copies. I am trying to get pictures of British period in Burma, motor vehicle license plates, which is proving very hard to do.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give. Hi Lady seeking hot sex FL Auburndale 33823 I wish I could help but, like you, I cannot find anything much. I have a number of books dealing with British Burma but none show any cars that have clear numbers. One booklet entitled "Electric Traction in the Burmese Capital" by Robert Sechler concerns trams and trolleybuses effectively eliminated by the Japanese in However, there is only one photo showing a Thorneycroft bus with the registration RA I think.Housewives Looking Casual Sex Milbank South Dakota
There is, of course, a photo of Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne Burmese bus on this site — www. I was always under the impression that "R" equals Rangoon, and "M" equals Mandalay, but have no proof.
I also found this photo during a web search but inevitably someone is obscuring the full plate. Is it the one from the Keighley Bus Museum.? I am doing a local history book and was just wondering if any one has a photo of the Gk Number 80 Luttrellstown bus which figured so largely in Ashton-under-Lnye lives of those living in Clonsilla, Strawberry Beds area especially, or even a photo of the bus type — it was red and cream and the interior seating had a grey gingham pattern.
Mary, I have little knowledge or pics to help you although I did find Azhton-under-Lyne service mentioned on the net. It may help others here if you had any dates Ashton-jnder-Lyne mind for your local history.
Someone will know which old company had red livery and when… like the UK, there was not then the sameness. Not only does Shane have a detailed lists of buses in Dublin and Ireland generally with some photographs but he also coyple links to other sites which might be useful to you.
Most of the provincial busses were red and cream rather than the blue and cream buses operated on the Dublin city services. A picture may be seen here: I am looking to buy a Lodekka Looking for older Hillsboro Oregon woman4050 with a rear door but anything considered, if anybody knows of one please get in touch through this site.
I know it is not a rear door but this is for sale. Can anyone help with info on the Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne coach in Coventry Transport Museum it has a Manchester registration, I would like to know the original owner? Thanks for any help. Here are some photos of the coach with the Coventry Museum: But a Trans-United product it certainly is, and the only one of this make still in existence.
The PSV Circle give its history as follows: Coulpe understand that the Hartley and Timperley companies were Aston-under-Lyne subsidiaries, maybe with Hackett. Thanks David for the full ownership details. Albion were the only other British maker to offer Petrol Engined half-cabs post-war and although theirs were built to an overwhelming majority went for export. I recently joined a Facebook page "Dear Auld Glasgow Toon" mainly because it has a photo of the orange, cream and green Glasgow buses as its cover photo.
I commented on the site that they were similar to the old Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne buses though no doubt many of your members could point out the differences! Can any of your members help? I am not aware of other operators using this same livery but, as often on these pages, I await correction! Bill Lewis brought the shade of red used on the Atlanteans with him from Manchester.
They liked what they saw and adopted it as their own livery to trundle around the Yorkshire Dales. No, they were not exSouthdown vehicles. You may well be correct about the manager change in Glasgow Pete, but there was also the question of a Glasgow painted AEC demonstrator sent to Halifax which really impressed them.
Interested too in your Pennine comments as orange was used well beforealthough in different combinations with other colours, which is probably what you meant anyway! John, the article I have in mind Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne published in March — the copy I have in front of me even has an orange cover!
There were two later incarnations of this colour scheme, both traceable to the Halifax version. Geoffrey Hilditch, who had been manager at Halifax, took on a role with Cynon Valley District Council and with him he brought the colour scheme which replaced the dark ckuple and white livery they were using. Back in Halifax, again in the post-deregulation era, Tony Blackman set up a Ashron-under-Lyne operation called Halifax Joint Committee which used the Halifax livery. This ran from to It is thought that, during negotiations with AEC for the supply of new double deckers, Mr Walter Theodore Young, the then General Manager who had been appointed in from a previous post in Dundee, not Glasgow Ashton-ubder-Lyne Councillor Gledhill of the Transport Committee came across one of the prototype Regents in Glasgow colours, GEwhich spent some time during as a demonstrator.
The Halifax Corporation General Manager at the time of the adoption of the green, orange and cream livery was Walter Lady wants casual sex Moses Lake North Young, who most certainly had not been at Glasgow previously.
Hall had brought this livery with him from his previous post at Wigan, then adopted it Woman seeking sex Smithtown his subsequent post at Portsmouth.
It Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne not strictly true to say that the powers that be at Halifax adopted the green, orange and cream livery having operated a demonstrator painted in Glasgow colours. It Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne believed that Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne original intention had been for them to be in the dark Bergen fuck girl livery, but at some point during their construction it seems that members of the Transport Committee had then encountered a bus in Glasgow livery maybe at an exhibition — quite possibly MTwhich had subsequently been repainted into Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne livery for a period of demonstration in that city.
They were impressed by the colours and had their own forthcoming Regents painted in a similar fashion. The livery Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne continued with variations to the layout until the PTE takeover in Having scrolled down from the kind answers given above under the Leeds Model header I found this thread which stirred the old memory cells a little. I Ashton-undsr-Lyne seeing the occasional orange bus in Pond Street bus station in Sheffield. This would be prior towhen I would have been nine years old, because we left Sheffield then to live in Wakefield.
It certainly had other colours as well as the orange and it stood out Gm couple new to Ashton-under-Lyne the cream and dark blue of the Sheffield fleet. I seem to remember, though how accurately at this time distance is debatable, asking my parents what it was, and something… "UNITED" comes to mind at their reply. Or was it a Halifax through service? Your orange bus sounds like East Midlands in that location- a wonderful orange "chrome yellow" brown and cream which later changed to a drab maroon.
However, this is the interesting bit… if you follow this site you will find reference to the fact that East Midlands were originally Underwoods of Clowne, an offshoot of United from… not Darlington we are told… but Lowestoft! Is it possible that the livery Phil refers to could be the old East Midland livery?
