4709 is about to go onto the 3 for this afternoon. Apparently this will be it's last day at Tamworth I'm told.

Correct, it's MOT expires tomorrow where it'll then be moved to Luton

Any plan for refurbished buses on the 3/3A still seems to be in the future. Today there were extremes - Sapphire Citaro 3022 on the 3A and Dart 2161 on the 3! 4709 is tucked away at the side of the garage.

Today 4200 worked the last day of 3A clockwise circulars and 2211 the 3 anticlockwise. The route reverts to the old way of working tomorrow with a 20 minute interval. The leaflet says 15 minutes in error and the 3 has arrows on the route map which shouldn't be there!

I drove the last one today and the timetable says every 15 mins as it for some reason includes the 2's

Tamworth has 10 double deckers, all of which are needed for the weekday 15 minute interval service. The Saturday 20 minute interval service needs 8, so that's where the other two went!

In the '70s I lived in Coleshill Street in Sutton and the passing ex-Midland Red D9s on the 110 used to be projected onto my bedroom ceiling through a gap at the top of the curtains on a sunny day! I used to go and see them in Leicester after they came off the 110.

Lovely buses. Mind you I nearly got run over by one back in the day after the brakes failed on Sutton New Road the poor old driver pulling for all he was worth on the hand brake! Luckily I just got out of the way in time live to tell the tale!!

It's not a bad little bus to be fair!
