I saw some very healthy loading screen on 147 today almost full leaving Halesowen, typical!
I saw a woosh bus in Halesowen with loads of staff on board. It was the minibus type of things. Any links?

In answer to your first question as I answered your second one straight away, the buses for 147, and 360 are to be 3 former First MR Solos from Worcester either on Hire or Bought.

I must admit, it is a real shame that we've now lost the link to Worcester from Halesowen. It also seems rather silly to only go as far as Catshill, makes more sense to extend to Catshill. I would imagine its probably a funding issue.

Its a shame that Worcestershire CC couldn't have subsidised the existing First 147 service between Halesowen and Catshill, therefore allowing the commercial link to Worcester to continue - bearing in mind that this is more or less the same as the 144A until Catshill.

I have a feeling the 147 may end up being curtailed to only operate between Romsley and Halesowen, or something along those lines.  :-\
