    Anybody remember the Bristol VR ?

    This particular bus is owned by the Cardiff Transport Preservation Group. It was photographed by myself at Porth Depot in March 2016. It had just been for its annual MOT.

    Alex Cars (actually coaches not cars lol) of Cirencester has one of these they use for their annual charity day mystery tour. Last one was £15 per ticket the proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Yes i remember the Bristol VR, Ribble bus had them, and then North Western (1986) took over and the Bristol VR lasted until the mid 90s.

    BELOW 002 (EJI 8221) is seen here at the WELB’s former depot at Mountfield Road, Omagh. Following accident damage, this vehicle has received a much simplified front panel.

    The 3 T-types were frequent visitors to Belfast when new, and EJI 9206 is seen in Glengall Street during the early 1980s.

    My dad used to drive a bus exactly like this one in the late 60s-early 70s, he worked out of Weaste bus depot in Manchester, he had six kids so had to quit shift work but he always spoke fondly of his days as a bus driver

    We had these buses plying Sydney streets in the 70s/80s. Not sure but I think they were the Brit Leyland model.
    The last Atlantean double-decked buses were decomissioned in 1986.
