A Golden Year!

Interior of 15932 on the first ever trip in service
As some of you will know, today (30th September 2013) marks a year of Stagecoach South West's Gold operation. A new service between Torquay - Paignton - Totnes - Dartmouth/Plymouth was launched in competition with First's existing X80/X81 with a half hourly service between Torquay & Totnes, and hourly between Totnes and Dartmouth or Plymouth. The service started with nine 63 plate Scania N230UD/Enviro400's numbered 15924-32 fitted to standard Gold Specification of leather seats, Wi-Fi and carpeted walls.

A year on, and the service is now half hourly to Plymouth (with hourly connections at
Totnes for Dartmouth) and the nine 63 reg Scanias have been joined by 3 14 plate's, YN14OWO/P/R 15961-3 back in May. YN14OWR/P 15962/3 are branded slightly different to the other 10, carrying "English Riviera" branding, allowing the pair to be used on the Paignton - Exeter X46 service when not needed on "GOLD".

Summer Specialties!

Apologies that it's been a while since my last post, however I've not had a great deal of time to be sat at home blogging. I've actually been so much busier this Summer Holiday than ever before, so I decided just to leave the blog and return with a round up of everything at the end!

For once, there has actually been a long-ish period of time where the weather has held up a decent standard, allowing some decent photos and pleasant days out 'vegging'. I have done more than a fair share of very good trips this Summer, chasing various buses and trains that either have been local to me once upon a time, or that I've always fancied a go on.

Numbers:
Well I'm quite impressed with this years rail mileage, between 23rd July and 6th September it stands at a rather impressive (even if I say so myself) 4188m & 70ch (Chains measures 66 feet or 22 yards) with a total of 2 hours and 59 minutes worth of delay at an average speed of 51.1Mph compared to Summer Holiday 2013s total which came to 2446m & 16ch with a total of 29 minutes of delay at an average speed of 45.2mph.

I have also made 250 bus journeys between 24th July and 6th September in various parts of the country which I'll list below the rest of the post!

So what trips have I done?
Well, I'm not going to list everything as you can probably work it out from the bus log but what I will do is list the best trips and a little detail about each.

To kick off the holidays, I did a few trips within Devon and of course the Crosville Motor Services open event back at the end of July, aswell. The first of the big trips came on Saturday 2nd August which saw me travel by National Express overnight to London, before racing over to St Pancras to catch one of Southeastern's Class 395 "Javelin" units over to Ashford International. After catching a Class 378 over to Canterbury, I was somewhat excited by sighting about 6 Olympians in the space of 10-15 minutes. I rode on 4 Olympians, and 2 Volvo B10M's (one on a NC Paladin body and the other an Alexander PS). I also had a trip on a Transbus Trident ALX400 , a Transbus Enviro300 and a pair of Alexander Dennis Enviro400's, all of which aren't really worth bothering over! 

With money amounts not looking to hopeful, I decided the best option for the second and third week of the holiday would be to purchase a "Freedom of the South West" rail rover, which for Child price of £54 allows 8 in 15 days of rail travel within the boundaries of Penzance , Great Malvern , Cardiff , Swindon & Portsmouth. So that was me occupied as follows for two weeks:
 11th August - a rail trip to Salisbury to catch up with Wilts & Dorset's new vehicles, then onto Lymington Pier via Southampton and then up to Castle Cary via Weymouth before heading straight back down to Newton Abbot by means of HST!

12th August saw me on a short bash to Taunton and then to Plymouth and back to Paignton, giving me a chance to meet a friend from the North who was briefly down in the South West.

13th August was a bash to Cardiff to once again have a go on Arriva Trains Wales' Pacer units on the Valley lines, as well as a short photography session in Merthyr Tydfil giving me the chance to photograph Stagecoach's only Wright Streetlites and the Optare Solo SR's they have there. I came home via XC 170 to Cheltenham Spa and then a Voyager down from there! Also realized during the day, that I had done another Cardiff trip exactly a year ago to that day, strange, eh?


Taking a break from the FOTSW on Saturday 16th August, I had a trip up to Lincoln which I had got cheap fares for a few months back where I met Daniel Heppenstall (Daniels Bus Videos on youtube) and had a go on some of Stagecoach East Midlands' Olympians , MAN/ALX300s and Plaxton President bodied Transbus Tridents which are sister to those that used to come to Devon every year on loan from Oxford!

Tuesday 19th August, I met a friend who was staying in Cornwall from Derbyshire, so we spent the day on the Cornish Branch lines, as well as a nice dose of First Great Western 57 haulage from Newton Abbot to Penzance behind 57603 and a bash on Firsts B10M 38004 D704GHY on the 17B!
After an unintentional sleep in on the following day, I ended up going out late so I ended up going for a quick trip to Swindon, before returning via Newport which made for a nice afternoon out. Not bad considering it was completely spur of the moment planned!

Thursday 21st August, I decided it was time to go for a run around the Solent, so after catching the train to Portsmouth Harbour via Salisbury, I bashed a First Wright Streetlite to Fareham where I caught one of First's very nice "Eclipse" branded Volvo B7RLE's to Gosport Ferry, and another back. Just with that, a Scania Omnicity pulled in heading for Southampton so after a trip on that and a run around Southampton on various buses, I had a go on a very smart Wheelers Connect Wright Meridian to Romsey, where I then made my way home via Westbury.

Using my Freedom of the South West as far as Salisbury, and a bargain £7 Summer offer return to London Waterloo, I decided to go and have one last go on Stagecoach London's TA1 S801BWC (the first Trident in service in Britain) before she was withdrawn, painted into white/stripes and sent on long term loan to Brooklands Bus Museum as a preserved vehicle. Friday 22nd August also happened to be the day of the Central line Tube Strikes which made for an excellent day. Was somewhat strange seeing Scania/E400s , old Tridents, Volvo Olympians and Bendi-coaches in a variety of liveries thrashing through London, working alongside the "normal" stock.



A long talked/thought about and never done trip was finally accomplished on Saturday 23rd August, that being a nice bash to the West Midlands. With my Freedom of the South West, I could get to Cheltenham Spa and then just purchase a return to Birmingham New Street at £11.75 so was very decently priced! I was pleasantly surprised at the ticket value up in the Midlands, £4.20 (If I recall correctly) for a Child Network Daytripper, which covered all of the West Midlands almost on any bus, train or tram! I enjoyed a Greenbus ex-Metroline Trident and DAF DB250/Optare Spectra aswell as an unexpected find in the form of a NXWM Volvo B10L and of course the dying breed in Coventry, the Mercedes O405N Integrals which are very nice indeed! 
The final of the big trips, and by far and away one of the best this Summer was Saturday 6th September's bash to Chesterfield & Sheffield. After an overnight ride to Heathrow Airport on a National Express Volvo B9R, I had a Scania Omnicity DD to Terminal 5 on the N9 (my first ever night bus too!) and then one of my favorites, Abellio's YN51Kxx Tridents on the 350 to Hayes & Harlington. I then made my way to St Pancras by means of train & Tube before riding an East Midlands Trains 222 up to Chesterfield. I stuck around to see a trio of DRS Class 20's at the station, before having to go and dry my camera out using the Toilet Hand-dryers after getting rather wet photographing them! I then paid a visit to Stagecoach Chesterfield's bus depot where 6 (including two that are currently on loan to Sheffield) former South West Dennis Trident/ALX400s are now based. These being 17004/7/8/9 S804/7-9BWC and 17050/2 T650/2KPU. I was very kindly shown around the depot by Manager Shayne Howarth, before being allowed to program a couple to bits onto the destination display of my favorite, 17009 so I went for "Kameron" and my local route "22 Roselands via Paignton & Zoo" and then photographed the bus just outside of the depot buildings which added a great touch to the day! A massive thanks to Shayne again for that! I then proceeded onto Sheffield by means of Northern Rail's 158901 where I met a friend who lives locally to bash TM Travel Leyland Olympian J353BSH , a few First Bus Volvo B10BLE's , a Volvo B9TL and one of the Stagecoach Tram replacement loans, 17008 S808BWC. I then headed back home direct on a Cross Country Voyager unit, very tired after a fantastic day! 

After a much needed rest on the Sunday, I sadly had to return to crappy old school yesterday which brought an end to a fabulous 6 weeks off (although it felt like 6 days, the speed it went by!) and many great trips, not all of which were mentioned. Thanks to everyone who I've met this Summer, some of whom I had met before and others it was the first time I'd met them :-) 

I also hope to attend Showbus and continue with trips until the weather becomes too awful (if it does!)...
