Well having gone to bed at gone 3am Saturday morning, with the idea of going to Cardiff in mind for this weekend, it's unsurprising that when my alarm went off at 07:00, I deactivated the thing and went straight back to sleep. That was Cardiff out the window for a start. Quite a bit later than planned, I eventually get up at around half past 12, when, shortly after I received a phone call to say there had been a "collision" in Paignton Town Centre and that Air Ambulance was in attendance, and Great Western Road was shut. ( Read more about it here ON THE HERALD EXPRESS WEBSITE ) so I headed into town on Trident 18384 MX55KSE, which has recently returned from RTA damage repair itself.
|ex-Wales 47520 in it's new "FOX" branding - very smart indeed!|
|"The Beast" 17003 in White Rock on the route 22!|
|Trident 18383, a really rare type to work the FOX!|
Optare Solos! The Trident took the steep hills in it's stride, better than the Optares in fact, however the tight turns and parked cars proved difficult for the deckers. Nevertheless, we got there (and back!).
