Many fun roads here in Norway. Curvy and tight. Ofcourse, this aint as much fun for buses and truckers.

Anyway, this is from Haukeliekspressen here in Norway. This is about an 8 hour drive from Haugesund on the west coast to Oslo in the east. The bus crosses the country in land over a mountain.
Notice at the 1:00 minute mark that the bus driver extract the mirror due to the narrow road:

A quick video of one of my favourite routes, Go North East's X43, using a Volvo B7TL Plaxton President. The route operates between the Metrocentre, the 2nd largest shopping centre in the UK, and Stanley, a relatively populous town outside of Durham City:

National Express West Midlands Platinum Enviro 400 MMC 6750 on Route 934 (part 1)

Now that thing sounds good! Nice throaty engine with a good reverb to it, and a lovely chorus of axle and retarder whines to boot.

Part 2 of the video sees it going through a "limited stop" part of the route.

Thats not even the full experience of the route. Its supposed to have stop annoucements but they don't seem to work properly. However, I recorded the X51 on my way back (considering I have been to Walsall, Great Barr, Erdington and Sutton Coldfield today) and that had annoucements.

Bus is 6738. I recorded this from the front thinking that stop annoucements wouldn't work I have only done the route once recently (and someone else told me where to get off)

Time to ride shotgun in this vid :D Here's First Somerset & Avon's 32007, an Alexander ALX400 bodied Volvo B7TL. New to First Bristol in 2000. Filmed running dead to Bath's Weston Island depot, via the Keynsham bypass (the depot is actually on its own island if you're interested)

Yeah, the only problem with the MMC Euro-6 is its a little under-powered and struggles up the slightest hill.

The 4th and 5th B7RLEs I have been on! Both are on route 301 operated by NXWM Walsall Bus Garage, however Rotala/Diamond also operate the route.

The first video shows National Express West Midlands 1752 from Walsall Bus Station to Bloxwich (the route passes Walsall Bus Garage, it's where the man in NX hi vis gets off). I also show the bus leaving the Mossley terminus.

 

On the way back to Walsall Bus Station, where I walked to Walsall Bradford Place to catch the 4M to West Bromwich and then got another 4M there to Merry Hill and afterwards filmed 44 minutes on Trident 4437, I caught National Express West Midlands B7RLE 1754. This is a shorter video due to traffic, from Mossley Terminus.
