General Video's of real busroutes

I caught this Dart at Cribbs Causeway operating the 73 to the Centre. This is always operated by B9TLs so I had to take an extended lunch break to jump on this bus! (We only have 6 step entry Darts left :( )

And yes, the doors are a bit knackered...

Thanks! It's unique to see Dennis Darts on any route down here due to the low number of them and because they're not low-floor buses. At the start of the year routes 4, 5, 36 and 309 were solely operated by these, but where so many have been scraped this year it's very rare they make an appearance on any route. But then again, they are a year younger than me!

Here's 32279, a TransBus ALX400 bodied Volvo B7TL I caught at Cribbs Causeway on the way into work this morning on the 75 Hengrove Depot. This is the only ALX400 based at HE, its sister vehicles are based at LH and BH.

Here's one I took earlier this year. This is 32702, an ELC Loylne bodied Dennis Trident travelling along Bath Road. As of last month, the whole batch now operate with First Devon & Cornwall :( You really did have to thrash them to get any decent performance out of them :D

I always think that the drivers in the Articulated busses always go faster then in the normal type busses for some strange reason. :P

This bus was one of a bunch rebodied when in service with King Bros. It originally had a PMC MkI body from 1977 but was rebodied by Coachworks in 1999. It is an ex Sydney Buses 1842, now Telford's TV 6238.

Here's another B7TL I filmed travelling from, you guessed it, Cribbs Causeway! :D (Where I catch them so early in the morning no one else is on the bus which makes it perfect for recording). I really do like the ZF gearboxes the newer B7TLs use.

There was an air leak somewhere which was causing that whistling sound...
