Problems fixed?

Got hold of this recently. It's a guide to driving a bus on the 409 service? Anyone who uses it surely knows that it's had it's problems. I have seen the gaps in service whilst being in Ashton and recently noticed i lot of older buses on the route. This guide tells drivers how to answer customer complaints and whats being done for the route. Will see if anything improves. But with oldham town centre being held to ransome by metrolink works and Oldham first depot suffering staffing shortages i doubt it will be anytime soon.

New buses

Nice to see more upto date First buses at Dukinfield at the moment. It seems the 419 and newly acquired 41 now have the new single deck hybrid things on them. Very wet week in ashton this week with today no exception. Got 9 days holiday after today to look forward to though. Not much else happening at the moment. A few major service changes on the way but will mention more of this very soon.

So different.

Just cycling home from work. It's been a very mixed day today but ended well. Thought i'd snap this horrid looking sky. Should just get home before it comes.
