Why not embed the photos into a post for people to see on here instead of plugging the blog?

or post links to the flickr.

Because

A. I don't have permission to post the photos here.

B. Why are you picking on me for plugging as I hardly ever do and many others do on a regular basis.

C. How would posting link to Flickr (where there is no text report) be any different! :P

We have many members who post links to their blogs/flickrs/other sites and we have no problem with this. If you (or any other member) doesn't agree with this or would like to discuss this please email me/Andy/Suzy on admins@atvbf.co.uk

Now I know that the event is titled "London 2012" but other venues are being used, however it appears that they may not be receiving the same quality of transport.

Games transport to the Ricoh (sorry City of Coventry) Stadium comprised a variety of de Courcey Travel, Green Bus and National Express West Midlands vehicles on 3rd August, including MCW Metrobus E469SON which is celebrating it's 24th year in service (that's 7 summer Olympics!).  Deserves a medal itself.
