Cambridge Area Bus Users / Dr Simon Norton 1952-2019
« Last post by TCD813 on Yesterday at 04:41:37 PM »
Forum members who are, or have been, involved in any transport campaigns may well have rubbed shoulders – or worked in organisations with – Simon Norton, who died recently, just days short of his 67th birthday.

An appreciation of Simon is available on the Cambridge Area Bus Users website here: Simon Norton 1952-2019.

The blogpost has links to many other tributes to Simon.

The Cambridge Area Bus Users web-manager has set the blogpost open for (pre-moderated) comments.

35104 was involved in a crash today which happened on the roundabout between Topmoor Way and Fulbridge Road at 11.47am. It involved the bus and a silver Ford Galaxy

I hope everybody was ok. The damage doesn't look too bad from the picture. There's plenty of withdrawn Darts at Bedford to pinch the parts off to rebuild the front end should Stagecoach decide it's worth doing on a 13 year old vehicle. Then again its engine could be used to resurrect one of the withdrawn darts as was done when 34879 donated its engine to 35104

So at 10.15 this morning (Friday) there were a couple of guys handing out leaflets for the city bit of the "Pedigree" service. And it looks as though outbound calls at the Railway Station will be at Bay 2, for both P and U services. This would be a change for the U (if true). No sign of this being recorded on Traveline. And I wonder whether it will feed through to apps and Real Time Displays? Only time will tell...

On Wednesday after working from home I did 37432 into town on the 9 and returned home with 37437 on the 1830 81. Buses noted from my vantage point were:

1 - 34830
2 - 18419, 19698, 37431 (to Flitwick)
4 - 34832, 36935
5 - 18423, 18424, 37437
9 - 27644, 36045, 37432
9A - 19892, 19893
9B - 18336, 19701, 19889, 27644
50 - 39684
51 - 37435
53 - 19698, 37434
81 - 19888, 34428, 34828, 37437
W7 - 28632, 53702, 53705, 53708

Thursday I left a bit later to cover the 0854 9B which was only 3 late with 19701 and 374333 did the 0911 6. Other stuff viewed were 37437 on a 73, 34828 on a 3, 18419 on a 53, 19699 on the 0900 81, 27642 on the 0905 41, 18424 on the 0910 9A and 27644 on the 0915 73. I left late from the office and covered the inbound 50 which produced winner 39681 which then went on to form the 1810 50 back whilst I did the 1810 9A with 34428.

This morning I covered the same two services as yesterday which yielded 19892 on the 9B and 37438 on the 0911 6. Others viewed were 18419 and 18424 on 1's, 37431 on a 2, 37437 on a 53, 27646 on the 0905 41, 19700 on the 0915 51 and 34424 on the 0915 73.

Am I alone in finding it odd that the outbound service uses a different stop (Bay 2) at the Railway Station from Whippet's "U" (Bay 1)? At least they both use Bay 8 on the inbound service...
