Aerial view of the Busway track
« on: May 11, 2009, 12:06:29 PM »
As a lover of aerial photography books I saw an interesting picture of a section of the busway in the book 'Britain from Above' published to accompany the BBC TV series. (Page 191). It won't be everyone's cup of tea but thought I would mention it.

Also there is one of Watford Gap services with a Megabus coach and a Stagecoach coach on the coach park.

AAW!!!  :'( I thought you'd got a link to an aerial view!

Never mind here's a Google street view of  Cowley Road.

Never ask a dustman to talk shop.
He will only talk a load of rubbish!
