Small Japanese bus station
« on: February 10, 2019, 10:41:47 AM »
I discovered this video on You Tube of a small very confined and most busy bus station outside a railway station in Japan (Uenohara station, Yamanashi Prefecture).

The marshall constantly blows a whistle to which the drivers respond before smartly anchoring up as they reverse towards a stone wall.

Something different to watch on a wet Sunday morning!

Would this be a good way of increasing the capacity of Cambridge‘a Drummer Street bus station?
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
