Suzy’s Old Timetable Archive News

Suzy’s Old Timetable Archive News
It’s been a wee while since I have done an update about the Archive Timetables, but there is a lot to say.  As of this week (well yesterday once getting all server settings up) I now have a webpage for the Archive at http://suzysoldtimetables.co.uk/ as well as a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Suzys-Old-Timetable-Archive-108509935180252 (Twitter to follow once I can find to add a third one without logging out the other two I already have!)
First of all the expanded DropBox continues to expand, with the new website designed to make it even easier – go to the website http://suzysoldtimetables.co.uk/ and you can use the drop-down menus to select those you want.
Since setting up the non-Tayside Archive folders too, I continue to expand. I was able (Autumn 2021) to prearrange for some leaflets to browse from some Scottish Bus Group companies – they had Strathtay 1986 to about 1995 and Fife 1985 to 1990ish. Additional areas of timetables (Midland etc) and   /or better scans may follow some other times. Also filled some gaps in these and other areas at events last year, as well as getting some from eBay (quite a few this month with Cambus, Bedfordshire, Fife, Grampian and many more besides!) In addition Perth and Kinross Library Archive and Dundee City Library Archive was visited for some copies of certain timetables and a D-Day (deregulation) newspaper supplement. This has also helped the preparation additionally a Dundee Buses Route History is also in the early stages (initially since deregulation day 1986) – for Dundee services before expanding to cover rest of Tayside)
With no more new stuff to work on, I feel that this is a good use of time (and less time sensitive). I hope to post a weekly or fortnightly post to advise of everything uploaded over the last few weeks.
The most recent non-Tayside uploads;
England
A decent selection of Cambus stuff latte 80s / early 90s with a few more- in Cambridgeshire folder
1993 set of Lancashire (with other extras) – half of 2 giant binders done with some odds and sods started, with more to follow - in Lancashire folder
1991 selection of Bedfordshire Council Area Books (10) plus in the early stages of a 1992 set of United Counties with many more to follow – in Bedfordshire folder
Scotland
Some Scottish Borders Council/Borders Regional Council books of old, with some scans  to follow and some recent ones as PDFs supplied by the council - Borders folder
Grampian Transport (and others) in late 80s/early 90s – with a handful more Bluebird to follow – Grampian folder.


Enjoy!

Wow Suzy! A lot of very interesting items featured on your website.

You have put such a lot of time and effort into setting all that up. It is most commendable.

Best wishes
David

Thanks to everyone for their positive feedback. Most of it was there - a few more recent stuff coming in seperately...
...Anyone being able to add a link to my archive website (http://suzysoldtimetables.co.uk/) - or in Newsletters etc - I would really appreciate as it's spreading the word about this.

I have also scanned 1997 S/C Cambus map (to go with the 1991 Cambus) and a few more 2001/2002 new style Northants Peterborough Bedford etc timetables too. (These were the last from Cambus)
Rest of United Counties folder to follow another time - but a good selection for now .

It’s been a busy few days with old “new” archive timetables left right and centre, alongside me working on a all-services current day Dundee bus map, including services like schools and rural shoppers in Dundee ABC area that don’t qualify for a route map elsewhere, which will assist me with Dundee archive (pronably opter areas to follow too). And a dead monitor a couple of weekends replaced too.
New Stuff Scanned Online Archive Now Ready…

===== NOW ON TWITTER =====
https://twitter.com/SuzysTTArchive which will start next week. I will be copying these posts alongside the Facebook page and local groups.

===== NORTHERN SCOTTISH =====
Northern 80/81 with subsequent updates as they didn’t print anything south of Aberdeen – already have the book but the subsequent updates are very rare to find like rocking horse…. Got this with 30 or so updates (separately the April 1981 timetable books for two of three Aberdeen areas – Deeside & Donside, Strathspey & Strathbogie (no Banff & Buchan yet 1981 in my collection) _- and Express TT free   with south of Aberdeen advised to use Winter with the updates. Mostly bus bills and photocopies including Grampian services part too. Mostly bus bills and photocopies including Grampian services part too (many foolscap if you wonder why two to a side).
Whoever had this copy has done the Full Suzy with just about every typo and error (and some of the tt changes) appended to the text. A few I would not have spotted. Naturally online search shows Sidlaw Hospital closed 1980 probably why the bus stopped going in that year would make sense.  (Don’t recognise the handwriting as a hairy/enthusiast I know so probably a stance member of staff or sales agent somewhere in Northern area – that settles it down to Peterhead/Elgin south as far as Dundee/Blairgowrie/Braemar… well anyway 80/81 Deeside/Donside and Strathspey/Strathbogie to follow in coming weeks and months
Complete Timetable File is 150mb so suggest downloading  from the directory listing;
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8qmfp1xxfcepxfr/AAAEX79U2nDcBn2ySk6md6Uia?dl=0
Eventually I will add the relevant tables into the area folders i.e. Grampian, Tayside pre-deregulation etc.

===== EDINBURGH/LOTHIAN 1960s/1970s LEAFLETS =====
Finally got through 1970s Edinburgh / LRT timetable leaflets, with some missing the dates. Anyone able to fill the gaps (and/or point me in the direction of a Network Map from those dates which were thin on the ground) please reply and/or message me. More up to date there is some 1997/1998 Lothian leaflets, with a couple of 2002/2003 (rest to follow 02/03  when I find the bundle of timetables).
You can see these at https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fo/zzuog06rs5pf7mgigk8mh/h?dl=0&rlkey=822ac7whuc116yvtuh7pf1ks9

===== MCGILLS  (GREENOCK 2001-2021) =====
A Small selection with many more to follow. (Some with recycled paper I bought on a torrentially wet day  = if you wonder why it looks like they’ve started falling apart…) In Strathclyde folder; https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dmarapeki79x9wf/AADBV0-tN_SRidD4-FeJVzpga?dl=0

===== LONDON COUNTRY/GREEN LINE 1980s LEAFLETS ======
Also English stuff has been received with a bundle of 128 – mostly GreenLine with a few LC from 1980s but a few earlier and later – I am scanning though the bundle in batches = roughly in numerical order, so currently Horsham Minis and 290 to one of the 705/706 with more to come. An extra directory can be seen here as well as later adding to the county folders.
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/95ndc0qfcmszpkb/AAC0qC_Q06adk26c9B9ULqcoa?dl=0

===== BRITISH RAIL SCOTTISH REGION 1965 TIMETABLES
 ======

The 65/66 Scottish rail (with some buses too) is also in the process of me scanning in small batches - rest of tables to follow
Was thumbing through and certainly an amazing amount of knowledge also at a time when some cuts were being made (Brechin passenger service) but before the full whack of Beeching – also
I guess the same amount of knowledge than one of the SBG/Council timetables of similar years - One that fills another gap with a few things in here I didn’t know!
First part (Introduction) is downloadable from this directory - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/oy1freq657y9hbc/AACyP_sBEl0a9D-VyXWmcZjBa?dl=0
- once the other parts are done they will be uploaded too

===== 1981 BRITISH COACHWAYS, RENNIES, SBG ENGLAND-SCOTLAND COACHES ======
Also arrived including the Northern/Scottish Bus Group pre-Citylink 1981 stuff was also some stuff like British Coachways timetables, including a Parks-only service, and the full one. Also included is a 1981 Rennies Anglo-Scottish Aberdeen/Dunfermline – Portsmouth/Plymouth express service timetables too. Some more SBG Express leaflets for Scottish areas in the near future.
As these are partially English, find these now at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pz1qyxwnp085s9r/AAAbUqSkBupFij_W1gWj_LM2a?dl=0
Enjoy!

Right now I am prepared to swear that you are the most amazing person in the world.
