Anyone remember Caves coaches from Solihull Lodge?.
John,John, This isn't the view I promised you but for now one of Malcolm Keelys of the ACE. Geaorge told me once that old man Cave had always had a hankering to own an AEC but left it too late to get a new one so he bought the ACE instead.
Things haven't changed much in Cornwall. Worked for First (Western National) few years ago, still had busses with no blinds and had to use bits of paper with destination on.Hi. Mike. Sorry but the photo isnt there, the 149 ran from City to Solihull station via Shirley, Widney Manor, Dorridge, Knowle and Solihull, trouble was he wouldnt have blinds made half the time, I used to try and put the destinstions on a piece of paper and stick it on the nearside window, we had another run for 6 months from Robin Hood island to Tesco,s at Monkspath, number 123, but no destinations up at all, hardly anyone ever used it because no body knew where it was going to or from, then they used to moan about it running empty, but they didnt like any body to suggest anything that may have helped. the 197s and 196s were his best payers, helped with the Centro subsidy. Cheers. John.
