I was trying to think of a wisecrack that featured Rudolph, but somehow I could not bring myself to stoop lower than I normally would, but will ask is there one called Dasher? Donner und Blitzen!!! what will they think of next?

Caught it to Bull Street yesterday afternoon.

Then 17 went past.

Yes I think that the new blue livery is very smart but what I miss is the old Birmingham Transport colours od cream lined in black. I thought that it looked very smart and no adverts too.

We have to appreciate that these are West Midland trams not Birmingham trams. Therefore we cannot impose Birmingham on the other towns in the area. BCT buses have not run since 1969, 50 years ago and most people working for Transport for the West Midlands will not remember them.

At least, David, a good many here on BHF remember the BCT and Midland Red. Maybe present day employees would realise how easy modern vehicles are to operate then those of yesteryear. Anyone who drives an automatic car presently will know the difference from vehicles with gear stick and clutch.
