Bus Fire in CMK

A Redline bus caught fire today at the old Bus Station in CMK today..

Going by the flames in the first picture it seems they were very lucky that there wasn’t more damage done to the Bus Station/Buszy

There has been unconfirmed reports that the bus had mechanical issues earlier in the day, but of course that could be something completely unrelated.

Another Quick update

another quick update from me.

As I’ve posted many times on here before, I’ve thought about seperating my blog into two seperate blogs, One for buses and one for personal stuff.  Each time I’ve  thought about it it’s kind of gone to the back of my mind as soon as I begin to realise what a pain in the arse its going to be to do….

So I’ve now decided not to seperate it, But leave it with you the reader to decide on what you see.

At the top of the screen in the green bar, You can now choose to just see bus related posts, or no buses at all 🙂

If you are not fussed or like reading both types then just come here as normal 🙂


Training progresses at LM with me now doing my on the train training, Currently working through my route knowledge which I’m finding tough in places but plenty of revising at home seems to be doing the trick!


On the bus side, News reaches me of plans for a N5 night bus in MK from mid July, Once I have more details I’ll post here.


Not much else been going on, Sold my Macbook Air as I just could get on with it for £750 on ebay and used the money to buy me a nice new windows Laptop, some decent headphones, iPhone dock and still have some money left over!



Easy Sunday and a Test

Nice easy shift last sunday trundling back n forth on the 300’s… This is a rare treat as it’s a seperate rota, There’s no hassle on it at all, It’s a nice simple run and the buses are lovely to drive… I’m just not sure I could do the same route all day every day..


It seemed on Wednesday Arriva introduced a new memory test without telling me.

The test seemed to be to see if you could work the ticket machine only from memory. As you can see from the lower screen, Trying to remember what fare stage you are on and what buttons your pressing without a working screen takes a lot longer and ended with me failing the test miserably when I took this picture as I was 16 minutes late.. lol
