Line 18: Any Colour as long as its not black

 The new 18 route between St. Annes and Lytham is almost invariably worked by two Solos in the unphotogenic black pool – so to speak – livery. The only variation seen till now has been the occasional Line 4 purple (strictly “Cadbury blue”).

Yesterday, however, there was an unexpected burst of colour. Light blue (Line 16) Solo 291 is turning from Pleasant Street into Clifton Street, Lytham, and red (Line 5) 252 is descending Ballam Road railway bridge.

Recent unusual workings have seen Olympians 402 and new to Lothian 417 on Line 1 on Saturday; and 405 on Line 14 on Monday.
