London bound

National Express services from Blackpool seem a shadow of their former self. On 8 May Passengers board LSK839 a Plaxton Elite bodied Volvo B13RT of Parks of Hamilton on the 1450 service 570 to London (Brian Turner)

On the 18th a quiet moment before departure (Brian Turner)

LSK835 awaits departure on 18th May - the departure board lists around ten journeys per day to London, Plymouth, Bournemouth, Leeds, Leicester and Coventry (Brian Turner)

LSK835 starts its journey to London - a 6 hour 40 minute journey via Preston, Birmingham and Milton Keynes Coachway. This service is operated by Parks of Hamilton - who took over previous operator Trathens of Plymouth - neither owner being particularly close to the line of route! (Brian Turner)
