Delta Demise (again)

123 - the last Delta and only all-over advert bus in the Blackpool Transport Fleet
Saturday 27 November saw the final service duty of a Blackpool Transport Delta with the withdrawal of 123 after a turn on Line 17 - just short of 20 years and 9 months after the type made its debut. And nobody said goodbye.

Sole Metrorider 518 clings onto active life on the DWP contract several months after its last sister was withdrawn

Blackpool has, so far, escaped the worst effects of the snow and ice that has gripped the country but 529 got its first taste of snow seen here as it turns into Burlington Road West on service 1A.
