Get your anoraks on, we’re going to be engaging in a little bus spotting this week. I’ve been meaning to cover bus services in this feature for a few weeks, as there are plenty of old bus photos about, but it wasn’t until I started searching that I discovered the magical treasury of images on flickr by user and bus fan Walsall1955. In their stream you’ll find excellent images and descriptions of Walsall busses past and present.
For all those who’ve spent time bored on the 394, 33, 67, 362, 156, 995, 347 or X55, shivering in winter, sweltering in summer, nose pressed up against the window or in the top deck front seat pretending to be driver, this is for you. Whether you’re a half fare hopper, Saturday shopper, sleeper, a chatterer or never have the right change, there’s usually a bus going somewhere in Brownhills.
