First 37675 (YJ58RTX), Otley Bus Station, 15th October 2017
The Otley local service 965 was being operated by First Volvo B9TL 37675 (YJ58RTX) on 15th October. This appeared to be massive over capacity for the loadings, but I assume it was in Otley because of the heritage West Yorkshire livery being carried. This was the best shot of it I got despite the car in the right foreground, all the others being marred by badly placed sunlight (????) or the destination screen not showing.

Reading the fleetnumber of this bus was a challenge for me, with my defective colour vision. It is Arriva 4291 (GN15CWK), a Wright Streetlite DF.

Whippet WD436 (LK54FLF), Huntingdon, 8th January 2016
A stop-off on a long journey on 8th January 2016 in Huntingdon gave me the chance to a bit of bus watching. All the shots were around the Bus Station, partly due to the angle of the sunshine and partly due to wanting to see as much as possible in a short space of time. FIrst shot was of Whippet Wright bodied Volvo B7TL WD436 (LK54FLF) on Princes Street whilst working a local service.

First 63016 (SM13NEY), Charter Square, Sheffield, 5th August 2017
The section of road where First 63016 (SM13NEY) was photographed used to be Charter Square but it might have changed as a result of the extensive building work going on around the area. Until I know otherwise I shall continue calling it Charter Square. The bus is seen from a distance in bright sunlight: shame about the rock in shadow in the foreground, though!

First Wright StreetDeck 35123 (SM65EFK) on Pinstone Street. A rather smarter bus than the usual fare on route 51, having a high specification for the X78 route when new.
