T1229's shutter speed of about three trillion results in a high quality pic!

Those artics look better minus kites!

Why does the turntable need its own mudflaps?

That doesn't help with night shots.

And I reakon the kites make it look interesting, it starts to look plain and boring without them. But I seem to be in the minority here.

As for the artics they should get them onto the route that they were bought for, the 111. If the A9 stop is a problem switch the 111 with the 140 at A6. More queuing room as well. But as it stands the 150 is the route with most artic services, so they end up on it the most.

What about a livery like C625-C629 had? with the could etc. It is after all an environmentally friendly bus.

nice photo, thoug I think the Man NG 313 artics are more common as 160's and 111's (especially on weekends). though they do come as 150's quite a bit aswell.I wanted to get one to browns plains as a 150. so went and waited, and the first 150 was Man NG313 artic G1610, so i got on and the ride was enjoyable apart from the bumpy roads along Runcorn and that someone stuck gum on the back (side window) which left sticky stuff all down the window, dos'nt that person know what a bin is for, I hate it when some people don't treat buses right by damaging them :x
Waiting to see what BT, LCBS and other artics I get on next
