Redditich is a hard place to like, a sinister aura about it and to confirm the bad atmosphere a foreign driver on a Diamond had a go at me but he struggled as he only spoke a couple of words in English how does he cope with passengers I wonder. It's been a better spin off from Brexit that hitherto most East Europeans have kept their heads down since the result, I suppose they now realise that Brexit means nothing more than letting them all stay where they are much to the dismay of many voters who thought they'd be on their way home by now. I wonder how long we'd last behaving like they do in their countries. Diamond have a lot of Wessex branded buses in Redditch, must have taken the wrong turning in Bristol. What a shabby fleet it is and if you have a problem they never respond to a letter or email, run by something called Rotala, which the net informs us is an alternative investment company perhaps is should seek an alternative to bus services with an emphasis on the service.
Next I travelled on to Stourbridge the Perry People Mover was, yes you've guessed already. An interesting small bus location often worth a peek at then it was on to sunny Dudley, very pleasant clear blue sky and oodles of buses, a great and friendly location. Photos start at Redditch.
