Burton didn't disappoint, Midlland Classic lifts this place into the bus enthusiast super league, as well as interesting well presented buses the drivers are always so friendly. It really didn't take that long to get over an hour of film and then I had a coffee in M&S before carrying on to Stafford, talk about the SATNAV finding tiny roads across country, their were highwaymen on one turnpike sand the ox carts were around every corner. Stafford after Burton ( why do I keep going there) was like watching very slow drying paint. I thin it's that my mind always goes back to the days when is was a thriving market town with plentiful bus services, now it a mess , dead hole and hardly any buses.
One thing Burton did have was a new form of secret police, these are called civic enforcement something like East German STASI I think, there was this bloke with a Wyatt Earp badge and reckoned he was something else, had a forces badge on his jacket, thought he was some sort of special police - reported him on 101, perhaps he was just mentally disturbed! His picture is below. The slide show is of Midland Classic and Arriva/Trent this morning.
