It was quite sunny so I headed back to Stobarts depot at Appleton near Warrington and carried on from the other day when I'd stopped due to poor light. I carried on for quite a while, its a busy spot but looks very rural. Eventually it got overcast so I called that session to a close and decided to go back to Chester and finish my filming there as it should be more or less normal at the bus station not being a Tuesday or Thursday ( see previous post). Sods law the clouds parted and it was back to sunshine but this wasn't a problem with normal routes being followed, I met two other enthusiasts at the bus station. Between GHA and Routemaster they can put on quite a show of golden oldie buses, also managed to get a very brief shot of one of the ex Fishwicks saloons still in their fleet livery as I was walking back to the car.
I didn't manage to get my free space today in Chester, the car parks are being converted to pay on entry and they won't have free parking for disabled, progress eh. Anyway the roads and pavements were like skating rinks but the council were out gritting. Hearing the Staffordshire traffic news on Radio Stoke it seems that that county was almost brought to a standstill this morning by the weather and accidents. Having got the bus film done I decided to go back again via the M56 motorway and try another session in the sunshine near Stobart, Appleton. By this time the sun had gone and it was back to cloud but I battled on anyway to the bitter end. I'm editing the two DVD now. Tonight the slideshow is Chester yesterday and today including the bus station building site.
