Hi Trev,
well spotted! What an interesting link!
How smart Steve looks on the picture! From now on I would like to take bus line 34, too, perhaps Steve is in.....
Many greetings, Folly3.

I think I remember somebody saying on this forum that the actual bus Steve was on has been scrapped and is no more.   :'(

Hi everyone!? ?:)

I confess - I'm the one who sent the details to the Buses on Screen webmaster!

And yes - Steve's bus was scrapped!? :(

There are some details on this site:

http://www.bristolsu.co.uk/mw/operatordetails/westyorkshire/835bwy.htm

There is a similar bus preserved (827BWY):

Ideal for a tour of Follyfoot places of interest!? ?;D

Avon Valley Railway, which is close to where I live, often do little shows and they have loads of old buses there.  Perhaps I should hijack one?  But then what are the chances of getting it from Bristol to Yorkshire in one piece?!

Well it looks as if I'll have to organise it!? :)
 
Perhaps we could get the owner to wind around the blind numbers to "34"and put a false plate on the front with 835BWY? But who would we get to play Steve?? ?;)
