From the September Archive

Turning back the clock, the following news stories were making the pages of the LEYTR in years past:

September 1985 - 30 years ago
27 September saw EYMS introduce a fleet of seven 16-seater Ford Transit/Dormabile M16 minibuses in Bridlington, and from the following day to Hornsea, operating under the East Yorkshire Little Bus name. Vehicles were 301-7 (C301-7 CRH).

30 September saw the end of loco-hauled services on the Cleethorpes - Newark route, as a consequence of there being insufficient electrically heated coaching stock. The 2-car DMUs that were the replacements struggled to cope with demand.

September 1990 - 25 years ago
The Great Northern & East Lincolnshire Railway Company was granted permission by the government to "make and maintain a standard gauge railway no longer than 10.5 miles" on 5 September, spurring the company on to launch an appeal for £100,000 to purchase and lay trackbed near Ludborough. The route would go on to be come the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway, operational today.

Also on 5 September, KHCT entered into service the first vehicles in its fleet that conformed to DiPTAC legislations. Scanias 809-16 (H809-16 WKH) came with low-step entrances, high visibility handrails, priority seating for the elderly and infirm and nearside route indication.

September 2000 - 15 years ago
The UK's first open access train operator, Hull Trains, ran its first services, linking Hull with London King's Cross and in competition of sorts with franchised operator GNER. Hull Trains began operation using 100mph Class 170 Turbostars ex-Anglia Trans. Ten years later (and under new ownership), during September 2010, First Hull Trains carried its 800,000th passenger, such was the appetite for direct travel between the UK's fifteenth largest city and the Capital.

September 2010 - 10 years ago
Zonal fares were introduced by Stagecoach in Hull. Just three fares were now charged, generally radiating out from the city centre.

I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about http://uklocalmovers.co.uk/, their Man and Van Clapham are very effective.
