On the buses

A bit of a rest from Croatia, have been away for a few days and witnessed the floods on Friday night at Hebden Bridge on the river Calder, luckily where we were staying was 70 feet from the high water mark, but it was devastating for those effected. Old London Routemaster's languish in an industrial yard.

A great shot John....I like your processing smile The advert for Snickers surprises me, I thought this would be Marathon?
John Prior: Hi Martin thanks, I did wonder that also, but checking I see that Mars Marathon adopted the international brand name Snickers in 1990, so 22 years ago, doesn't time fly!
The classic for bus fans. I like the reflection in the puddle
John Prior: Thanks Bill, I shot this through the gate railings, would have loved to get closer.
A fine vintage collection here John!
John Prior: Thanks Fred

WOWSER. Talk about a photo-op graveyard!!!
John Prior: The one in the middle still looks in fine fettle, probably low mileage at 200,000, thanks Ginnie
Those are some great looking buses. Love the textures and colors.
John Prior: Thanks a lot smile
Are these waiting fo restoration or demolition I wonder.
John Prior: Restoration or spare parts I would imagine, thanks Sheila
A great find John, what a shame you couldn't have got closer. We visited Hebden Bridge a few years ago and found it a nice place, we were very sorry to see they had the floods last week.
A wonderful collection just waiting for renovation and a new lease of life.
Unusual find for sure. Nicely done.
Great shot! Snickers? Really?!
John Prior: Mars used to call these chocolate bars 'Marathon' in the UK and Ireland, in 1990 they adopted the international brand name of 'Snickers' Apparently Snickers was named after a favourite horse of the Mars family, hows that for a bit of triviasmile
So british! Great shot and find!
Have a nice day.
