Coleshill Saturday

A couple of days spent in the West Midlands for a family wedding. On Saturday afternoon we arrived in Coleshill on our way to our first night's b&b and was fortunate in observing two National Express West Midlands deckers passing along the High Street

The first is of Alexander ALX400 Dennis Trident Y758TOH, which was new to the company in June 2001 receiving fleet number 4161

The 70 route operates between Birmingham City Centre and Chelmsley Wood via Ward End (Fox & Goose Public House), Castle Bromwich, Water Orton and Coleshill. The Fox & Goose I remember really well as it was the regular watering hole for my brother in law!

As I was returning to the car, ALX400 bodied Transbus Trident 4445 (BJ03EUT), painted in the latest two tone red livery, arrived. I'm not sure if it was the rush to get the photo, or the excitement of seeing the new livery, that there was some camera shake resulting in a slightly blurred image! My apologies
