Lytham bus shuttle on club day

LTT buses 19 & 70 operated a Park & Ride shuttle service between the entrance to Lytham Hall and the Hall itself on Lytham Club Day, Saturday 28 June. Despite the dull and showery weather, thousands visited the hall and 19 & 70 carried many full loads throughout the day. During the evening, both buses continued in operation for the night time picnic and steel band and it was not until after 11pm that the last buses departed Lytham Hall with a full load of passengers.

A pity that Lion 34 couldn't join 19 & 70, but issues with engaging crawler gear to set off and problems with vacuum brakes prevented its use.

In between other fleet requirements, Oakwood Travel has overhauled the brakes on Ribble VRT No.1997 and this bus is now almost ready for Mot test. Following the completion of this work, Ribble RE 366 is now undergoing brake overhaul work.
Lytham 70 has also been prepared for Mot test whilst ex-Blackpool Handybus 575 is now away at DieselTech in Blackpool for a full service and pre-MoT work.
