A 1948 Daimler CVA6 here, seen standing in Pool Meadow bus station circa 1967, while on Driver Training duty! (You'll notice the big "DRIVER UNDER INSTRUCTION" "L" Plate attached to its radiator grill!).

It is carrying a "fleet number" 00, as opposed to the original 19. It also briefly carried 419 towards the end of its life Thumbs up

Hi all Wave This a part-copy of the posting on the Bedworth & Nuneaton topic. Changes to Nuneaton routes from 4th March 2017 09 Feb 2017 to 11 Mar 2017 Main Coventry routes below. Route 48 A new 0449 Nuneaton to Coventry will run on weekdays, running via Hilltop 0455, Bedworth Mill St 0503, Coventry Rd/Bayton Rd 0507, Longford Square 0511, Courtaulds 0519 and arriving in Coventry at 0527. Additionally the college days only 0803 Coventry Rd/Bayton Road to Nuneaton will now leave at 0800 and run 3 minutes earlier throughout. Routes 55, 56 and 57 In order to reflect on changes in passenger travel patterns, several route and timetable changes have been made. Route 55 will no longer serve Keresley Village & Prologis Park (see route 57) and will instead run via Wheelwright Lane, providing a new faster journey between Nuneaton, George Eliot, Bedworth, Bedworth Heath, Ash Green and Coventry. Route 55 will continue to provide 2 buses an hour. Route 56 will no longer serve Cross Keys (see route 57) and will instead run via Dark Lane. Route 56 will continue to provide 2 buses an hour. On Sundays, route 56 will be rerouted between Attleborough, George Eliot Hospital and Nuneaton. Route 57 will no longer serve Dark Lane (see route 56) and will instead run via Cross Keys, Keresley Village and Prologis Park. Route 57 will now run hourly. Routes 55, 56 & 57 will combine to provide a service between Coventry, Holbrooks and Prologis Park Junction up to every 12 minutes with a journey time between these points as little as 15 minutes. route timetable updates Updated 01 Mar 2017, 09:03 Route Diagram

As a child for an occasional treat on a Sunday afternoon in the summer I would be taken on a ride on a bus around the outer circle route. I think it began and ended at Pool Meadow but I can't remember where it went. Can anyone remember the route please?

A 1951 Maudslay Regent III, seen here in Pool Meadow Bus Station circa 1960 -1962? It was withdrawn from service in May 1965 and sold for scrap to a dealer in South Yorkshire in July of that very same year. There were only nine of these particular Maudslays in the "Coventry Transport" fleet (numbered 117 -125) and sadly not one of them survive today? (I personally would give anything to be able to travel on one of these, or even just to be able to see one up close, but I just have to accept that it's never ever going to happen?).

It may be possible - almost. The Maudslay Regent III's were rebadged AEC Regent III's (London Transport 'RT' bus) built at Parkside. AEC brought out Maudslay in 1948. There is an AEC Regent III preserved at the London Bus Museum at the old Brooklands Racing Circuit near Weybridge, Surrey and they have occasional running days. Closer to home the Severn Valley Railways "On The Buses" event on September 10th has a London Transport theme this year. Peter.

Call me an old sentimentalist if you like but the days are long gone when it was a thrill for the family on an outing on the buses - big sigh!!!! If we missed one there would always be another. Roll eyes

Yes, it is "almost", Peter - since I don't think any had MCCW bodywork similar to Coventry's Maudslays, so any preserved Regent IIIs (Maudslay or AEC) won't look like them Oh my Here is information on the CCT Maudslays Thumbs up There's some AEC Regent IIIs here

Peter On September 9+10 you will be able to ride on 6 old double-decker buses around Coventry including the oldest surviving Coventry Transport Double-Decker EKV 966 from 1945. Much nearer to home than Bewdley. Unfortunately for the Railway they moved their annual Bus Event from Sept 3 to avoid clashing with an event at Leicester. But not only is the weekend of Sept 9+10 National Heritage Weekend where many old bus owners are helping their local councils it also clashes with a big bus event at Cannon Hill Park. I would be surprised if Bewdley gets more than a couple of London Buses because of this. The Coventry Maudslays had unique bodywork and their AEC Engines were larger than the AEC Engines in the MetCam bodied CVA6s Fleet numbers 1-98. Wish I had saved one
