Centenary Bus


Recommended Posts

Guest transit

An extra touch of authenticity would be to have properly painted, rather than stuck on, adverts on the side upper panels. A friend of our family, Alan Collins, used to paint these adverts on Sheffield buses. I don't suppose there would be much call for his skill nowadays.

alas no , the traditional signwriter advert skills have been superceded by computer vinyls for quite a while ! - although the buses are still usually hand painted like the above retros , but the linings , lettering and coats of arms ect are vinyl.

I noticed Hulleys have their buses in very similar colours to the old "cream and blues". Don't know how long they've been like that, but they obviously know a good colour scheme when they see it.

Was first revealed at the Rotherham Depot Open Day on 10th May. I understand it has seen regular use since.
