You can never have too many photos of this bus, or any Sheffield Transport or SYPTE bus, for that matter. Another great shot, andyrad.

The livery is a little inappropriate for The Wednesday :o

Does anyone remember when Catherine Howard was used on a TV programme called "Going Places" I think it was presented by Johnny Ball. It was based all around South Yorkshire and transported kids around who were doing some sort of transport study for school

Yes your right 287 was used for hieght test and grab tests on the ring road, Ill dig but I understood after 287 was used at yrok it went to an export dealer . ill look it up

I was on the Supertram gauging run when it went down Netherthorpe Road. The railway inspector called for an open top bus and had it parked in the 'fast' lane From the top deck he leaned out holding an umberella to see if he could reach the wire, which had been isolated temporaorily. Needless to say all was well and the run continued when the power was restored. That would be about late '94 early '95 as the tram opened to Shalesmoor in Feb '95
