TrentBarton 628, Upper Parliament St Nottingham, 29-07-2017
Also in Claverton Connection livery, 628 has arrived from the village and is waiting time to depart back north.
This route was fitted with the Nextbus real time system, but suffered significant issues in the early days thanks to the topography of the area. The main radio mast was on Victoria Centre flats, which is quite high (!), but buses to Calverton drop down out of site of it when they pass Dorket Head, while it was near impossible to communicate with the stop dispays in the village - despite coverage predictions suggesting otherwise. Radio propogation is a dark art! Fortunately, we had a second site at Clipstone Colliery set up for the Mansfield - Olerton service, and this could see Calverton so an additional reciever was set up there for the buses and the stops retuned to that transmitter. Fun times!
