TrentBarton 504, Carrington St Nottingham, 25-07-2017
Missed the front shot, so the rear had to suffice! Solo SR 504 arrives from Bingham via East Bridgford and Gunthorpe.
This service has recently been heavily cut. The V1 which survives is the successor to a long-standing service operated by Skills and Trent, latterly the 24 then 14 from Nottingham to East Bridgford, later extended to Bingham. Until recently, there was also a V2, whcih incorporated service which were once part of a complex network of routes serving village in the Vale of Belvoir beyond Cotgrave. The last iteration included links to Bingham, but clearly have been unable to operate sustainably. The biggest casualties are the Cropwells (Bishop and Butler), now off the commercial bus network and served by tendered service 822, operated by Yourbus.
