Skills SFZ5769, Carrington St Nottingham, 18-08-2018
Another cricket shuttle, in the hands of sister vehicle SFZ5769, ex VPL2 at London Sovereign and following the same ownership pattern. This is traffic that in the past would have been largely handled by NCT regular services, with duplicates at kicking out time. This was the first time I'd been aware of a dedicated shuttle (and I used to work in the black and white building behind the cricket scoreboard at Trent Bridge!). Henry Blofeld's comments about the multi-coloured buses obviously didn't encourage people to use them!
