|The World's Bleakest
|The windy city with its equally windy bus
station. St. Andrews Square in Edinburgh with its
underground labyrinth of un-used corridors running between platforms
closed on 1st July 2000. Seen on the last evening of
operation are Lowland 323 (A323BSC) and Parks KSK977.
It is to be replaced by a labyrinth of underground platforms connected
by corridors on the surface.
||In the old days. when Cumberland was but a
twinkle in Brian Souter's eye, Stagecoach ran only express services from
Scotland to London. The day vehicle from Glasgow used
to call at the dimly lit Arndale Bus Station in Manchester.
Their C176KET is pictured in the gloom in March 1987.
|The Bullring Bus Station in Birmingham was
always dark and cold when buses used it. However now the
buses have gone and the rag market is temporarily in residence, bright
lights and heating are the new order. One day soon this will
all be history. Clothes rails photographed in March 2000.
||Nice in France is one of the two foremost
cities for Baroque architecture. Nevertheless this didn't
prevent the construction of an inhospitable concrete bus station with a
Monaco-style roof top garden for good measure. RCA 9777UJ06
is seen leaving for Beausoleil in March 1991.
