BCT Atlantean to South Pier

September 24, 2015


Atlantean 334 waiting to set off from Cleveleys on Service 12 to Pleasure Beach.  As  'Pleasure Beach' was not on Atlantean's destination blinds - South Pier must do...


A rare sight in the UK - a thirty year old Blackpool Corporation Atlantean still in public service is a treat for bus enthusiasts venturing to the Fylde coast.   Caught today on the Catch22Bus Service 12 - it seemed just like old times, especially with

South Pier on the destination screen.   Later on in the day I managed to catch a ride on 334 all the way to Cleveleys and a return to the Blackpool Hilton.  


All of these interesting vehicles will soon go into the history books with advent of new Disability / Low Floor access requirements in 2016.   Catch22Bus are noteworthy for running ex London buses of varied types, ex Hong Kong three axle giants, Blackpool Corporation PD3s and now a Blackpool Corporation  Atlantean.


 Well done Catch22Bus !   Images :  John Woodman
