Excel Twilight Postscript

December 19, 2015

Rigby Road Tram Depot has now become a store for withdrawn buses (or those on the verge of extinction).  The tracks to the far east side of the depot have been assigned for this purpose - with care due to the inevitable problems of pits between the rails as shown below with Excel 222 and sister bus awaiting despatch to the scrap yard in November.   This is nothing new.   In the late 1940s and during the war years this same part of the tram depot was also utilised for withdrawn (temporarily or permanent) buses of the Corporation transport fleet.  Also for many years the two buses assigned to Permanent Way use were similarly parked on this far side of the depot.   Image :   John Woodman
