Deciding what is actually Orange can be tricky – unless it’s a photo of an Orange 😉 Anyway, I’ve done my best to come up with some non-Oranges type Orange for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge.

Tiger Line was a short-lived bus operator in the Hertfordshire area…

Terracotta tiles and Lichen…

A slogan in orange paint…

And a final coach – Harry Shaw’s ‘interesting’ white, orange and blue livery…

Sorry I missed last week’s CMMC and, indeed, doing other posts – had a mix of weather, heating and car related issues that tied up my time (and there may have been an occasional trucking event requirement thrown in too!) Anyway, here we are with some shots for this week’s CMMC.

Clarkes Coaches specialise in providing UK tours for Asian visitors so, before the pandemic, it was quite normal to find their vehicles outside Buckingham Palace and The Royal Mews…

Wingate & Finchley FC didn’t get to play many games this season before the pandemic called a halt on proceedings but here’s a shot of The Blues playing Horsham FC in their green strip…

Then, there’s a footbridge close to home from which I often photograph trucks and buses…

Hope that meets the Blue-Green’s criteria? 🙂

I know Cee loves transport in her challenges but we’re going to start with some buildings – in this case an old Odeon Cinema approaching the end of its life…

…no longer showing films, having closed in 1964, it spent a number of years as a car showroom and a furniture store. It was demolished in 2013.

Central house – Finchley Central…

The white is going cream/dirty and the reinforcing bars behind the facade are leaking their rusty residue down the face of each level – ironically adding so much character to a bland 60’s building.

Cream and White…

…The National Bus Company painted it’s coaches white, so here we have an Eastern National Bristol RE with Plaxton bodywork sitting in Peterborough alongside a cream liveried Bedford YRQ belonging to Everett’s of Atterby. The latter was a rare vehicle, the Bedford YRQ chassis and Duple Viceroy Express body combination only ever being ordered 97 times.
