Yesterday morning I walked down to the station with Epi and then did a little bit of photography for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge on my way back home.

On one of the side streets I found this sign…

…Nice of them to tell us – just wish all Burglars were so thoughtful 😉 The sign might be less open to mis-interpretation had it started with the ‘Anti-‘ prefix.

Local company Southgate & Finchley Coaches were positioning from their depot ready for the morning school runs, seen here on the High Road in East Finchley…

…That sun was really bright! The coach is a Volvo B12B with Plaxton Panther body.

Last week, on Tuesday, I spent some time on Stratford station, so here’s a couple of train shots showing the yellow ends to close off my entry for this week…

…Class 379 electric unit depositing passengers before making the short return trip back to Meridian Water. And here’s a pair of Class 66 locomotives on an intermodal service from London Gateway to Leeds…

…The second loco is not working – known as Dead in Train (DiT) and is either being relocated for operational reasons or is being taken for some TLC.

The Red Double-Decker Bus is very much a symbol of London – often depicted on postcards and other art forms for sale to tourists.

A flock of ‘New Routemaster’ buses on Parliament Square and Whitehall. Forming the new LT class they entered service in 2012. They are nicknamed ‘Borismasters’ after Boris Johnson who was the London Mayor who oversaw their introduction…

Here’s a ‘Real’ Routemaster – RM543 at the Richmond end of the 27 route taken back in 1980. Routemasters entered revenue service in 1956 and can still be seen in central London today on tourist services…

Predecessor to the Routemaster was the RT (AEC Regent III) which entered service in 1939. They were still in service in the mid-1970’s and some lingered on for training duties like RT4442 seen at Kingston in 1979…

Here’s a ‘Tourist Postcard’ style photo of VLA153 crossing Westminster Bridge in 2011 with the Palace of Westminster Clock Tower as a backdrop…

After sharing a video of the Volvo VNL670 I thought I’d share a few screenshots from trips in this truck.

No prizes for guessing which state I’m in with this shot……Departing Gallup with a ventilation shaft.

An interesting delay on the interstate……Called into the Weigh Station at Grant’s Road. I found a car on the off ramp waiting for a gap in the traffic to get back on the highway – clearly a confused bunny 😉 And then when I was clear to go I found the exit snarled up. I thought it was an accident but it turned out the tanker you can just see the back of between me and the Schneider had broken down. After a couple of minutes waiting for the ai to de-confuse itself I decided to drive around the blockage using the hard shoulder. Made for a nice shot to show off the metallic paint job though 😉

The twin silos in this late evening view are a sign that we’re running into Barstow……That’s a bit of a mixed blessing. It means not too far to go until Bakersfield (if that’s where I’m headed) 🙂 It also means we’re approaching the horrible I40-I10 intersection where you can trust the ai to set up some traps to catch the unwary 😉 You can see how clear the instruments on the Volvo are in this shot.
