Come across a couple of photos taken a few years back.
Apologies in poor photos.

Of all the Coventry Buses that you could have captured in the background of your top photo here Steve, you go and manage to capture the now scrapped "CCT" liveried Coventry heritage Metrobus 2867 ! (Talk about good timing or what ?lol).

That photo has the date 08/05/2012 on it, by which time 2867 and the Coventry Theatre in the background had gone. Does, busnutsteve55 have a TARDIS? Can I borrow it to go back to the 1930s to take loads of colour pics of everything Coventry and Coventry Transport please?

It's a good job the Theatre was still there or there could have been a discussion as to whether it would have been John Taylor's 3065, which he repainted in 2010

If Steve does happen to have a TARDIS, then can i borrow it to please after Ken, as i'd be happy just to go back as far as the early 1950's, so that i can see and go on the brand new Daimler CVA and CVD6's, the Maudslay's and not forgetting 99 and 100 as well !!! (I've got some old 10s notes here in a drawer, so they should be more than enough to help cover all my Bus fares !!!lol).

As for Metrobus 2867, that ended up in Scotland after it left the West Midlands and as Ken says, was definitely scrapped by May 2012 ! (Think it was scrapped in around 2010 ?).
