Ode to Pennine.

 

Pennine Leopard Bus

Leyland Leopard at Skipton

I never thought that the day would come again, when I was once again able to climb aboard a Leyland Leopard coach and travel from Skipton to Carleton. Let alone see the coach so full that there was standing room only. But today is that day! Well done the private owners of these buses, who have provided today’s free timetabled service. It would be great if this complimentary bus service was able to become an annual event on the local calendar. Tomorrow the Airevalley Transport Group will host a vintage bus rally in Skipton, and will also offer rides around the local area.

An Ode from one who misses the Pennine service to Carleton.

 

Service given with a smile. Driven with desire, with trust.

 

Traveling over Pennine hills: Along the Dales. Available to all.

 

Stopping as required- Behold the last day.

 

Traditional orange no longer seen: Bye to the Pennine Service.
