First up for a big shout are our saviours, the Ipswich bus team. Starting with Stu, who gave us a lift to our first bus (and understood why we were being so bloomin difficult), and then to Dean and Malcom - who met us early doors, took us on a ride around town and made sure we left the city!

Moving on a way, equally large thanks and hello to Alison O'Calpin, the Omnibus PR expert (and very bouncy person when exited!) Thanks for travelling with us Alison, although you do have a nervous disposition...get a new ringtone!
Also, we HAVE to thank both Colin and Margaret of Stagecoach for their hospitality whilst travelling across Cambridgeshire. No photo once again, but we were very happy to meet you!
One person who I very nearly forgot... though we didn't so much see him as spot him on the busway, was Jamie Armstrong. Thanks for joining in Jamie - you have not been forgotten! Here is a photo of Jamie at Histon (look at the bottom left hand corner):
|Jamie Armstongs back, leg or arm... OK, sometimes photo's go wrong!|
At Peterborough we met with Mel Holley of Route One magazine, who was keen to hear all the gossip (he is a journalist - of course he likes to hear gossip:-) and set us the task of fact finding for him. Good to see you again Mel... we hope you can collate all the press releases coming out of this trip for your magazine. Then I really will have made it in the industry:-)
