This is the bus I took to Teignmouth in Story Two. Parked on the Seaview Diner stop. Even though I took great care to get as close to the curb as possible the stop just isn't long enough to get completely in the bay. I could have got closer by swinging further over the pavement but that would have meant demolishing the bus shelter. As I have already in my time with the company wrecked one bus shelter I decided against this probable downward career move. And this bus is only 29 feet long, the double decker that I showed last week is 34 feet long and even harder to get on the bus stop without the back end sticking out.
Normally I don't wait time here, preferring to go and park on the sea front for 15 minutes so I don't clog up Teignmouth, other buses use this stop, both Stagecoach and Country Buses so it can get crowded. But today as I drove round to the sea front there was a number 2 in front of me. The number 2 also stopped on the sea front and the driver had got out of his cab and was having a cigarette. But his engine was still running. I didn't want to sit and listen to a bus engine running for 15 minutes so I drove back round and stopped on the Seaview Diner stop for a bit of peace and quiet.
