Ribble Motor Services – This would have been their centenary

This year is the centenary of the formation of the mighty and much-missed (in bus enthusiast quarters particularly) Ribble Motor Services.

I’m told that Arriva’s Bootle Depot are to paint one of their buses in Ribble livery as a commemoration of the Centenary, which is fitting given Ribble’s Bootle depots (both the old one – now demolished and the new one – now Arriva’s depot) operated an intensive service on Ribble’s routes.

Here’s a blast from the past a former Ribble Lydiate bound 321 bus in model form. Sadly it’s a long lost route for Lydiate residents.
