D9

Thanks to all those who responded to yesterday’s Blip. Today I’m going back a bit further, with this Midland Red (BMMO, Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus) D9. D9 is the Midland Red type-name for these buses – they built their own buses, and double-decker names began with D, single deckers with S and coaches with C. The makers of this model chose to use the destination code which matches the vehicle code, and so that was a Dudley local route. There is (or was) a D9 preserved and sometimes used at The Black Country Living Museum. I travelled on these buses a number of times, though not on the D9 route.
