Central ProvincesVIDEO ON THE TOPIC: Linz trolleybuses (Obus) 2019
JOJ Photo by J Everill. Between and Birmingham City Transport BCT purchased new buses to replace its entire fleet of trams and trolleybuses, along with buses built to inferior standards during the Second World War known as 'Utility' buses. Also replaced were all except 40 or so of its pre-War fleet of motor buses, although even these surviving buses were put into storage at Witton depot for several years before re-emerging in when BCT took over Midland Red routes on Walsall Road.
The new buses were built by five different chassis manufacturers; Daimler of Coventry buses , AEC of Southall 15 buses , Crossley of Stockport buses , Leyland of Leyland buses and Guy of Wolverhampton buses.
The mass use of public transport at the time is reflected by the fact that only 35 of these vehicles were single-deckers, which were mainly for use on routes with low bridges. This bus became a driver trainer after withdrawal from normal service in and when this photgraph was taken was numbered Incredibly this bus remained in use, testing the gear changing abilities of hapless trainees, until !

The Guy buses were a development of the 'Arab III' chassis modified for BCT with fluid clutch, pre-selective four-speed epicyclic gearbox, automatic lubrication system and chassis members cut off immediately behind the rear springs, meaning the platform was suspended from the body superstructure. Photo from BCT archive. BCT was very particular about coordinating the registration numbers of its buses with the fleet numbers.

The body fitted at Marston Green was arguably to the highest specification and standard ever achieved for a stage carriage bus built for urban use. In the lower saloon there was lavish use of moquette, produced to a design specifically for Birmingham, and upstairs leather upholstery. Much polished woodwork was employed throughout the bus. This was the last batch of buses ordered by BCT to be built in two halves, the top deck being constructed separately and then bolted onto the lower deck.
The quality of the materials used and the excellent design and craftsmanship enabled many of the type to have working lives well in excess of expectations. On completion, the bus was delivered to Quinton Garage where, even before it entered service, it became the subject of a number of tests in September These included fitting an experimental 5.
Brand new in Quinton Garage, is mounted on a towing ambulance as part of a series of tests with various types of towing equipment in September Within a few days, she was the subject of another test when the standard SAE30 engine oil was replaced by thinner SAE The results were not beneficial and the oil was returned to standard by 9th October. Three days later, she became the guinea-pig for trials of modified brake linkage levers. These were lengthened in an attempt to increase braking efficiency.
The bus was kept busy with its new sisters clocking up an average of around miles a week on the busy routes run from Quinton Garage and as the new design bedded in, various issues arose which required modifications.
Amongst these were additional gates fitted to gear levers to prevent reverse being inadvertently engaged, after one driver managed to back into another bus when he thought he had selected second gear! The previously mentioned exhaust note was not always a source of pleasure, especially to the residents of Ridgacre Road who complained of being disturbed by early morning departures from Quinton Garage.
It would appear that was either very unlucky in its early years of service, or else the standard of driving in the 's and early 's left a lot to be desired. The record cards reveal that she was sent to BCT's central repair works at Tyburn Road, Erdington, no less than seven times between and for rectification of frontal collision damage and once in for a rear collision.
These visits occurred as follows. The most serious was in December when the repair card shows a long list of panels and fittings replaced, internally as well as externally, structural repairs, repair or renewal of upper and lower saloon front bulkheads, a new front axle, steering box and radiator.
However, her luck seemed to improve after because no further works visits were needed as a result of collisions. Photo by A B Cross. More tests were carried out in with a repositioned diff worm shaft seal and in December involving the use of paper fuel filters, something which was subsequently introduced across the fleet. Apart from all the test work and visits to Tyburn Road Works, maintained a steady routine of service work punctuated by time off duty for BCT's rigorous programme of 'special cleans', carried out approximately once every 4 to 6 weeks.
Preventative maintenance of body, electrical and mechanical components was based on mileage. This would involve time spent on one of the nine pits in Quinton Garage, for example, after 50, miles for fuel sprayers to be changed, after 75, miles for propeller shafts to be changed, , miles for dynamo and main brake servo change, , miles for front brake servos and steering box, , for front axle change, etc. In April , she received her third engine, No , replacing No , which had been in since July , powering the bus over a distance of , recorded miles.
Apart from four days spent at Selly Oak and three weeks working out of Harborne Garage in early , remained a Quinton bus, covering the following routes:. By now, the bus had been fitted with flashing indicators, the offside one seen immediately behind the cab door, replacing the original and unreliable trafficator arms. Photo Group collection. However, dispersal began in September with - going to Selly Oak and in January , - moved to Cotteridge.
A weakness in the chassis members where the front hanger brackets of the front springs were fixed resulted in cracks appearing. After another year of service, 's next 'dock' at Quinton at the beginning of February revealed that the chassis problem had not been resolved.
Eventually, she was sent to Tyburn Road where the remedy was to cut out the previous repair, re-weld it and then weld a heavy box section over the affected area. This was a success and the repair has remained good to this day. For , official re-allocation to Hockley Garage took place in April when the bus was still out of action for chassis repairs and it was not until week ending 18th May that she once again entered traffic.
The bus furthest away in this view is one of the — batch Guys in for repair. At first glance, the other two buses would appear to be identical but in fact they are both Daimlers. Compare the length of the cab side window or the first side window in the upper saloon with the Guy. Former Acocks Green buses - 73, were also moved to Quinton for a brief period in early By the time this photo was taken, must have been one of the few buses still carrying front wings of the original length but this was to change in line with the rest of the fleet when the bus was overhauled in early Photo by J Carroll.
On 6th February , she entered Tyburn Road for the fifth overhaul in her long career. Whilst Leylands, Crossleys and Daimler engined Daimlers of similar age were rapidly being dispatched to scrap yards around the country, it was decided these veterans were worthy of yet another spell in works. Numerous worn out yet newer buses owned by Walsall and Wolverhampton Corporations were withdrawn and the sturdy and well maintained Birmingham Guys were moved in to take over, all remaining vehicles in the series to being sent to Walsall in early This move also allowed the closure of the town's trolleybus network.
Additionally, many newly delivered vehicles were allocated to North Division garages meaning that there were fewer available to replace Birmingham's massive and aging post-war fleet. Although continued to work out of Hockley, many other members of the - batch were sent to 'foreign' garages.
Later, when former Midland Red garages and routes in the Black Country and Sutton Coldfield were absorbed in , members of the batch were also loaned to garages there. This all meant that buses of 's type which BCT had begun to scrap in the last few months of its existence suddenly had a new lease of life under WMPTE.

BCT's high standards of preventative maintenance continued under what was now the PTE's South Division and 's record cards show many new or overhauled components fitted as a matter of routine at each annual 'dock' carried out in preparation for the MOT test. In addition, an overhauled engine, No , was fitted between 10th and 13th May and on 11th June she was out-shopped from Tyburn Road in the PTE livery. This incorporated royal blue rather than the original deeper Prussian blue.
A replacement gearbox was fitted on 12th January and after all this attention appeared to have many miles of regular service in front of her when she was sent to Harborne later that month to be 'docked'.
Incredibly, after all the recent repairs and investment, by the end of the following month, she was withdrawn from service as being surplus to requirements. Soho Road routes had changed over to 'one man' large capacity buses on 16th January and new YOX registered Daimler Fleetlines had arrived to take over, so whilst still in prime condition, was de-licensed on 30th April This might well have been the end of the road for , as she was stripped of her destination blinds and surplus fuel and driven to Lea Hall Garage for storage.
Fortunately, she was parked in the garage, whereas many other withdrawn vehicles were left parked in the yard at the rear of the garage at the mercy of the weather and the local vandals. In Summer , when suitable candidates were sought for reinstatement to carry out a special role, was one of five vehicles chosen.
WMPTE was launching its 'Travelcard' and four of the buses selected were to undergo conversion to mobile sales offices and photo booths. Photo by D Yates. Fortunately was subject to less radical alteration as she was to be used as a publicity vehicle and mobile cinema.
The upper saloon windows were panelled over, a projector screen was mounted at the back of the top deck along with a projector table and wiring to power the equipment. The seats were turned round to face the screen and the old tungsten filament bulbs were removed and replaced with fluorescent lights.
Luckily, the lower saloon was not altered. This work was completed on 12th October Over the next year and a half , now renumbered in the ancillary vehicle fleet, spent time at Acocks Green and Perry Barr Garages and was often seen acting in a supporting role to one of the other four Travelcard buses in city and town centres of the PTE area, where queues of customers often built up to have photos taken and get Travelcards issued.
From it sat gathering dust in the middle of Quinton Garage along with the other Travelcard buses until official withdrawal from the ancillary fleet on 31st December With the last of the original batch of Guys having been withdrawn from regular use in October , it seemed inevitable that would join them on the long haul to the Yorkshire scrap yards, but it appeared that she had been forgotten about. However as the other options rapidly disappeared, it was decided to investigate the potential for restoring the bus to working order and so on 2nd December , after checking the fuel pump was fully charged, jump leads were connected and the starter motor engaged for the first time in many months.
The engine immediately fired up and after an initial blast of white smoke, the exhaust rapidly cleared to a healthy blue haze, remarkable for a cold diesel engine dormant for so long!
Inspection over a pit in Quinton Garage revealed the bus to be in very good mechanical order and the bodywork generally sound, considering the bus was now 28 years old. The records revealed that the engine had run less than 16, miles since installation and the gearbox only just over 6, miles. In all, the bus had run a recorded total of , miles since , very low compared with buses that survived longer in passenger service.
Within three weeks of becoming the property of the Group, the bus had the changes made for Travelcard promotion reversed, external paintwork was cosmetically restored to WMPTE colours and an MOT test was passed.

The first place she went for parking was probably the least suitable place she has ever been kept - a farmyard, though thankfully for only three weeks. Lowe Farm near Arley in the Severn Valley was home to a variety of livestock, cats and dogs which found the bus of interest, either as a shelter from the weather or something to rub against, and a considerable amount of cleaning was required when the bus was taken away.

A pantograph or " pan ", or " panto " is an apparatus mounted on the roof of an electric train , tram or electric bus  to collect power through contact with an overhead line. Battery electric buses are charged at charging stations. It is a common type of current collector. Typically, a single or double wire is used, with the return current running through the rails. The term stems from the resemblance of some styles to the mechanical pantographs used for copying handwriting and drawings. The familiar diamond-shaped roller pantograph was devised by John Q. The pantograph was an improvement on the simple trolley pole , which prevailed up to that time, primarily because the pantograph allows an electric-rail vehicle to travel at much higher speeds without losing contact with the overhead lines, e. The most common type of pantograph today is the so-called half-pantograph sometimes 'Z'-shaped , which evolved to provide a more compact and responsive single-arm design at high speeds as trains got faster.
