Ribble Buses

If anything reminds me about growing up in Maghull..it was catching a Ribble...whether it be to Town...The Old Roan... Southport-even if it did cost a bit- I remember the back loaders with bus conductors and clippies...A smoke filled upper deck....Stopping for 15mins at Aintree to change drivers...The 311..310..350..321..340.302..even the 345.. Now I just drive a car and give my kids lifts everywhere..!!
