Ok, I know this is not strictly timetable related. But it is ‘old’ (and amusing) and it covers how a Tyne & Wear PTE employee should act with a slight nod given to the upcoming deregulation era. Animal Anderson driver lookalikes used to frequently appear on the ‘CC1’ Derwent Coaches route which operated primarily between Whickham and Ryton (then into Newcastle in later years) although their actual conduct was usually friendly and welcoming (I’m sure you’ve all got a story to tell about ‘local’ bus companies and their drivers). Conversely, although they don’t dress like Mr Anderson, I’ve encountered many a driver with a similar attitude both past and present.

Anyways, here’s the video. Enjoy.
