Well done John. I took CUV 213C out at the weekend in less treacherous conditions with 30 passengers for a family day out at Nene Valley Railway's annual Open Day (Free entry) and treated the accelerator and brake pedals as though they were made of glass. However keeping the maximum speed to 25 miles an hour isn't too difficult in a 1965 AEC Routemaster.

John is quite a character.

As well as his blog and his contributions to the Essex buses yahoo group he is also the editor of the much improved Bus Fayre magazine.
