On the Brighton buses

During the last Liberal Democrat Conference I commented on Brighton and Hove's delightful practice of naming its buses after prominent local residents.

I have now found a page that lists all the people who have been honoured in this way and provides links to short biographies of them.

Hours of fun.

Nottingham trams do likewise.

Thanks Jonathan! There are certainly some interesting names on list!

What a pity they haven't used Magnus Volk, who built the electric railway along the front (and also the extraordinary but long-defunct Brighton & Rottingdean seashore electric tramroad) and installed electric light in Brighton Pavilion.

Good news, Tom. Volk is there as no. 810.
