Ribble Motor Services and West Yorkshire Road Car Company joint service X192 timetable summer 1964
Ribble Motor Services and West Yorkshire Road Car Company operated their joint service X192 during the summer months linking Liverpool and Scarborough by way of many intermediate towns and villages. We lived in Rochdale and my paternal Grandparents (along with aunties, uncles and cousins) lived in Scarborough so we used the mid-week service on a regular basis. Sometimes we travelled on a Ribble all-Leyland Royal Tiger and sometimes an it would be an EUG class Eastern Coachworks bodied Bristol LS/MW of West Yorkshire.This timetable was operational from 15 May to 27 September 1964. Between the start date and 29 June the service operated Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays only - each partner operating from their 'native end' on Fridays and Sundays returning home Saturdays and Mondays. From 30 June to 30 September the service ran daily with each partner working out one day and back the next. On Saturdays there was also a St. Helens-Scarborough-St. Helens round trip usually covered by Ribble.
