DSCN9976 Pop! goes the weasel and CT Plus DAS1 (SN57 DWE) - 2 Apr 2013
Tuesday 2 April 2013 (0846) – CT Plus DAS1 (SN57 DWE), an Alexander Dennis Enviro200, seen outside The Eagle in Shepherdess Walk when waiting to turn into City Road bound for Islington on London Buses contracted service 394. CT Plus is owned by the HCT Group which began as a social service operation named Hackney Community Transport. Not only is the group very active on London Buses contracted services but in January 2012 it won the contract to operate the bus network on the island of Jersey (Channel Islands). The board high on the wall above the red umbrellas carries the words of a verse from the rhyme ‘Pop! goes the weasel’ (said to have been written by 1856 in a performance at the Theatre Royal): “Up and down the City Road, In and out the Eagle, That's the way the money goes, Pop! goes the weasel"
