DSCN9978 Pop! goes the weasel and CT Plus OS14 (YJ60 PFK) - 2 Apr 2013
Tuesday 2 April 2013 (0848) – CT Plus OS14 (YJ60 PFK), an Optare Solo, seen queuing in Shepherdess Walk by The Eagle when waiting to turn into City Road. 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 on the wall of the pub 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"
