DSCF7910 Sightseeing buses in Liverpool - 16 Jun 2017
Friday 16 June 2017 (1208) – The Pier Head in Liverpool is home to three of the city’s many grand buildings. Nearest the camera is the Port of Liverpool Authority. Beyond that the Cunard Building and finally the unmistakable Royal Liver Building featuring the famous Liver Birds (The clocks had stopped and thus incorrect). Nowadays only the sightseeing buses call here but in the past the whole area was the focal point of the city’s buses and trams. The two main tour operators are Maghull Coaches Limited using yellow buses (‘City Explorer’) and Liverpool City Sights Limited using red buses (‘Sightseeing Liverpool’ and/or ‘City Sights Liverpool’). Both companies had buses parked at the Pier Head to sell tickets.

In this view are LCSL 306 (V511 ESC) (Dennis Trident/Plaxton President new to Lothian in October 1999) and Maghull Coaches SIG 1847 (DAF/Plaxton President new as T206 XBV to Arriva London North in July 1999) working on the tours. Further away are Maghull Coaches N757 OAP (Scania/East Lancs new to Brighton & Hove in May 1996) and LCSL T2 (S855 DGX) (a Volvo Olympian/East Lancs new to Metrobus in September 1998) selling tickets. The latter was permanently adapted for this purpose.
