These buses use the same model as HK or Singapore.

Back in the colonial days, Hong Kong could only buy British-made buses. Today, there is a bit more variety with Swedish and German manufacturers to choose from. Ironically, some non-air-conditioned British-made HK buses have been bought by UK operators and have returned home.

The majority of the buses in Singapore dont seem to be the same models as those used in Britain. Most of them are different, the only ones that I've noticed are the same are some of the double deckers as well as some of the bendy busses.

Some of the best busses I've traveled on in Britain are Nottingham's:




The photos were googled and are from: www.simplonpc.co.uk

HK buses can reach 12 m (Neoplan Centroliner), while their British counterparts are considerably shorter.

Funiculars of Scarborough and Saltburn/UK

All photos taken between 16-19 June 2006.

Scarborough
The seaside resort Scarborough is on the Yorkshire coast of England, 150 km south of the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It has a population of around 106,000. Scarborough had five cliff lifts, nowadays three are left and in operating condition.

1. The South Cliff Lift was built in 1875 and was the first cliff lift in the United Kingdom.


2.


3. The South Cliff Lift with high tide.


4. The St. Nicholas Cliff Lift from 1929.


5. The top station of the St. Nicholas Cliff Lift.


6. The entrance to the Central Tramway built in 1881.


7. At the left you can see the lift car of the Central Tramway.


8. The boulevard along the beach, Scarborough Castle at the top of the cliff.


9.


10. The beach at South Bay.



Saltburn-at-the-Sea
The town of Saltburn has a population of 6,000 and is located 20km south of the city of Middlesbrough.

11. You can take the stairs to the beach or...


12. ...take the cliff lift from 1884. This is the oldest working cliff lift on water power in the UK.


13. Interior of the operator room, the wheel is used to start the lift.


14.


15.


16.


17. The water reservoir of the lift car is filled at the top station. The weight then pushes the car down and the connected car upwards.


18.


19. Operator house.
