Selwyn Motors cancel the 292

From VOSA:

PB0000112/1 - BARRY SELWYN DODD & QUEENIE DODD
T/A SELWYN MOTORS, WESTGATE ROAD, BELTON, DONCASTER, DN9 1QA
Cancellation Accepted: Operating between Belton and Doncaster given service
number 292 effective from 05-Jun-2012.


The 292 is a Saturday only 'shopper' service from Belton, Epworth and Sandtoft to Doncaster, and has been running for a number of years. It is Selwyn Motors only public bus service. I recall an industry magazine interview with the proprietor, possibly last year, in which he stated North Lincolnshire Council had refused to provide financial support for the service, so I'd be surprised to see a replacment.

Give it a rest .Barry must be 70 at least, I used to go to school on his bus in 1975 and shopping every saturday with him and the late Queenie, (replaced by Barbara the married girlfriend)Can't remember Barry looking young.If NLC wont subsidise the route you can't blame em it was never that profitable at less than £1.50 single.
