Damory Dorset Doom Daftness?
Bournemouth correspondent John reported yesterday as follows:-
On 29th May the X12 was amongst the Go South Coast (Damory) cancellations of route registrations.
On 5th June First Whatever They Call Themselves This Week registered route 12 between Weymouth and Blandford via Dorchester. In Fridays DCC website update it was implied that the new route 5 (i.e. 12 or X12???) would also incorporate the 187 Bere Regis service.
Today 12th June GoAhead have apparently re-registered the cancelled X12; The previous online cancellation has vanished from that list of cancellations, however it is listed as cancelled on last weeks N&P using the same registration number.
As yet we do not have details of the actual timetables.
Two 12s? Competition on a route that was barely viable in the first place?
GoAhead have also registered Dorchester Town Services 1 and 2, previously run by Dorset County Council itself.
