Peter Fray is now retiring from public, so some requests may not be done. He is refusing to give nets to the public so PLEASE do not pester him, If anyone asks for a bus net which is peter fray style, I shall shut down this site until further notice. Thanks, Daniel.

The Roman Express

The roman express is a service via Durham to an old roman mill which has been knocked down in order to make a new office. The bus is also operated by First, rather than Thornthames Buses. There are only 5 stops to go to because this is an express route. The route is numbered X10 because it is an express, and in total, this is a 2 direction route so in total, northbound and southbound, the bus stops 10 times.


First are expected to get some Scania Omnicitys to partner up with their E400s. They both use Diesel, (no, not the fragrance) like all other conventional buses. They go at a top speed of 70(well, expected), come in 2 types, Based on Omnidekka or its self, have 2 types of gear-box(ZF or Voith) and are very unique.
