Welcome to the first edition of a new feature we're running here at TachPro Towers, where we'll be sharing with you all the latest news from around the UK transport industry.
At least twice a month we'll be sharing with you all the best (and worst) news that we can find along with some oddities and funny stuff if we stumble across it!
If you have a story you think our readers would like to see, then feel free to drop us a line Gary a line on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get your news added to our next edition.
Anyway, lets crack on with these great stories that we've found over the past couple of weeks:
