A Conversation for Buses in the UK

A very informative entry, especially the explanation of bunching.
One thing that made me go though - "...rape-powered buses". What ghastly image that conjures up. Perhaps "Rapeseed oil-powered buses", or "Buses powered by bio-diesel made from rapeseed oil" might read better, especially for any Americans reading the entry, bearing in mind that they call it canola oil here.
Apart from that, a really good entry

...And here I am, living innocently near several fields of rape...

If it's not edible, we call it linseed oil. The edible canola oil is a Canadian invention. Fields of rape are very pretty, I remember seeing one, and then the embarassment of my folks to explain to me where linseed oil came from.

Very pretty, yes, but not nice to walk through as you get covered in yellow pollen that irritates everyone who's slightly hay-fevery, and they're quite a tough and tall plant, often towering over you. They tend to refuse to get out of your way as well...
