Remember this Bus?

doubledecker

Spotted the bus above at the double decker bus graveyard in Amghara. Back in the 90s this bus used to take tourists around or at least I think it did. I used to spot it mostly on Salem Mubarak Street.

I counted 21 busses at the bus graveyard, and a few of them had interiors that were in better condition than some of the busses currently in service.

    *buses.
    Sorry, Mark. I couldn’t help it.

    • Mark says:

      busses is correct

      • James says:

        Your comment forced me to research as I thought ‘buses’ was the correct spelling. But seems ‘busses’ is not incorrect either, just out of fashion.

        • Mark says:

          yeah i only realized busses was also correct because of this post, i usually spell it buses but accidentally wrote busses and didn’t get the red squiggly underline

      I was interested as I’ve seen both, so this is what I found in a quick search.

      In 21st-century English, buses is the preferred plural of the noun bus. Busses appears occasionally, and dictionaries list it as a secondary spelling, but it’s been out of favor for over a century. This is true in all main varieties of English.

    • BlarneyBob says:

      “If you just want the answer, the most widely accepted plural form of bus is buses in all varieties of English, but busses is acknowledged as an acceptable variant by most American dictionaries.”

    I wish someone could start a museum like the Classic cars one in Shuwaikh where restored old busses like these or restored old police cars etc. could be displayed.

    Looks like we are all talking about English, plural, noun instead of that bus featured in the picture…

    Shall we all focus on the topic instead of English grammer or spelling whatever

    There’s a red double decker bus in Dasma or Faiha, I saw it like a week ago. It was parking on a private property.

    Wow, old memories brought back!

    There is an ancient junkyard just below messilah beach hotel and they had two of these double decker busses. You could spot the yard from 30 motorway by looking at an old wooden ship monument just before passing messilah hotel.

    When i was a kid i couldn’t fight my curiosity so i clibmed over the fence to explore it.

    There i found lots of old stuff and most memorable was an old Kuwait Airways stair truck . I removed the wooden bird logo from it and rushed back to the fence being chased by angry dogs.

    Here’s coordinates
