Catch 22 now running every 20 minutes

From January 14th 2013, the Catch 22 route run by Classic Bus North West increased its service frequency from twice an hour to every 20 minutes. The more frequent service requires an extra two buses to operate it (in addition to the four previously used), enabling a greater cross section of the CBNW fleet to be seen in regular daily service. The Catch 22 service seems to be coming more established with the public, as each of the buses pictured here was carrying passengers, unlike in the early days of the service last year when spotting buses running empty was quite normal.
