Everyone remembers that, and correct me if I'm wrong but there was never a queue of 7s.

They weren't supposed to be free.

The no 7 was my bus home if I didn't walk and I can never remember them queuing around the island.  I do recall on occasion one renegade would be holed up in the no 11 line.  I know this from looking in the direction that the bus would come from and seeing one come from Aston Lane as opposed to the Witton Road.

 I occasionally used the free trains to and from new st / Aston or Witton until they recently installed ticket barriers

Getting thrown out of the Holte by the cops for swearing, running down the alley at the back of the Holte and paying in again at the other side, happy days
