Re: AA Bus Stance - Ardrossan

I can remember A1 Bus Stance at Fleming Crescent Saltcoats ( New England ) and also another A1 Bus Stance at what was called the Villias down at Ardeer (Pillar Box) . Then there was the main one opposite Ardrossan Academy. Sometimes the SMT bus stopped for 10mins at Stevenston Cross.
