Re: 2020 Arrivals and Disposals

A driver is going to Slough depot tomorrow (Wednesday 22 Jan) to collect a Citaro - no details which one as yet, but this should be the first of several to arrive over the next few weeks. Also, I have been reliably informed that the Plaxon Centro bodied Volvos, (66691-9) are due to leave in the nea...

First Potteries now have a 'Spare Bus' (In the form of Scania 65032) :roll: :lol:

Re: 2020 Arrivals and Disposals

http://wmbusphotos.com/Fleetchanges/First.html Six StreetDecks are now officially transferred from Olive Grove to Leicester, and so if the various reports and rumours are correct, we could "soon" get two StreetDecks and four Geminis from Leicester. Apparently the StreetDecks need work doing on them...

It's got an adblu dosing fault at the moment which needs to be sorted and she'll be back on the road. Thank you Me...

Re: WR's Coach Usage

An interesting development this afternoon is the use of 20612 on the S50, and as this has been recorded by the bus tracker, it implies (to me) that 20611/12 are fitted with fares collection equipment, at least some of the time. It looks as though it may become a common sight to see the coaches used...

Re: Fare marketing contradiction.

Thanks for sharing this Tim. This is something that confuses me... I presume the £4 should have been removed at the same time the £6.50 figure was applied...

Re: New round of disposals and transfers-out.

I noticed the other day that Riversider 53065 has no first logo or Worcester City branding at all too, also Adam not on fleet list It has been noticed on many of First's various new route-specific liveries that it is becoming less obvious that vehicles are operated by First with lack of First logos...
