Re: 2020 Arrivals and Disposals

I drove 64034 on Tuesday and it was a pleasure to drive. Having done 953,000km (around 620,000 miles), it rattled far less than a StreetDeck with 180,000 miles on the clock. With the wood effect flooring, I heard several passengers say "Ooh look, we have got a new bus with a wooden floor - lovely"....

63364 and 63366 have gone to Leicester, which is why 64034 and 64038 are being used before repainting.
Thanks for this info. :D I had wondered if they had been drafted in (early) due to StreetLite departures!

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

Now that 53062 has been repainted into Riversider livery. I wonder what will happen with 53061. Will she be Withdrawn... Or will she be kept, if kept I reckon she could be put in 'Spare Bus' livery (which I think would suit the Solo bodywork quite well ;) )

I suppose 3 is an improvement upon the 0 recorded on the first journey to Parkway this morning! :lol:
What does it say on the pink triangular sticker at the back?

Re: Buses serving Norton Parkway

i wasnt aware it was free until the driver told me when i took a photo of the bus I'm now questioning whether this is just a one-off Sunday operation if it's free! And there is no TT anywhere other than on the link I put on here! Also, Looking at the TT, it will be a struggle for the driver to keep...

Re: Buses serving Norton Parkway

Looking at the TT, it will be a struggle for the driver to keep to time - with only 2 minutes turnaround at each end!

I was at Parkway when the first X50 arrived with no passengers.
It does not surprise me one bit! Considering I wasn't even aware of the new Sunday operation until an hour ago! :lol:

Re: Buses serving Norton Parkway

not sure what the point is, seeing that these buses will be in leicester soon, but they added parkway to the branding on the x50 centros I'm guessing this is just a temporary thing to advertise the fact that they stop there. I'm hoping that the X50 will receive a re-brand soon (either using the new...

Re: Buses serving Norton Parkway

I don't know if anyone else was aware of this (I have only just found out myself) that as of Today the X50 runs on Sunday's! :o And oddly the Sunday TT runs until much later than the Monday-Saturday TT! It runs hourly between Worcester & Pershore - via Parkway of course!) It does not continue to Eve...
