Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

It's 20809 YN62GXS, again from Reading (in my 2016 handbook). Don't know whether it's permanent though, and it has a different Volvo chassis to 20611 -- same body type and colour scheme though. Interesting, Thanks DD12! This was one of the coaches that was briefly on loan to First BoS/First Kernow ...

Re: Double Deckers

Yes, I am a definitely a fan of the Volvo B9TL's styling! They also seem to have big/wide windows to look out of (the opposite to the StreetDeck's, which have very narrow windows upstairs!) Also, the advantage to the B9TL is that they are probably up to Euro 5 standards - considerably better than ou...

Re: Hay on Wye 2019

One Leicester StreetDeck was at the garage earlier, ready for the X99 etc, which starts tomorrow. ( I couldn't see the fleet number). Don't know how many we will borrow this year, but as 35159 is off the road, we might get another one same as last year, to cover tomorrow and Friday at least. This i...

Re: Double Deckers

Just a thought - These newer DDs could possibly come from First West Yorkshire (Leeds) as they have and still are receiving new StreetDecks! This means that in return some of there older DDs should be displaced. It appears that this is/will be the case as some of there Volvo B9TL's have started to m...

Re: Salt Road 2019

Also First better get their act together before the Birmingham CAZ comes in otherwise they'll be getting fines! I agree! And when/if our StreetLite Max's depart for Leicester then we will only have 6 other Euro 6 vehicles left that could be used as Spare's/replacements for the 'Salt Road' buses. Th...

Re: TRACKING !

An interesting "phantom" on the main live map today was a "Midland Classic Test Bus No.4" which appeared to be parked at Padmore Street for about 5 minutes !! I decided to go and check, as there has been plenty of interest to see in recent times -- and of course when I got there, there was nothing ...

Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

Any more news on these extra Citaros Worcester are getting ? I asked on another forum and was told that Leicester aren’t expecting any of Worcester’s Streetlites - they are expecting Streetlites and Volvos from West of England, and I think some Streetlites from South Yorkshire. We should definitely...
