Re: New Mercedes

Canteen Gossip is that two of the newer Citaros will be painted in Salt Road livery, Well you have got me excited there :D As much as it's a shame to no longer have the variety of Volvo B7s, Tridents, Enviro 300s and Streetlites, Citaros and Volvo B7RLEs are the best suited second hand vehicles for...

Re: New Mercedes

Any idea when they will be entering service ? Looking forward to seeing these on the 144, if the plan is still for some to be emission trapped for use into Birmingham City Don’t know, but I’d booked one for tomorrow morning to take on a photo shoot for the Marketing department. I had an email this ...

Re: New Mercedes

Two more arrived at lunch time today, these are 64014 and 64016. Both are in standard Urban 2 livery. The second photo below shows 64014 parked with some of the others that have already arrived. 64016 was indoors being a bit camera shy. Any idea when they will be entering service ? Looking forward ...

Re: PEZ 3058 still at work in Bromsgrove 11 January 2018

Upto last Thursday , PEZ has been the mainstay of the Bromsgrove town services operated by Clearway/Wheelers for a couple of weeks as the Primo has not been seen by myself for some time. But the blue one has been used for three days now. We wait to see what appears on Monday !! :roll: Not somewhere...

Re: PEZ 3058 still at work in Bromsgrove 11 January 2018

I assume this is the most appropriate place to post this: No sign of PEZ but a more modern Mercedes Mini in service on the Charfird Services yesterday in Bromsgrove. Strangely, no photos of it on Flickr, apart from mine now, and not even a service number on the window. See photo below. Not usually a...

Re: Redditch Thursday 3 May 2018.

I understand that Diamond have recently bought 2 Optare Esteem bodied Volvo B7RLEs, the other being PO58KPX but it has not yet entered service. They also have PO58KPY (30408) which is based at Tividale and does the Birmingham City Centre Routes mainly. Good to see a proper bus in my opinion on the 1...

Re: "New" vehicles for Worcester?

Having travelled on quite a few Citaros in various locations, I would definitely say they are superior to all other single decks in terms of comfort and ride quality (plus they sound pretty good from an enthusiasts point of view) Would be excellent to see yet another new type at Worcester but then I...

Re: "Refreshed 144" !

Hi all,
Are the Volvos working set diagrams on the 144 at the moment or are they just on anything. Hoping to photograph one tomorrow on the 144 so knowing what journeys they operate would be useful.
Thanks
