Re: Diamond Droitwich

Slight correction... the 133 contract was not awarded, so Diamond will run it on an emergency basis (if they agree).

Re: Diamond Droitwich

There were two contracts in Droitwich. One for the 19/22 group and another for the 20. I understand LMS have won the latter and Aston’s have the other. I also believe Diamond have kept the 133. First bid on all of these. The 294/5 contract wasn’t offered, and I’m not sure when that is due. The contr...

Re: Diamond Droitwich

The 303 is a commercial operation, so there isn’t a contract to be renewed. A couple of years ago Diamond managed to get their name on Worcestershire County Council’s list of banned operators, so would not have been able to bid for this work. I spoke with a Diamond manager a few months ago and he to...

Re: "Refreshed 144" !

... And Adam, - has the company involved you in any of the forthcoming publicity, photos etc ?... Nope. I have been given a copy of the final livery for the green buses to publish on this site once they are officially launched, but as yet I haven't been given a date for when that will be. The photo...

Contacting me...

Just a note to warn anyone that wants to contact me... I have discovered that my email address is not working for some reason, and it looks like it has been down since Monday but I have only just noticed! I am trying to fix things but not getting very far at the moment. If you have emailed me in the...

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 No, they go out in the order they are parked over night. I managed to get a couple of photos ...

Re: "Refreshed 144" !

This is true. The first two that arrived started their life at Wells depot and are still in quite good condition. I have driven both now and they are very nice to drive with lovely smooth gear changes (unlike the Enviro300) and superb brakes that are very easy to judge (unlike the Volvo Plaxtons). T...
