Re: My Ideal/Future FMR Fleet List

They were all new in November 2004 but problems with 42894 saw it sat at Worcester depot unused for 4 months before being registered. Hence the 05 plate and not 54 like the others. Good God !! -- I never knew that ! -- I did as many visits to Padmore Street as I could around that time, but I had a ...

Yes. Rather than wait for Stagecoach to figure out how to get me to Stroud depot to retrieve my car, I phoned my son and got a lift from him.
Good !

Re: Worcester Fleet Movements mid/late 2019

When 33401-5 go to Essex it would be nice if 3 of there Volvo B7TL Gemini's came back to WR in return, they could replace 32066/7 (which are getting old) & 33404 (if it is also transferring to Essex) These B7TL could be in the form of 37015-7 which are a similar age to 32643-6 from Leicester (as I ...

Re: Buses Festival Gaydon August 18th

Absolutely great day at Gaydon but alas the VR did not make it home. The engine let go in Tewkesbury and we are now waiting recovery. 😥 Damn ! -- if I'd been able to go, I would have been able to ask you 100,000 questions about buses, and you wouldn't have been able to escape !! Are you back yet ??

Re: Worcester Fleet Movements mid/late 2019

Loads of stuff to think about and chat about, above -- -- Thanks Adam, and Mr.Egg ! I am VERY sad that we are going to lose 33401-5, but it was going to happen eventually. -- I was hoping that when the time came we would get c.2012 double-deckers as replacements, -- not older than that. But, like th...

Re: Worcester city day tickets

This matter has been discussed before on here, and I said I would contact First about it, but unfortunately I didn't -- -- I wasn't 100% sure I would be "justified and correct" to do so, but now I am. It's a VERY easy matter for First to put right, but I've found in the past it's a waste of time usi...

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

20612 is now WR according to http://www.ukbuses.co.uk/fleet/firsteastengland.pdf which has just been updated.

(it also shows 53155 as WR, but incorrectly shows 42892, 93, 94 as withdrawn).
