Re: Worcester's DD usage.

So if First carry on withdrawing old ALX 400’s in the next few years, which I won’t be surprised if they do as most of them are atleast around 18 years old currently and need to be replaced, that would mean we would have to get some new streetdecks to serve the routes that need DD’s. Yes, I am very...

Re: Worcester's DD usage.

Happy that 33043 is gone? ;) I'm not happy as such -- -- the smiling face is because I can only be 50% sure it's finally withdrawn (it's parked with the other withdrawn vehicles, and has some kind of big panel visible in the upper deck). I'm not happy that there has been another reduction in the nu...

Although there have been periods in the past when DDs have...

Re: TRACKING !

Looking at today's history for 32066 (which is a VERY messy and muddled "account") I would guess that it did the 17.30 short 144 from Worcester to Droitwich only.

Re: TRACKING !

As I am writing this, 32066 is working a 144 to BIRMINGHAM! Is this allowed with it being a Euro 2/3? I believe "anything" can be used until 1st January 2020, but First should want to use only euro 6 buses as they have had, or are receiving a share of £ for converting the 12 green Volvos to euro 6 ...

TRACKING !

What an e*fFing mess !!

I'm not a fan of the Labour Party's IMAGE of "just throwing huge amounts of money at problems", but I'd almost welcome them getting back in-power !!
