Re: Devastated Services (Coronavirus)

Also noticed that the X50 runs between Worcester and Evesham only on Sundays, that should say Worcester and Pershore

Re: 2020 Arrivals and Disposals

I drove 64034 on Tuesday and it was a pleasure to drive. Having done 953,000km (around 620,000 miles), it rattled far less than a StreetDeck with 180,000 miles on the clock. With the wood effect flooring, I heard several passengers say "Ooh look, we have got a new bus with a wooden floor - lovely". ...

Re: 2020 Arrivals and Disposals

With regards to the Citaros, I have been told that the new livery for Malvern services, "Spa" has been rejected.

Re: 2020 Arrivals and Disposals

Re: "along the Salt Road" !

We used to be allowed to use the M5 but when the roadworks started to convert it to a "Smart" motorway we were told not to. However, the motorway can now be used by all vehicles except the Tridents, which have a tendency to catch fire in some parts of the country. When 33401-5 go to Essex, this migh...

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

The different moquette is because they have been refurbished internally, and are now waiting attention by the bodyshop before going for painting. This is only speculation, but I should think that they will go to Stoke to be completed.
