Re: 1999 DRM fleet list

...I’ve still got a lot of blanks and pretty much given up all hope of identifying the “Dennis Sabre” (called “Blenheim” I think) that I used to see a lot of back around 1997/1998! :-) From PSV circle 1999. 96 GVJ 878 1983 Bedford YMP Plaxton DP45F (ex UWG882Y c.6/97 name "Blenheim") Thanks. Knew i...

Re: 1999 DRM fleet list

Move forward a year or so and he owned more low floor buses than FMR... Continuing the Bromyard theme - for a real challenge can anybody list all of Martin Perry’s fleet starting from 1 ending and 200 and whatever (including names)? I’ve still got a lot of blanks and pretty much given up all hope of...

Re: "Going in the wrong direction !"

Whilst the funding cuts definitely have hit bus usage, I think a significant amount of reputation damage was caused in Worcester in the 2001-2005 period when FMR went through the cycle of service cuts and fare rises every 6 months, and at the same time replacing the newer buses with ones that both l...

Mystery White Coach

On a rare visit into Hereford today and was passed by a white Plaxton Panther coach reg VO13AEP coming down Aylestone Hill. It had L plates on the front and rear and a big dent in the front nearside wheelarch. No operator name or address. Anybody know who it belongs to? When it comes to white Panthe...

Re: Large Rail Contract Oct 2016 - Buses on Loan

Be fair - they've been totally flogged up and down the M4 daily for last x weeks without failure and I doubt they got much love in Bristol. I'd be more disappointed by the etched seats and windows and general tiredness inside. At least they're only on loan and soon will be back to being Leicester's ...

Re: Large Rail Contract Oct 2016 - Buses on Loan

From the Newport-Bristol rail replacement, the third double decker to break down in the whole six weeks was this afternoon (a Gemini not a Streetdeck), ironically just after discussion that there'd been very few problems. No pressure on Worcester engineers to make the Tridents work then...

Re: New bus for DRM Bus

To be fair, very few of his buses get a new paint job from the one they came in - think one stayed mostly cream until he sold it, and all the other "new" ones were whatever colour Scania painted them in for loaning out before they got to him. Suspect this was brought from stock. Maybe in 5 years tim...
