It’s a shame they haven’t been repainted already as it would seem slightly too late if they were to do them now...
You are probably right, and my guess is that our MD will probably want to replace them with much newer DDs anyway, if he can, (and I couldn't complain about that ! )

33043 is in the bodyshop at the moment. It is supposed to have some soldering done, on what I don't know, before being collected by someone from Manchester. I believe it is destined for a college of some description, but I don't think I'll volunteer to drive it there, as the last time I had it, it sounded terrible and appeared to be on its last legs. I will be sorry to see it go however.
Thanks for that update bmmoboy !

I notice this rebrand is only an external lick of paint, it doesn't stretch to a retrim.

I'm hazarding a guess here but I wonder if it will be a Unibus livery?
