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". The luggage racks are still in place, thus reducing seating capacity by 3 or 4 seats, not sure when these will be removed. I think that the spa livery should be as 64034 or 38, but with the front painted a bright red (not that magenta crap like the rest of the fleet)
Something like the Potteries 'Cherry routes' livery...

Yes - I think that would be a much better livery

Possibly 37668? For Swansea - which has the same seats. The older B9 Geminis are pretty solid and with a refurb would be a step up on the Streetdecks. I had expected B9s to replace the streetdecks by now, just guess the Geminis are more popular with everyone else too.

I would guess that 33401/02/03/04/05 possibly won`t be departing Worcester anytime soon due to the current situation?

And most probaly out of use and parked up in the corner on the patch
