Vehicle and Fleet discussions for First Midland Red Buses Limited or its predecessor, Midland Red West Limited.
Sorry Pasty, but I do like the Citaros. They have good visability from the cab, pull away well, especially from places like Prospect View, or roundabouts when you need a good turn of speed, and seem to simply glide over the many thousands of speed humps in Worcester. The driving seats are comfortable and I enjoy working on them. I cannot wait until we get some more for the Malvern services (if that is still happening) - anything to get rid of the StreetMax's. However, the old Enviro300's were a good bus, real plodders, and gave everything that was asked of them. I also liked the 200s, especially 44514, which took off from traffic lights like a Ferrari.
Sadly , the "big wigs" will take more notice of the accountants that the folk who work on them / drive them . . . .
