As the heritage Enviro will be replaced, how bout having one of the Mercedes in the heritage livery? ;) (However, I don’t think it would suit one of these buses myself)


I agree on that that done think it would on the Mercedes but maybe on the Plaxtons

Found this on the internet, and reckon a Citaro looks quite well in red! However, red seems to look good on most modern buses.

Personally speaking I think it should be one of the 63*** Streetlites as most have been Worcester buses all their life apart from the mix up when some went to Leicester as much as it would be good seeing a thorntorns brand new refurbished citaro or a Barbie 3 Paxton which yes I agree needs a repaint however they are old veolia buses and the citaro have been all over the South I just thinking we want to commemorate Midland red we need a always Worcester bus which got me thinking how about 63358 as it will need a refurb/repaint anyway after the crash on the cross and it is still in store.. makes sence to me.. don't know about others ;)

A Streetlite looks better than I thought in this link, but bear in mind these buses are not very popular with passengers and drivers due to their snatching, jerky nature;
