Just looking on ukbuses, and apparently a few of our e300s have ended up at bristol. Looks like they are not needed in stoke anymore

Indeed some of the E300s have moved to Bristol, for their additional Q-Buster work.
About 8 in total I think distributed between Bath and the two Bristol City depots, Lawrence Hill and Hengrove.

I rode 67632 today on route 72 to Temple Meads, the only one I saw though it was a Saturday I guess. Adam, if you want to use this pic for the site you’re more than welcome!

Was planning to get more of the architecture in the shot but a Streetlite parked in front resulted in this angle being the only clear one available.

The next batch of Mercedes Citaros not expected at Worcester until January due to having to wait for various vehicles to cascade around the group. Likewise, the Tridents are still going to Essex but they are also waiting for replacements to become available.

The troubles at Wrightbus are one of the reasons for the delays in transfers, as Leeds are waiting for some vehicles (which are complete but being held at the factory) before the vehicle cascade scan start

Simon Dunn of Rotala has intimated that vehicles they have on order from Wrightbus will be delayed by six months. As the ones for Leeds are already completed I guess the waiting time will be rather less. ;)

Its just a matter of when the factory opens again, or when the administrators will allow the vehicles to leave.
