And then there were 2! :shock:
67699 doesn't really count as it was acquired second-hand. That just leaves 67664 as the last survivor from the two batches of Enviro300s bought new by First Midland Red in 2005.

A picture of 67659 was taken on Saturday, having already entered service in Stoke!

It was to advertise free travel for people in uniform on Remberance Sunday. All Marketing is done at Potteries, so that’s where they took the photo.

I wish we could get some in the future (Maybe for a possible service to the new railway station! :D ) I'm sure they would be more reliable than a streetlite, plus they seem to be of a higher build quality!
