When I zoomed into the picture I noticed that they have put the fleetnumber on the coach! I was surprised as it was neither of the ones we initially thought... It shows 20611 (LK07 CDE) This coach is the same body and has most recently operated for First Berkshire (like the citaro’s) And looking at the First Berkshire fleet list there is also 20612 & 20613.

So maybe we will be getting 2 or maybe even 3 different coaches to the ones we originally thought... :D
First Berkshire is replacing the entire Heathrow - Reading Railair fleet with 9 new Scania / Irizar i6 coaches:

Thanks Winston! That makes more sense now! Maybe we will get all 9 of the older coaches then!!! :lol:

20611 is indeed in WR garage, still in "Rail Air " livery, but as it's at the "bodyshop" end, a rub-down may be imminent.

Here’s a photo of it at Heathrow Terminal 5 on June 30th 2018 catching the summer sun

I'll try and get some pics sorted on Monday Adam. It'll be on my phone though.
It's currently in the body shop awaiting prep for paint. Apparently it's going to be painted the same as the spare Citaros. ..

Sorry this is off-topic, but I'm hoping to attract the attention of our

Trident 33404 appears to be off-road again, and I'm wondering if you can tell us anything about it (when you know) please ?
Sorry DD. Yes Cummins have been out and diagnosed a failed fuel pump accumulator on 33404. A used pump has been found and is going to be fitted this weekend.
