If there are 2 coaches coming back, hopefully Padmore St will get the late night Worcester - Oxford rail replacement work again.
That would be nice.

There is also a rumour Worcester will be getting two replacement Coaches for Christmas... ho ho ho!
Was this just a Christmas wish that never came true... Or are we still going to see some new coaches?

I'm told their replacements didn't turn up so we have to wait a bit longer.

53122 will be following soon, and will donate its engine to 53207. Seatbelts will be fitted and once it has been re-certified (and MOT tested) it will go back to Potteries for a repaint. It will then be the long-awaited additional seat-belt vehicle for the Herefordshire Contracts. Taking the pressure off the high-mileage 53802.

53207 is apparently a "Slimline" version, but is 9.5M long -- I guess that should still be manouvreable enough.

Also I believe it's one of those that ran for Astons,
in Herefordshire.

Excellent! Do you think it will receive 'Village Links' branding? Or not as it is only a back up vehicle for 53802...

Don't know for sure but my guess is it will.
