These would be good/look good on service 144 (if they weren't getting the 59 plates) They would look good in Worcester's fuschia frounted livery too... Although they probably need to be looking at new midi buses rather than full sized ones (unfortunately) :roll:

53802 has been used this morning for route learning. Still with Cymru / South Wales branding.

They let you use it, even though they said that they didn't want you to in case you break it... :? :lol: Hope the teaching role is going well :)

Got a saw throat from talking too much!

Few photos of 53802's day out are now in the main website photograph library. The bus goes well, but there is a bit of a doggy connection on the boot lid switch which can make it difficult to start sometimes. Hopefully the engineers will have that sorted soon.

Not too bad for a 12 year old bus I suppose. You managed to get some good photographs :D

Just driven past the depot, and I believe I saw one of the Leicester Volvo B7TLs that we are expecting - still in "Barbie" livery.

I would much prefer some of these to enter WR service very soon (UN-refurbished), rather than us being short of buses. :geek:

Where did you see that? I haven't spotted anything.

Edit: "Red Midland" is due to finish work soon so I've asked him to have a look around and report back!

Well spotted with the Volvo, but you missed the additional StreetLite!

69453 arrived at Worcester today direct from Leicester. Unlike the original plan, this has not been to Thorntons for a refurb. There are two there at the moment but they aren't expected to be ready for at least another two weeks due to delays in getting materials for the interior refurbishment.

StreetLite 63102 is also at Worcester on loan to help meet the PVR next week when the schools return and the Ledbury/Bromyard services start.

Looks pretty tidy! The windows aren't plastered with various stickers as on the other B7RLE Centro's! It'll be interesting to see what they look like painted up for the 144's, hopefully with some branding/promotion.
