I love the colours I doubt they will keep them like that though

Just spotted 53062 (VX53 OER) on the car park (also known as powick roundabout) heading into Worceester in the new Riveraider base colours. So looks like she is the second bus for the 31. Shame we haven’t found another newer solo :roll: :lol:
she sure does like car parks!

The different moquette is because they have been refurbished internally, and are now waiting attention by the bodyshop before going for painting. This is only speculation, but I should think that they will go to Stoke to be completed.

Now that 53062 has been repainted into Riversider livery. I wonder what will happen with 53061. Will she be Withdrawn... Or will she be kept, if kept I reckon she could be put in 'Spare Bus' livery (which I think would suit the Solo bodywork quite well ;) )

It's been a while & all fleet movements have most likely been delayed due to the pandemic.

But has anyone heard any news regarding the remaining Slough Citaro's - Are they due anytime soon. To allow the release of our 5 StreetLite Max's to Leicester...

Also any recent talk regarding our potential DD replacements...

It would be nice if the 7 '12 plate' E400s sat at Stoke/Leicester were to replace our 51 & 54 plate deckers!
