Looks very nice! Do you know what is says on the green strip above the window at the rear?

It says "connecting communities".

That photos was taken and posted with my mobile and it wasn't until I looked on the big screen at home that I noticed it is blurred. I'll post some better ones soon...

Also took this at the motorway services on the way back. Not so much bright sunlight in this shot.

66694 has now lost the X50 route branding and is showing Village Links. Also, many vehicles are now adverting contactless payments.

Although 67653 was transferred to Potteries last week, it decided it didn’t want to go and had itself a little water leak when the Stoke staff arrived to collect it. So although it is now owned by Potteries it is still parked at Worcester, and when the contractors came yesterday to fit the advertising for Worcester’s new contactless payment system they decided to do this bus too!

I’ve seen two buses in the new Malvern livery. These are 35156 and 63363...

Check out the rear ends!

Wow. That’s certainly eye catching! :shock: Will the other buses have other things that you can do on the bus other than perfecting your quiff? :lol:

63363 says you can check the quality control of your cupcakes, so I guess they will.
