I'm trying to persuade the MD to have the Leicester Heritage Liveried decker repainted into NBC red with Severnlink logos. After seeing what Eastern National have done with one of theirs in NBC Green livery, I think that even though it is 17 years old, a red bus would look fantastic.

I think that it is 11 different front end liveries that Worcester has at the moment - surely that must be a record for a depot of this size (unless you know differently)

I'm very much hoping for two DDs to replace 33404 + 05, otherwise there's the risk of us not having enough when there's a peak of breakdowns / non-available.

However it's possible that reduced usage by students / scholars might make single-deckers adequate as back-ups.

Also there have often been traffic jams etc ( - pre-covid) where a bus is so late that it arrives at the bus stop when the next one is due, so there could be about twice as many customers for it, -- add social distancing, and DDs become desirable, especially on the WR - Malvern, and WR - Droitwich services.

As for our coaches, 20611 is still shown on the tracker, and I'm hoping 20612 is earning £ somewhere for First Midland Red !! (?)
