And I've seen one multiple times on the 7:50 service 51 to Pershore High School and then see the same bus on the 8:48 X50 returning to Worcester. However, I guess that will be a daily occurrence as the bus graph shows the bus does a 144 before and then goes on to operate the 144A for the rest of the day. :D

How to confuse passengers - put a green Volvo on the 36 to the Hospital, seen this afternoon in Warndon, with 67664 behind and me in 47519 on the other side of the road and you have three completely different liveries all together.
What a pity I didn't have my camera on me!

Yes, that is correct.

Number 6 arrived on Thursday afternoon (69452) and was half-dressed by end of play on Friday. It entered service on Monday morning.

They seem to be arriving once every 10 days or so.

I have been asked to take photos for the launch event but as yet nobody has been given a date!

The only other buses that will be allowed into Birmingham under the new regulations will be the 65 plate Streetdeck’s and the 65 plate streetlite’s (13 vehicles) as they are the only other Euro 6 buses at Worcester. I believe the 64 plate streetlites are fitted with Euro 5 engines. Hope this helps :D

Another green Volvo is making its way from Leicester to Worcester as I type. So far these have all arrived in fleet number order so my guess is it will be 69453.
