Stagecoach Heritage Bus

Post by AdamH » 19:58 Thursday 7th July 2016

Before you all tell me off, I know it's not part of the Midland Red (South) fleet but it's their sister company so I'll post here...

Spotted today working a Service 41 in Tewkesbury, didn't get a fleet number, but it was a Stagecoach single-deck in Heritage livery for Cheltenham District. Looked nice (but not as good as Worcester's two :lol: ). Anyone have any details or photos?

If it was the red and cream one it has been around for a little while.

I think that was it. We were heading in opposite directions so I didn't get much chance to take a look. The text along the top would imply it's been 7-years... :shock:

I think it may be a new Enviro 300 now.

I have seen the bus AdamH refers to in Tewkesbury on numerous occasions and always meant to grab a photo but alas it was always travelling in the opposite direction :shock:

It's a very nicely done almost 'conservative' looking Heritage livery

I believe it's this bus pictured here

Stagecoach 37246 Cheltenham Spa 1 070915g-L.jpg

I will grab my own photo if the chance arises :twisted:

I don't think that was the one I saw... I only got a quick look at it but I'm sure it wasn't an Enviro.

Routemaster JJD565D in Stratford Blue livery noted just outside Stratford upon Avon this afternoon on "wedding duties". :)

Presumably this is still owned by Stagecoach and normally based at Stratford ??
I've got a feeling it's been at Stratford for a long time now, but I cannot see any mention of it in my 2003 copy of "Stratford Blue" by Robert.L.Telfer.

Does anyone know when it first came to Stratford; - and was it Ensign or Stagecoach that moved it here?

Thanks.

Yes, JJD 565D is still owned by Stagecoach (fleet number 12565) and I think is still normally based at Stratford.

Details of its history are on this site here - http://midlandred.net/vehicles/fleetlis ... 5Ejjd565d$
