Just to show that it is not just "First" who run older buses - P905RYO,V614DJA and V617DJA were all at work in Stratford upon Avon yesterday. :D

Thanks Andrew for your interesting updates on the Stratford area.

(I really miss the days of Midland Red buses in the old garage).

I know a few drivers at Stratford who took jobs there when Redditch depot was sold to Diamond. Sounds like it's a nice place to work, and the last I heard they have a waiting list of people wanting to work there... That's something you don't get at Worcester!

Thank you for the complement. To be honest, my main reason for going to Stratford is to see what tour coaches are about. Anywhere from Scotland to the south-east can be represented. And to be fair to Stagecoach, the vast majority of vehicles observed are "fairly new". I think seeing the three older d/d's [ in the space of about twenty minutes ] was a bit of a fluke , but a nice one ! ! Also, Diamond usually have "newer" vehicles on their Stratford services.
Cheers. 8-)
