KX57FML noted in Droitwich this morning on lay over between workings. This vehicle has operated for both OFJ Connections and Tellings Golden Miller. Just a thought, if Kevs take a liking to stage work, they would be well suited to take over the 147 service to Romsley as their depot is on the route. :idea:

Thanks for the feedback, KEV's wouldn't have much dead mileage if they were to take over the 147!

I heard that KEV's may be taking on the 356 from Worcester to Grafton Flyford via Tibberton and Crowle. On reflection, this may have been a 'Chinese Whisper' as the route number is almost identical to the 355.

The "dead miles" that WCC clock up must be a down-side to the operation, I do not have any idea on how the legislation on operating centres works but I have always thought that WCC could stable the vehicle used on the 147 at Chadsgrove School in Catshill during the week - they already have a number of their own mini-buses based there. :?:

I have been told that Kevs have two "school buses" , one of which is WA54GPK which was new to Webberbus. Also I can report the relocation of their premises to a lorry park [ Waldrons] ?? which is on the old A 38 at Lydiate Ash at rear of Swan Street Coaches depot. :)

I have just seen a post on Tony Hunters West Midlands Bus Photo's site stating that Kev's are taking over the operation of the 147 in February . . . . . :idea: It will operate between Halesowen and Bromsgrove Railway Station. :)

I don't think so. WCC did want to link it with the Stourbridge route, but seeing as that contract was not awarded they may have changed their plans.
