Double Decker Work.

Post by DD12 » 20:09 Friday 13th October 2017

I got a nice surprise this afternoon, when I saw a fully loaded Astons DD on a school contract that I did not know about.

It was Pershore High School - Peopleton - Upton Snodsbury - Crowle.
- Lucky, lucky, children !

Astons appear to have only their 4 Scania DDs once-more, and I think these were a "very sound purchase" by Astons.

Ah yes, that would be the PS07 contract. It has been run by Astons with a Decker for a few years now. Before that there used to be two separate contracts; PS07 for Crowle & PS09 for Peopleton. I guess they finally realized they could fit them all on on large bus rather than using two coaches with few pupils on board!

It appears that Astons have acquired another Scania DD from the same batch -- V302EAK, in a green livery. I saw it today on what I believe was the S49 in Worcester, but displaying PS07, which are both Astons contracts (unless that has just changed !)
I find this quite entertaining, as V311EAK was acquired when almost new, about 17 years ago, along with brand-new W475DAB, and two more were acquired a year or two before the Veolia takeover.

(Does anyone know if Astons have got a new base yet ?)

The livery would be that of the Holmeswood Group , looking at pictures on Flickr. :)
