New Heritage Bus

Post by AdamH » 07:03 Wednesday 14th August 2019

Midland Red (South) Limited (Stagecoach Midlands) has repainted one of their buses into late 1960s BMMO livery, much like 67664 once was. This vehicle is at Banbury depot to celebrate their 100 years.

Just to be a bit picky (sorry Adam) Banbury depot is Stagecoach Oxfordshire

Always been an odd one. Legal lettering on the side and the Ops licence is Midland Red (South) Limited which is Stagecoach Midlands, yet the operations are run under the Stagecoach Oxfordshire name... Just to give everyone a head ache!

Does anyone have a photograph of it that they can post please?

Has anyone seen the Wallace Arnold B10M/Plaxton parked in Midland Red South's Railway Terrace yard? Don't think it is for use on Megabus.....

I know it was hoped that the bus would be ready for the Buses Festival this Sunday, appropriately being held just down the road from Banbury, so fingers crossed it will be ready for then...

Found these on FB. Not seen it in person yet so I’m hoping it’ll be at Gaydon.
