I was only told of the six, which will be a direct replacement for the same number of Solos.

Thanks Adam.

Another question (Going a bit off topic) When the new 31/31A/31U timetable is introduced on the 24th March do you know if there is an increase of vehicles needed to run the services? As I see from the October bus graph that only 2 Streetlite's & 1 Solo were originally needed.

I have just noted on Tony Hunters excellent WMBusphotos site that the latest First fleet changes list have 64035/44/45 being reallocated from Slough to Worcester. :?

The Citaros are supposedly to be used on 35's, but as yet, I haven't found out if they will be receiving any special livery.
And having checked photos on Flickr - keep them in the dark blue - save on repainting them at Thorntons. :P

Well spotted Andrew !

It's a shame the "cut-off" date for the info means that only the 3 are shown.

Worked some 35's on Saturday, the running card said Mercedes Citaro - just a bit premature!

I'm quite impatient to see these Mercs, and I'm wondering how many (for sure), and what livery -- I'm hoping they WONT feature yellow (as the 35 used to be the "Yellow Line") !

.... and now that our "Mechwr26" has left us, will we ever know if they are being upgraded to Euro 6 ??

I've seen the livery design, there is no yellow.

Will it be, basically, the purply-pink cerise/off-white/blue, urban two livery ?

- or will it be something profoundly different, (I wonder) ? :mrgreen:
