So will I. When I asked about it a few weeks ago I was told we should get an estimated delivery date this week...
Just wondering, have we got an' estimated' delivery date yet? :D

I would imagine the senior management has, but such news is often slow to filter down to the rest of us.

Note: There were three separate Forum Topics on this subject, so using the power of Moderation I have merged them all together into one.

Otherwise, I have no updates to add. Sorry! 🤣

I saw her operating the morning 30 service on Tuesday but I didn’t manage to get a picture, sadly it’s not in the urban 2 livery

That was me running dead back to the depot after working the 674 from Ledbury to Bromyard.

I've had the bus all day and I'm pleased to report Plaxtons have done a great job with the rebuild. Normally a rebuilt bus comes with more rattles than a Mothercare distribution warehouse, and while 44514 still has a generous quota of them they are now all from the back of the bus! I was expecting to get wet when it started to rain, but they have also made it watertight too, and the steering doesn't have any play either. It feels better screwed together and better to drive than it ever has since FMR acquired it. When it was based at Hereford depot it was a bus I tried to avoid when I was given a shift there.

All-in-all, not bad for one of the oldest Enviro200 Darts in existence (it's chassis number 7, so a very early example). Maybe we should thank that van driver... 😲

:lol:, it’s still a shame it’s not in the urban 2 livery as I think that would look quite nice on an enviro 200
