With the arrival of these coaches, does this mean that 20202 will be withdrawn or will she carry on working for worcester alongside the new two
I would imagine that 20202 will be withdrawn when the new coaches arrive, probably due to it’s age and the fact that it will no longer be required! :)

That’s not good... :o Is this at Worcester already or have you just heard this from somewhere else?

When I zoomed into the picture I noticed that they have put the fleetnumber on the coach! I was surprised as it was neither of the ones we initially thought... It shows 20611 (LK07 CDE) This coach is the same body and has most recently operated for First Berkshire (like the citaro’s) And looking at the First Berkshire fleet list there is also 20612 & 20613.
That sounds more likely. I think they must have had a change of plan since I received the fleet list in November.

It's apparently going to be repaired before it comes to Worcester... I've already got 67639 here in bits waiting for parts and 53802 needs an engine, so we could do without another dead bus at the moment whilst we're doing these and trying to sort the Citaros out

Trident 33404 appears to be off-road again, and I'm wondering if you can tell us anything about it (when you know) please ?

It was off the road on my last day. I know this because I wanted it for my last journey! At the time I was was told it was the fuel pump that had failed again. I think this is the fourth time it's gone.

So maybe we will be getting 2 or maybe even 3 different coaches to the ones we originally thought... :D
First Berkshire is replacing the entire Heathrow - Reading Railair fleet with 9 new Scania / Irizar i6 coaches:
