The interesting combination of a silver liveried Diamond bus with Hanson fleet names on the side doing a 43 from Bromsgrove to Redditch today certainly caused some bewilderment earlier . . . . ;) And with Midland Red buses turning green . . . . . . . . :roll: :D :D
And a Hanson liveried bus with Diamond fleet names seen on the 43 today.Seen a few on the 318 but first time I've seen anything other than a 'blue diamond' on the 43.

M333SLT on the 202 yesterday morning and I travelled VX54MOU and there was a rather noticeable "clunk" every time a higher gear was engaged. :oops:
Took this shot of Diamond 30534 M333 SLT at Bromsgrove bus station this afternoon. I travelled on it from Redditch and surprised that it ran very well, good on hills and relatively smooth transmission with acceptable ride. Much nicer than the Plaxton bodied MAN's of Diamond.

YJ16DDL on the 318 this afternoon with route number only displayed on paper in front windscreen . I guess there is no need to re-programme the destination displays now . . . . . . :?

Yes it’s definatley at Kidderminster, I’ve tried looking for pictures of it but can’t find any apart from one where only the slight front of it is visible in the picture!
