Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

I would imagine Worcester (and Stoke) would not people queuing up to buy, unlike places such as Leicester and Bristol, so Group will want to de-value the fleet as much as possible to get the asking price down. Much like they did with Kidderminster and Redditch a few years ago, and have already been...

Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

But then again our 9 newer Streetlite Max’s would probably have a higher value than 9 citaro’s even if they were to be refurbished. But if the Streetlites are needed elsewhere then alternative vehicles are needed so...

Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

I would imagine that it will still happen as any breakup/sale of First bus divisions won’t happen overnight, especially if depots are sold off separately to other operators. :? Ah ok, i was just wondering because apparently they are being refurbished,and i didnt know if first would be willing to sp...

Do I remember seeing suggestions from other forum members that National Express may be interested or just that they may be a good alternative?

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

It's 20809 YN62GXS, again from Reading (in my 2016 handbook). Don't know whether it's permanent though, and it has a different Volvo chassis to 20611 -- same body type and colour scheme though. Interesting, Thanks DD12! This was one of the coaches that was briefly on loan to First BoS/First Kernow ...

Yes, I am a definitely a fan of the Volvo B9TL's styling! They also seem to have big/wide windows to look out of (the opposite to the StreetDeck's, which have very narrow windows upstairs!) Also, the advantage to the B9TL is that they are probably up to Euro 5 standards - considerably better than ou...
