Re: National express

Just seen a NXWM Grey platinum decker going down mill lane in drakes Broughton? Full of passengers from what I could see... Apparently the plum festival is on in Pershore so it could be to do with that... But it eeemed to be going on the wrong direction, so maybe the city driver was lost out here in...

Re: Worcester Fleet Movements mid/late 2019

Update from local management: Two 14 plate Solos have been earmarked for Worcester, and these are to be repainted in a new Service 31 livery. 56065 (and one other) are expected to be repainted before entering service, in Urban livery. The Citaros are due soon, and will be delivered to Worcester bef...

Not the ones mentioned above, but Nigel did post elsewhere that 53061/2 will be repainted soon.
53062 is back on road today (used on service 37 according to bus times) after being off for two weeks and 1 day. Has it just come back from re-paint? :?

Re: "New look" Rugby Services

...Unless the rugby fans have previousley got the bus numbers mixed up and tried to get on the wrong bus for the return journies? :? All the time! For most of them it’s the only time they ever get on a bus and those with a bit of drink inside them can get a bit difficult when they go the “wrong way...

Re: "New look" Rugby Services

I don't know how much the actual services have changed, but the X15/ 16 service numbers have been dropped and changed as shown, - for the new season. https://www.firstgroup.com/worcestershire/plan-journey/timetables/?source_id=3 It seems like another non-essential and confusing change! If it is not...

Re: My Ideal/Future FMR Fleet List

In terms of ‘Dream Fleets’ are there any members who would prefer to see some of the VX54/05 E300s which went to Stoke not that long ago come back to Worcester? (Maybe in place of the OGI Citaros given their age, or just for nostalgia reasons given they were new to FMR) Yes or even better it would ...

Re: Worcester Fleet Movements mid/late 2019

When 33401-5 go to Essex it would be nice if 3 of there Volvo B7TL Gemini's came back to WR in return, they could replace 32066/7 (which are getting old) & 33404 (if it is also transferring to Essex) These B7TL could be in the form of 37015-7 which are a similar age to 32643-6 from Leicester (as I d...

A real shame about the continued inconsiderate parking which is a pain for the buses to manoeuvre around! :x

Re: Worcester Fleet Movements mid/late 2019

No mention of 32066/7 only that the Tridents would go, so I can only assume they are to stay. Not sure how compatible they are with the newer Volvos that are already at Worcester (Salt Road and Centros) or the double-decks due to arrive though. I agree the Darts/Trident move to Leicester seems odd....
