Re: 33401 etc.

I don't know what is wrong with 33401.... :? But what I am wondering is that if we are are losing our 5 Tridents + 2 B7TL + 4 StreetDecks (?). We are going to need more than just 3 Geminis from Leicester to replace our fleet of 11 DDs... Will we get additional Geminis from elsewhere? (Maybe some fro...

New Driver Trainers

It is reported that there is a refurbished Volvo B7RLE driver training vehicle due for Worcester! Presumably this will mean the end of the road for 60340 & the new B7RLE will work alongside 60311 in the training department. :D Mr E said on a Facebook post that "At the moment it’s two for Leicester, ...

Re: 53062 Riversider.

53062 only returned to service on 29th September after being out of action since March 25th. She was painted before lockdown but I believe the vinyls had not been applied before then. The vinyls must have been fitted during lockdown. ;) Taken back on Feb 24th: https://www.flickr.com/photos/westmids-...

Great to see the branded buses on the correct routes! :roll: :lol:
Salt road bus on a 44?
Looks like a school journey on the S44 so probably a one off journey using a Salt Road bus

BusTimes tracking

For anybody who is interested, Astons made the switch to the now popular 'Ticketer' machines on Monday 14th September. As a result (due to the tracking compatibility) there vehicles are now traceable on bustimes.org. It also means you can pay using contactless on there buses! :D https://bustimes.org...

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

It's been a while & all fleet movements have most likely been delayed due to the pandemic. But has anyone heard any news regarding the remaining Slough Citaro's - Are they due anytime soon. To allow the release of our 5 StreetLite Max's to Leicester... Also any recent talk regarding our potential DD...

Re: 66820 (MX05 CEJ)

Perhaps 15 year old premium Volvos like 66820 and its sisters should be considered for service in Worcester and the 17/18 year old cramped Citaros used for driver training? That would be more logical! But we know all too well that logic is not always applied when it comes down to these decisions :l...

Re: Devastated Services (Coronavirus)

I actually saw some buses today for the first time in weeks! Astons Streetlite WF on the 332 (has this continued to run during the lockdown?) while out for a bike ride, and then later a First Streetlite Max in Barnards Green. Believe it or not Astons have been running all bus services to normal tim...
