Re: Engine Upgrades

In regards to older vehicles being upgraded, NXWM have upgraded 51 plate Volvo B7TLs and 52 plate Tridents to Euro 6 so I assume Worcester’s are possible too 8-) The best thing to come out of this for me will be a largely improved variety on the 144 again, of course when Salt Roads are not available...

Re: 33043

It’s also the lowest seating capacity being an ex London bus with short wheel base. Something which I dont understand why First continue to specify. In Bristol, Glasgow and Kernow where the newest MMC400s are, they are mainly short wheelbase, with just 8 regular seats on the lowest floor space, plu...

Re: TRACKING !

I’ve been watching this site grow for many months now, back in early November I noticed a few bus types were added to some Midland Classic vehicles. Ever since I have watched it grow and have been waiting for First Worcestershire, and hopefully the rest of NXWM to be added soon, so pretty much know ...

Re: Clearway/Wheelers of Catshill.

Just remembered to post that PEZ was noted in action on the Charfords yesterday. Maybe the Primo has been sold to Kevs :lol:

Re: FMR Mercedes Citaro acquisitions

5 Citaros noted today, 64035 which I believe hasn’t worked yet, with an engineer passed through Crowngate before disappearing, presumably back to depot. 64021/45 on 35 as they should be, plus 64013 on there and 64018 on 33. Some photos attached below - 64035 at Crowngate and 64021/18, 64013 and 6404...

20611 is indeed in WR garage, still in "Rail Air " livery, but as it's at the "bodyshop" end, a rub-down may be imminent.
Here’s a photo of it at Heathrow Terminal 5 on June 30th 2018 catching the summer sun

Re: FMR Mercedes Citaro acquisitions

There was very nearly a "Nimrod" liveried bus on the 11.15 Catshill today, I tried to swap it with my green Volvo on the 10.45 but to no avail, it was then spotted on the Catshill and swapped for a Trident before departure. I am dying to try one of the Citaros out on the open road, looks like I wil...

Re: FMR Mercedes Citaro acquisitions

:lol: it was only a matter of time! Meanwhile, these shots of Citaros in action on city service taken earlier this morning in Crowngate bus station; I’m liking that first one Tim, both rather vintage, one potentially here to stay for several years, the other (32066), potentially on limited time.
