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...

WMR Rail Replacements September/October 2019

I’m always on the look out for WMR Rail Replacements and found that on Sat 28th, Sun 29th September, Sat 5th & Sun 6th October there are Rail Reps from Worcester to Bromsgrove . In 2016 I remember First ran Replacements from Droitwich to Longbridge - anyone know if First will be operating these ? No...

Re: Double Deckers

More fleet movements for Midlands found on below link... Potteries to gain 6 Enviro 400 Hybrids from Glasgow, where they will be converted to diesel and then stay permanently apparently. As to what they will replace I don’t know! The Gemini’s they have are all fairly presentable with most in 25 bran...

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

20612 (still in RailAir livery) was parked on the patch today, next to our 20611. I haven't seen 20809 for a long time, so perhaps the permanent second coach will be 20612 ? .... and perhaps it will work the S5, Monday to Friday !? 20809 has since returned to Berkshire to operate new service RA2 be...

Re: Repaints 2019?

There are 11 Citaros and an Optare Solo due at Worcester over the next few months, so at least one Solo will be withdrawn, and the Streetmax's and hopefully the Streetlites, will be transferred soon. I was told several months ago that we would be getting some newer deckers to replace the Tridents, ...

Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

Any more news on these extra Citaros Worcester are getting ? I asked on another forum and was told that Leicester aren’t expecting any of Worcester’s Streetlites - they are expecting Streetlites and Volvos from West of England, and I think some Streetlites from South Yorkshire. We should definitely...

Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

Update fro the MD - there are NINE Mercedes to come to Worcester, all to be refurbished -I didn't find out where they are coming from. Random thought came to me earlier, could these be from Yourbus Derby. They were advertising some for sale last year in a magazine, pretty sure they haven’t sold the...

Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

But as First seem to be investing in new buses for Kernow it could well happen. 19 plate Enviro 200 mmc would be a better bet for Truro P&R. Thus giving Worcester some newer replacements for buses that are them selves newer. This of course is if Kernow is making enough to get new buses. It would se...
