Re: More Mercedes Ciratos

Maybe we can have some nice bendi-bus Citaros :lol: First York P+R have some and I believe they’re due to be getting more all-electric buses for the P+R services? http://ukbuses.co.uk/fleet/fwy.pdf Seriously though, I’ve not been in Worcester long enough to know if FMR are treated as a bit of a poor...

Re: New round of disposals and transfers-out.

Latest rumour is that more StreetLites are going, this time to Leicester in time for the start of the Leicester Low Emissions regulations. Any one got any idea what we’re likely to be sent/left with in return? I realise for some that more streetlites going isn’t bad news! One of those situations wh...

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

I like that livery, although the white won't stay that way for long! 20613 has transferred to First Aberdeen - and it has already been painted! Shame ours hasn't yet! :( https://www.flickr.com/photos/william-walker/40512754663/in/photolist-24HYsw4-T9fM7s-2aRA8N7-2aRAh7m-2cweiTG-QLojiu-2a3hZj4-P53dFA...

33404 - Midland Live view ALX 400

Has this vehicle been long term off the road or just not been on the 144 for a long time? Not seen for a while but just spotted on 144a service in Drotwich. Pleased to see it will around as nice livery. If it has been off the road I'm sure DD12 will be pleased to hear it's back! :)

Re: 42892

The number of posts about incorrect vehicle identities suggests a serious flaw in the current tracking - that it appears ticket machines regularly appear to not be fully reprogrammed after being moved! It would seem logical that management would have this as an important task when a change was made ...

Re: Worcester's DD usage.

Is it possible that this glitch is a driver programming the ticket machine early for their 144 return journey or maybe this isn’t possible, I know nothing about how the machines work and what restrictions on journey choice/timing they may have, just a theory! :?

Re: 'Spare Bus' Citaros

I've noticed that there is almost daily (for over a week), a spare bus on a 144A running card in the early evening. I wonder anyone pointed out to the despatchers/management that a spare bus fails to be such if it is regularly rostered. There again, maybe it just occoured that an off route/spare bus...

'Spare Bus' Citaros

Thought it may be worth splitting any continued sightings/discussions regarding the 'spare buses' into a separate topic. :)

Re: FMR Mercedes Citaro acquisitions

I saw 'Spare bus' 64035 on the 144A in Bromsgrove at about 17.30 today. Presumably these won't be able to run full 144 as not Euro 6 or have some had/due to have the upgrade?
