Re: Village Links vehicles

No, there are less kids on the 674 this term so it has been replaced by a Dart to make life easier on the market day services that are inter-worked with that route, notability the very tight 405 on Wednesdays.

There is talk of a launch event but nothing has been decided yet. Or if it has been decided they haven't told me! 🙄

They were terribly unreliable when they first came out. I think they were under-developed and rushed to market. I seem to remember at the time First said they were not going to buy any for this reason, but they were popular with local authorities as there wasn’t much else available that offered DDA ...

Re: New Mercedes

Two more arrived at lunch time today, these are 64014 and 64016. Both are in standard Urban 2 livery.

The second photo below shows 64014 parked with some of the others that have already arrived. 64016 was indoors being a bit camera shy.
