Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

33043 is in the bodyshop at the moment. It is supposed to have some soldering done, on what I don't know, before being collected by someone from Manchester. I believe it is destined for a college of some description, but I don't think I'll volunteer to drive it there, as the last time I had it, it ...

It’s a shame they haven’t been repainted already as it would seem slightly too late if they were to do them now...
You are probably right, and my guess is that our MD will probably want to replace them with much newer DDs anyway, if he can, (and I couldn't complain about that ! )

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

I know this might of been asked before but I'll ask just in case it hasn't - are the tridents (33401-5) getting the urban 2 fuscia front look? I'd love to see them get a repaint and a retrim -- -- they won't be 15 years old until November, and First issued an edict that all DDs should do 17 years (...

Re: TRACKING !

The latest odd thing to appear on the tracker is that apparently one of the training vehicles was used on the 35 at 13:30 yesterday (18th March)... :? :lol: I spotted that too, and wondered if it might have been a training exercise to teach someone how to programme a ticket machine and test that it...

A vehicle claiming to be 66697 is now listed on the bustimes system, and shown to be operating the 363 today ( -- including the "GPS trace"), -- -- and I believe it :D

42892

According to the bustimes.org tracking service, 42892 has been returned to service and is on the 144 heading north, as I type !! -- -- (Or is it being driven along that route by a mechanic, but with a "live" ticket machine ??) I've been looking at the tracking info / system a lot in recent days and ...

Salt Road 2019

Can anyone tell me why FMR is using some vehicles on the full B'ham+Worcester service that are NOT Euro 6 green volvos in Salt Road livery ? -- -- there are 12 of them ! Tonight, as I type, 47517 and 66699 are apparently being used. Also, is there still a separate rota of drivers that only do the 14...
