Re: Visiting Buses at Worcester

Yep, I've been told to pull the engine out of the DD and fit it into 66963.... the fact that it's not quite the same has been ignored.

Re: Withdrawn Coach 20201

Adam, the gearbox went a couple of weeks ago but apparently it is beyond repair as it needs a new case.

Re: Ex-First Enviro Withdrawn

Bit late sorry :roll: Was informed that it's sat and withdrawn because the engine went bang in a big way. One of the connecting rods has come through the engine block. :cry:
Rogers Rescue recovered it back.

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

67647 has had all the seat covers replaced today. It is waiting for the Worcester vinyl on the front panel but we're out of stock. I was told that it's going to a show on Sunday...

Re: Visiting Buses at Worcester

And still here in bits.... it's been a very busy few weeks, but I've got all the parts now and hope to carry on with the rebuild this week.

Re: FMR: Tridents Going to Kernow?

The current plan is that 33039 is going to Cornwall. 33042 is very likely to be scrapped as one of the connecting rods is hanging out of a big hole in the cylinder block :roll:

Re: Withdrawn Coach 20201

The gearbox is supposed to be going to a place in Nottingham to be checked to see if its cost effective to repair..... It does need doing really as there is a raft of work lined up for 20202 over the next couple of weeks and a backup is always nice
