Re: Autumn service changes ??

Which route are the 51, and 54 taking between Worcester and Pershore? I see 52 and 53 are being interworked to provide an hourly service via Norton. It's certainly a positive change as that area is lacking in service. Must say I am surprised by the amount of changes this year. First are really putt...

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

You have raised a good point there. I too like it when operators use school buses on normal services as well as schools as it gets them out and about more (not just 2 journeys a day) My guess is that they have realised that the DD's could be used during the day instead of just sitting around back at...

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

I agree, and I'm glad that 53802 is a "Slimline" version of the Solo ! - I think that FMR might have to acquire some more smaller buses; - BUT, in Cornwall, they use "full-size" vehicles on the narrow lanes, and the drivers seem to "proceed with caution", while other drivers can often see them comi...

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

That solves the issue involving seat belts as 53802 is fitted with belts which is presumably why they want it! Also I find its a bit odd using fairly large vehicles (Enviro's & Darts) on routes such as the 417 & 675 that negotiate small villages ad narrow lanes! Although I only say this as Astons no...

Re: Autumn service changes ??

WOW! Certainly a lot of changes this year. Must say i's actually quiet excited, especially for the new 50's! Does anyone know if any buses will be re-branded for the specific X50/51/52/53/54/S51 services? I would guess that the current 3 X50 branded Centro's would be the most likely candidates to be...
