Pic of one of the new arrivals at Padmore Street today, apparantly two were delivered, but I could only find one!
Hi All. Has the other E200 been found / identified yet ? I have only just realized that YX65RHO carried fleet number 44944 when with First York , so I entered First Bus 44943 into Flickr and it came up with similar vehicle YX65RHK which also had a spell with First York and was last with CT Plus Holbeck - part of the HCT group. :o :geek:

Another one is on its way from Ensign bus sometime next week.. Wigleys towed it here and took 64021 away for scrap.

Good morning.

As surmised by Andrew the vehicle should be 44943.

The link attached takes you the Ensign Bus Sales/Movements thread on 'The Bus Forum''

https://tangytango.proboards.com/thread ... ts?page=17

Scroll down to the last but one message which is a copy of a message from Ross Newman of Ensign detailing September movements. Under 'Vehicles Out' it shows 44943/44944 to First Worcester.

Lovely. And a couple of buses brought in that are under the age of 10! :shock:
Presumably replacements for the Withdrawn 43876 & 53065 (which appears to not have been used for a month & is parked up in the corner behind one of the two new Enviro's so assume she is also Withdrawn?)

The second E2200 has arrived. BOth vehicles have been inspected and require some work to get them ready for service.

Also due sometime in the next few weeks are six 14 plate Streetlites from Sheffield (whoopee do I can't wait - NOT)

Never went for the "Gold" / upgraded warranty option then ! As if mechwr26 is not busy enough already. ;)

Thanks Bmmoboy. :D
Do you know what the six StreetLite's will be replacing?
My guess is they will see off the remaining six Centro's OR the older 'OIG' Citaro's...
