I am guessing the older or poorer condition Citaros.

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)
Only the best for Worcester garage, but those 14 plate Streetlites are only being cascaded because Sheffield is about to enforce a CAZ Clean Air Zone at end of the year and these buses are not to Euro 6 standard but deemed perfectly OK to pollute Worcester's streets. Ever feel like a second class citizen? Hope the new Cymru and West of England management procure a fleet of new Euro 6 single-deckers and clear out all those Citaros - dream on!

Horrified that the second-hand E200s require work to prepare them for service, that glowing new paint job seems to be hiding a multitude of mechanical problems - the old saying 'never judge a book by its cover' is very apt in this case.

Pasty wasn't very impressed at the state of them - he is looking forward to another 6 month holiday at the end of the month, he said he might just get them finished before he leaves!

Regarding the StreetLite's. After looking on BusTimes.org, I would say the six destined for Worcester could be 47466-9 & 474672/3 (10.8m variants - like our 64 plate batch) ;)

That looks to be a good call. :)

The E200s from Hampshire went to Stoke.
Interestingly , the latest UKbuses fleet list for First Midlands still has some E200's "allocated" to Worcester. 67173/4/8/9. :? :? Any idea's folks ?? :roll:

The 2x E200s are not bad really but obviously as we don't keep a single part for them apart from an oil filter we've been waiting for bits. It been decided that before they go into service they need CCTV , handbrake warning systems and greenroad fitting.
