Just noticed that Christmas is only on the nearside... The driver’s side is totally blank!

If anyone saw 67664 today (Tuesday 18th December) the elf on board was none other than Red Midland (probably wishing he had magic powers to be able to arrange that all the Enviros returned to Worcester)

Unlike previous years, it hasn't been allocated to a special city-route turn this year. As a result it is turning up all over the place and the money collecting for charity isn't going well... Last year it was used mostly on the busy 30 and 35 routes, yet it was on the S23 this morning and the S3 in the afternoon with a 36 somewhere in the middle!! 🙄
Not sure where 67664 was due to go next, but I managed this nearside three-quarter shot in Crowngate Bus Station early this afternoon Thursday 20 December 2018; we only need an offside photo to complete the trilogy for the record as it is very doubtful that there will be a 'Christmas bus' in Worcester next year - nor any Enviro 300s for that matter.

Here is an offside shot of 67664 working the 35 service, complete with Christmas message vinyls visible!

I have the Santa Bus to work the early 420 followed by a 363 this morning. Some of the fairy lights are still working too!

Merry Christmas! 🎄
