20611 has returned from the paintshop, in a livery similar to the "spare" Citaros. It has now received graphics but was parked in the garage in such a way that I was unable to get a picture. I'm sure it will be out on the patch soon.

-- When was the last time that WR had a freshly repainted COACH allocated ? ! !

-- Were any of the "demoted" coaches 1002-1006 B102-106JAB repainted, under FIRST ownership ?

1003 and 1005 were both repainted under First ownership. 1003 after it was stolen and recovered from Ireland in a different livery, and 1005 after being rebuilt when the roof was caved in by a falling tree near Upton-on-Severn. Both unusual circumstances and I guess they would have seen out their days in overall red Midland Red Coaches livery like 1006 otherwise.

Thanks for posting the link, the new livery certainly looks different to any other operator's coaches, quite stylish. Will reserve judgement until I see it in the metal!

20612 (still in RailAir livery) was parked on the patch today, next to our 20611.

I haven't seen 20809 for a long time, so perhaps the permanent second coach will be 20612 ?
.... and perhaps it will work the S5, Monday to Friday !?

Fantastic, I hope so! Now we will have two matching coaches again! (well, they will match when 20612 is painted - which will hopefully be done before the start of school term!) :D

20809 has since returned to Berkshire to operate new service RA2 between Heathrow and Guildford.
