This is the one that appeared on the "full" 144 to Brum last Monday, and thanks to the notification from Matt.W, and checking the tracker, -- I see it did the early AM X50 every day on Monday to Friday.

With the daytime 44 being reduced from 4 per hour to 3, in a couple of weeks, perhaps one StreetDeck will permanently be doing other services. (They already get taken off the Malvern services whenever they are needed elsewhere, anyway).

-- a bit worrying to learn that the rear "promo" has been removed though -- that raises the spectre that we could lose 35157 (at least) although the MD was reported as saying we would keep the StreetDecks, so perhaps it's going to receive decoration etc. for the X50 ?

Thanks Dd12, i do hope we don't loose her. Although a theory i came up with is that she could possibly be receiving a new Malvern's livery soon which could be what the new mercs use aswell? This is unlikely but we can only hope :lol: 🤞

My thoughts are it could be earmarked for use on the new 45 service which is replacing the 44 between Worcester & County Hall. Maybe it will feature new branding for this? And maybe the 45 could extend to the Parkway which should be open before the end of the year? :?
