53062 Riversider.

Post by TimBrown » 14:57 Friday 2nd October 2020

Forgive my ignorance as I haven't been out and about much since start of pandemic in March 2020, but how long has 53062 been painted in Riversider livery?
It is pictured in Crowngate bus station mid morning yesterday Thursday 1 October 2020.

53062 only returned to service on 29th September after being out of action since March 25th.

She was painted before lockdown but I believe the vinyls had not been applied before then. The vinyls must have been fitted during lockdown. ;)

Thanks for the information, it might answer why I saw a 'Riversider' Solo driving steadily along Ombersley Road passed Green Lane in direction of city centre at 06-40 am on Monday or Tuesday; I assumed it to be 53065, but didn't identify it in the dark so it may have been 53062 on test prior to release back into service.

Looks like it’s had LED destinations fitted as well
