I'm thinking of heading to Worcester tomorrow. What routes are the deckers most likely to be on?
TOM, I forgot the Saturday RUGBY services !

I see on the tracker there are only 2 deckers in service at the moment, but the rugby service from Crowngate should start 13.00.
There is also the service from County Hall to the Sixways stadium.

I saw up to 8 DDs used for a popular match last season !!

If you are already in Worcester, I hope you've got a smart-phone so you can read this !!
:oops:

I was driving 33403 this morning, and 32067 was also on the 30s. They will stay on this service all day. StreetDecks and the other Tridents were being used on Rugby today.

There have been some pleasing changes since the schools went back on Monday.

There's been a DD on the 45 all day, and on the 16.10 X50 to Evesham.

I decided to use the latter today, and was very pleased that by the top of the London Road it was evident that a DD really was needed !
Some days it has also done the 18.15 X50 from Worcester, but first it has to get back down the London Road, and the regular queue of traffic makes that timing unrealistic !

This DD on the X50 makes-up somewhat for the "unreasonable decline" of the Hanley Castle 365, and maybe the company will consider making it an all-day feature (I've occasionally witnessed heavily laden single-deckers on daytime X50s).
:P
