I saw it yesterday by the cathedral whilst at the Victorian Fayre I presume it's not normally a DD on that service :o

It's frequently a Decker on the 149/150.

Usually on schooldays in the Monday to Friday week of course, but not on Saturdays or during school holidays. The 149 was generally in the hands of the ex-Johnsons Optare Metrodeckers 40844 or 40845 since the takeover of the Henley-in-Arden operators stage carriage services. These buses now seem to be operating on ex-Midland Classic service X11 from Six Ways, Aston to Burton-upon-Trent which appears to be a contract working looking at the early and late timings on the timetable. I hadn't seen 40625 in Worcester before, hence the photograph, but then I don't get into the City much these days so those eagle-eyed among the enthusiasts on this site please let me know if it has been spotted during the summer months!

It's on it today (5th Dec). I've just ridden it from Redditch to Worcester. Was chatting to driver and he said it basically stays on the same running card all week Mon to Fri. I've known it be swapped out for the lunchtime journey with a different vehicle but mainly the same bus stays on the 149 / 149S card all week.
