I guess this means the heritage livery will be no more as the ‘Midland’ vinyls will probably not be reapplied after Xmas considering it will be departing for potteries soon! Maybe it will transfer to potteries just before Christmas so then it can be in use as ‘Santa bus’ there too! :o

67664 is on the road in Santa livery. I don’t think there are fairy lights this year, just the graphics. I haven’t seen any recruitment posters for Elves or Santas either, so not sure if that’ll be happening again this year.

Just seen at approx. 5.15 at Whittington island with an inbound 51, I didn't notice any fairy lights.

Unlike previous years, it hasn't been allocated to a special city-route turn this year. As a result it is turning up all over the place and the money collecting for charity isn't going well... Last year it was used mostly on the busy 30 and 35 routes, yet it was on the S23 this morning and the S3 in the afternoon with a 36 somewhere in the middle!! 🙄

Ahh, I thought I’d seen a red bus passing through Drakes Broughton earlier in the day so it must of been Santa passing through on his Enviro shaped sleigh!!! :D :lol:
