:o What was the van driver thinking! He clearly didn’t look round the taxi before overtaking it unless he didn’t see it turning or he was too close so his only option was to go round it and hit the bus face on instead :? ... Glad the bus driver is ok though!

Made a great job of that Phil! :D
So many idiots on the road, one of the reasons why I want a job that doesn't involve driving any more!

I see in the current fleet list, Adam, that you have this listed as "withdrawn", rather than "in store".

I believe this is the accident damaged one, and that it went to (Plaxtons ?)
for repair ?

Do you know if that repair is proceeding, or is it to be scrapped ?

It is still on the books and was listed as being at Worcester on the planned fleet list sent to me by the MD earlier in the week. At the time of the accident it was so badly damaged it was clear it wouldn’t be back on the road for some time so I chose to mark it as withdrawn to reflect this.

It is currently being rebuilt and the company have not yet been given a date for its return.

If this is correct, then I am very impressed considering the amount of damage!

Ahh, I see! That’s a shame I was getting excited... I hope it returns in ‘Urban 2’ livery! :D
