Thank you Adam, that explains why all of it's logos have been removed!

With 67664 gone I just presumed the Santa Bus would be scrapped so this comes as a surprise. I guess they won't be painting it red though... :?

Not my photo...

I’ve not seen it in person yet, but looks quite well done at the rear.

Thank you for sharing this Adam! Looks great!

Odd choice of vehicle though as 63366 had only just been fitted with Worcester city logos... Does this mean 63365 is also undergoing the Christmas treatment, only it had Lost all it’s logos when I last saw it. :?

I've seen a photo of the rear of this bus on Facebook. It looks very impressive. Can I ask anyone who manages to get some good quality photos of this bus to post them up in high resolution so I can add them to the main photo archive. Thanks.

63365 is Leicester Santa bus, 63366 is Worcester”s.... or maybe the other way round!

Adam, I had just alighted from the 38 worked by 53061 after a visit to the hospital this morning and realised 63366 was coming down Angel Street on a 37 so quickly brought my camera into action only to have a large pedestrian walk into the frame just as I was about to click the button - sorry no luck! I travelled back on Diamond 303 in hope of catching it at the New Inn on the next trip, but it had been replaced by 63360. The attached very quick shot was taken with long zoom from top of the bus station; wouldn't normally publish, but as its the only picture I've managed so far here goes;
