Hitting the road

The first of the recent additions to the Citybus fleet have hit the road this week…

The Dennis Darts are already red enough for now so are being placed into service once their blinds have been sorted out and Go Cornwall names have been added.

Plymouth Citybus 252
Meanwhile the Dennis Tridents are undergoing full refurbishment and repainting before they hit the road. 481 is first out.

First Kernow Fleet News

The new Mercedes Citaro buses for the Truro Park & Ride have been delivered: WK15DME/F/O/S/U/V/X.

Other buses continue to trickle in from elsewhere within First Group:

31518 M847DUS Volvo Olympian Alexander from First Potteries

34311 L311PWR Volvo Olympian N Counties from First Potteries

The former Park & Ride Scanias are now being repainted with 65762 now in the standard First Group livery. If this is to stay in Cornwall it looks like the much fabled new livery for Cornwall is not going to happen. It sounds like there will be quite an influx of newer low floor buses later in the year and these will all be in standard First livery with KERNOW names.

Phew! Hopefully things will quieten down a bit now….
