The home of anything and everything to do with transport in and around Plymouth for over 14 years!
Quite a bit to look forward to over the coming months: The next batch of Enviro 400Citys double deckers should be due fairly soon with some secondhand Enviro 200s from London also heading our way. Leaving Plymouth will be the Volvo / Wrights and more of the older double deckers.
After a quiet period struggling with a rubbish computer I am now back up and running regular posts again. New fleet lists etc will also follow over the coming weeks...
