There are clearly more due as pointed out by Leon Daniels in an email:
B7RLEs are being released by various operating companies including West Yorkshire, Manchester, Bristol and Glasgow to form the allocation at D&C for Ugobus phase 3 in October.
Leon Daniels (Customer Service and Communications Director for First UK Bus) also now has his own Blog which can be found here. Clearly an enthusiast here!

  1. On one hand, I'm pleased FDC is bringing (quite) new buses to Plymouth. On the other hand, these are the buses that are going to be used to give Citybus the squeeze..

  2. I understand the remaining three buses of this batch 69251 to 69253 (YJ07WFT to YK07WFV) are also on their way to you shortly.

    Pictures of all are on my Flickr site at http://www.flickr.com/photos/35759580@N03/sets/72157619287684109/

    Thanks for using my pics, Sharksmith
