Incoming Olympians for First

First D&C Olympians now in service in Plymouth.

First 34049 P249UCW
Finally I have a new camera and am able to start taking photos for Plymothian Transit again. I had a spare twenty minutes this yesterday lunchtime so tried the new camera on Royal Parade and a few shots down at Bretonside.
One of the photos I managed to get is of 34049 P249UCW which has recently joined us from Bristol. Sister bus P252UCW was out on the 7 today but I never managed to catch that one. I must admit I do like this body style.
More photos to follow over the next day or so!
