The babies have taken over

First now run the newest buses on Plymouth City services

The swap of 09 reg Enviros for the older 06 reg Volvo Wrights has been done and dusted and the baby Enviros have settled into service in Plymouth. It is now rare for anything other than an Enviro to appear on the 15 at least. The smaller size makes it a lot easier to get around Asda at least where the longer Volvo's often struggled, so the smaller buses are more suited for the route. I have to say I prefer the Volvos though as they are more comfortable and a lot quieter! That's not to say there is anything wrong with the Enviro's - they are nice buses and a lot better than the older Darts, its just that the Volvos were really nice buses (even if they were wasted on the 15 to be fair). Finally managed to catch one on camera a week ago which I have only just managed to upload. First 44919 YX09AHF (by didbygraham) First 44919 YX09AHF (by didbygraham)
