Citybus Catch up - Part three

Part three of my Citybus catch-up series looks at the second batch of Dennis Darts that arrived in 2001. These were first in the fleet to carry to new style registration numbers, and indeed Citybus were among the few operators to place '51's into service on the 1st day of the new series. They were the second half of a batch of ten Pointers for 2001 but are separated from their sisters (44-48) by the three Volvo B6s 51-53 which are remarkable survivors in a city of Darts and still continue in service to this day. Anyway, lets get on with the photographs of this batch as they have been caught on camera this year...
