The Mayflower Returns!

You just never know what First is going to do next but this is a real surprise. Trident 33176 seen here yesterday at The Ride in a full repaint into Mayflower Link livery for the 93. Thanks to John Kowlaski for the photo which was snapped on a camera phone.

The original version is seen on 32802 back in July 2007. The biggest change seems to be the blue swish or wave with the Mayflower logo in white. I look forward to seeing a few more of these out and about soon. Well done First for bringing the branding back.

  1. Also spotted in Plymouth today was a Eden Project bendi-bus

  2. I wondered if it was, A friend of mine mentioned seeing something odd and it sounded like one of them. I assume its for maintenance as they have made a few trips to Plymouth over the last year or so.

  3. All three Eden artics come to Plymouth every 28 days for routine inspections etc

  4. Thanks Marc. I knew they came up occasionally - didnt realise it was that often!
