Tinted Tridend Ta-ta…

Thanks to a comment posted here yesterday it appears that the Tamarlink Tridents are finally being treated to a long overdue repaint.
Sadly it seems these will no longer have a specific Tamar Link livery but will receive the new standard First Bus livery, although it remains to be seen which fleet name they end up carrying - DEVON or CORNWALL - or maybe / hopefully at least some will carry something more specific like TAMARLINK?
Either way now is a good time to get photos of the pink Tridents as they clearly wont be around for a lot longer. First 32757 WA54OLP
Of course it wasn't just Tridents that carried this livery...
First Devon and Cornwall S529RWP S764RNE

  • Rather than try to explain the whole kit and caboodle, fbb will concentrate his efforts on one corridor upon which, for over 40 years Public Transport Experience
  • Blandford- and Pimperne-based Damory (Coaches) is rebranding (again) its local buses and the first vehicles in its new service bus incarnation are already turning up. Note the darker blue, new Damóry (sic) logo and new strapline, Dorset Bus Blog
  • Yesterday’s announcement regarding successes in the government’s fourth tranche of Green Bus Funding featured 31 electric buses. Some of these—we don’t yet know how many—will be of Chinese manufacture, from a company called BYD Omnibuses
  • Today, I'm going to focus on Boorley Green, near Botley in Hampshire. Boorley Green is a small place, with a pub, some fields, some houses and not a lot else Southern England
  • How very sensible to show a major traffic objective incorrectly. But the timetable pages were probably designed, as ever, by someone who has never been to Clydebank. Public Transport Experience
  • It’s history till 1990 followed the path you might expect. But since the early 1990s, Trent Barton’s been near enough ploughing its own furrow. Omnibuses

  1. It seems all the fleet is going into the generic First livery so that when the business is sold it can transfer the nicer and newest buses to the rest of the country I reckon.
