Citaros Swooped

I finally managed to get back out with my camera this last weekend to make start catching up on current bus scene. To start off we have a few more Citaros in the full swoop livery:

Plymouth Citybus 080 WJ55HLG Plymouth Citybus 081 WJ55HLH Plymouth Citybus 082 WJ55HLK Plymouth Citybus 084 WJ55HLN Plymouth Citybus 086 WJ55HLP

Of this first batch of Mercedes 85 is in the dark red fronted livery whilst 87 remains in the previous red white and black livery.

More photos from the weekend to follow over the next few days…

PT Recommends

  • Reading Buses are in the process of introducing a batch of 17* Scania KUB270/Enviro300 hybrids. These are some of the first to be introduced into the country, and feature extra-large covers to make the gas tanks more aesthetically pleasing Southern England
  • As anyone who has used the area over the past few years will have known, much of the area around Tottenham Court Road tube station is a huge Crossrail construction site. Two massive tickets halls are being constructed at the Western and Eastern ends of the new station platforms. Ian Visits
  • So a wise and knowledgeable passenger will either (a) avoid the facility altogether or (b) treat any answers it gives with total suspicion. An unfortunate visitor, however, stands a good chance of being misled or mystified. What a splendid system! Public Transport Experience
  • Falmouth Outstation on Tregoniggie Industrial Estate, July 2005 Southern England
  • First’s new south west managing directors take up their posts officially today. That was quick. First’s supertanker can turn swiftly, after all. . Omnibuses
