Not quite all out…

I have a soft spot for the ealiest batch of low floor Darts with Plymouth Citybus. I have always prefered the cleaner look of the front end of the Pointer bodywork. However all good things come to an end eventually and this batch of buses is indeed almost at end with only one left in service: 10 N110UTT. Of course now I have put it on the blog you can almost guarantee that at least one of the others will be seen in service this week...

Plymouth Citybus 010 N110UTT

Banksmen Busy at the Bus Station The eastern side of Lancaster's Bus Station re-opened today as work by United Utilities to improve the city's sewerage system moved from Phase 1, which involved building a storm water tank underneath half the bus station, to Phase 2, which involves closing the Station's main access road
Stockwell Bus Garage Open Day This is the Stockwell Bus Garage, and it is an exceptional building. At the time of its construction, it had Europe’s widest concrete spans, and is today recognised as one of the most important modernist buildings in London. Rarely seen by outsiders, the bus garage will be open to the rest of us from 10am to 5pm on Saturday 21st June.
Dewsbury Running Day Despite no longer having immediate family in the north west I still get the chance to return home occasionally and back in March I took a trip over the Pennines for another very welcome early season event, the Dewsbury Bus Museum's Running Day.

Is it Nuts? Or Necessary? [1] Eric confessed that he couldn't "make head nor tail" of the pages. "What are all these arrows and little triangles for?" he asked, his query embroidered with the occasional "expletive deleted". In an attempt to placate her rapidly rage-reddening spouse, Mavis suggested, "lets go to Lamrona and take it from there; at least we are making a start."


  1. Has R113OFJ been withdrawn or is that a minor error on the fleet list ?

    1. It has been reported as such, but as ever with Citybus buses do have a habbit of reappearing in service! If anyone sees it out and about I will update the list

    2. It would appear to be withdrawn - if you fill in this form with R113OFJ and DENNIS it comes up as SORN, same for the others mentioned as withdrawn. All the other R regs are all still going.


  2. Most of the withdrawn Darts (including 13) are parked in the Lower Yard. 1 & 4 are in the Raised Depot.
