Brighton Tridents now here while still there

More Dennis Tridents from Brighton & Hove have now arrived at Milehouse awaiting refurbishment before being placed in service. The full batch will be registrations PK02RDU PK02RDV PK02RDY PK02RDZ PK02RFE PK02RFF PK02RFJ PK02RFL

The batch is due to fill fleet numbers 480 to 487 but I am not sure what order they are in. (480 RFF, 482 RDU 483 RDV)

There is still one to arrive in  Plymouth – PK02RFE which is still in Brighton having not made it out of the city.

  1. They're not using them without doing them up first? I thought there was a desperate need for more buses due to the service changes?

  2. When buying in second-hand buses, does Citybus have a policy of not having too many different types?

  3. PK02RFL is the first one into the body shop for re-panelling and repaint. All the others are parked in the Lower Yard. Dart 77 also being repaired following its accident when working on route 75. Last green Solo now in the paint shop. Finally, Dart 15 has now been moved into the raised depot - for spares stripping I assume.

  4. Does anyone know what is going into the spray shop after 223? I assume 77 will get a repaint once she is fixed

  6. 11 brand new Enviro 400s on order for the 50 route. I believe that Brighton Tridents are to replace some of the ex London double door deckers that are still around. Could Citybus be painting the B & H deckers to avoid confusion with Jacketts who still run a dart in B & H Livery. I noticed this afternoon (Sunday) a B & H Scania Irazar coach parked in Milehouse. Is this another addition to the Citycoach fleet?

    2. Why are so many large darts being used? Particularly the 11m SPDs? Seem to see more of the Solos sat in Milehouse than on the road lately. One in particular has been sat on the edge of 'death row' for well over 10 days now.
