First Kernow

Although this looks like a lot of changes, in reality nothing much has changed at all. Most of these seem to be administrative changes more than anything else, probably catching up after the recent sudden demise of Western Greyhound which radically altered planned changes already registered changes by First.

Route 24 Fowey - St Austell – Mevagissey

VOSA Notice back on 17th April:

  • PH0004983/504 - FIRST DEVON & CORNWALL LTD, THE RIDE, CHELSON MEADOW, PLYMOUTH, PL9 7JT Variation Accepted by SN: Operating between Fowey and Mevagissey given service number 24 effective from 19-Apr-2015. To amend Timetable.

Seems to have been administrative as no timetable change appears to have been made on this date.

Route 30 St Austell Penrice

  • PH0004983/515 - FIRST DEVON & CORNWALL LTD, THE RIDE, CHELSON MEADOW, PLYMOUTH, PL9 7JT Variation Accepted by SN: Operating between St Austell Bus Station and Penrice given service number 30 effective from 01-Apr-2015. To amend Route.

This route change appeared on VOSA on the 22nd April but no obvious route change noted so maybe more tidying up!

Route 86 Shortlanesend – Tregony

Another bit of tidying up. Back in February we had this registration.

  • PH0004983/510 - FIRST DEVON & CORNWALL LTD, THE RIDE, CHELSON MEADOW, PLYMOUTH, PL9 7JT Registration Accepted Starting Point: Shortlanesend Finish Point: Tregony Via: Truro, Probus Service Number: 86 Service Type: Normal Stopping Effective Date: 20-APR-2015 Other Details: Monday to Friday except public holidays.

However, this route never actually happened as it was superseded by events when Western Greyhound went under. Hence we have just had this cancellation:

  • PH0004983/510 - FIRST DEVON & CORNWALL LTD, THE RIDE, CHELSON MEADOW, PLYMOUTH, PL9 7JT Cancellation Accepted by SN: Operating between Shortlanesend and Tregony given service number 86 effective from 19-Apr-2015.

Route 87 Newquay – Truro

  • PH0004983/501 - FIRST DEVON & CORNWALL LTD, THE RIDE, CHELSON MEADOW, PLYMOUTH, PL9 7JT Variation Accepted by SN: Operating between Newquay Manor Road and Truro Bus Station given service number 87 effective from 19-Apr-2015. To amend Timetable.

Looks like administrative tidy up as there was a change registered from the 19th before WG went under. No timetable change from the 19th

Route 90/91/92/94 Truro - Newquay

  • PH0004983/498 - FIRST DEVON & CORNWALL LTD, THE RIDE, CHELSON MEADOW, PLYMOUTH, PL9 7JT Variation Accepted by SN: Operating between Truro Bus Station and Newquay, Bus Station given service number 90/91/92/94 effective from 19-Apr-2015. To amend Timetable.

Looks like administrative tidy up as there was a change registered from the 19th before WG went under. No timetable change from the 19th

Route 525: Polmear  St Blazey  St Austell

  • PH0004983/514 - FIRST DEVON & CORNWALL LTD, THE RIDE, CHELSON MEADOW, PLYMOUTH, PL9 7JT Variation Accepted by SN: Operating between Polmear Parc and St Austell Bus Station given service number 525 effective from 01-Apr-2015. To amend Route.

This route change appeared on VOSA on the 22nd April but no obvious route change noted so maybe more tidying up!

Route 101 St Austell Station - Eden – Luxulyan

  • PH0004983/360 - FIRST DEVON & CORNWALL LTD, THE RIDE, CHELSON MEADOW, PLYMOUTH, PL9 7JT Variation Accepted by SN: Operating between St Austell Bus Station and Eden Project given service number 101 effective from 17-May-2015. To amend Timetable.

A proper change noted on VOSA a few days ago.

First Kernow 101

Route 855 Wadebridge – Royal Cornwall Showground

VOSA Notice

Fleet News

Four Solos from  Somerset have arrived in Cornwall 50278; 53012 53013; 53014. Dennis Dart 42842 is another from Somerset noted at Truro. Green Solos 53503 and 53504 are back at Penzance following their brief sojourn to BoS. First Manchester Volvo B10BLEs 60379, 62214 & 66194/5 have been withdrawn and transferred to First Devon & Cornwall (not sure where these will end up yet though). At least two Tridents are on loan from Ensign LK03CFZ ex Metroline TP423 and LK03GKD Metroline TP465.

Looking ahead it seems that there are more Dennis Tridents coming from within the group (the three imminent from Olive Grove in Sheffield are 33066-8) which will be released as this years new buses enter service around the country. Certainly we are now seeing a batch of new Streetlites with a few group operations this week. Its looking like the days of the Olympian are likely to be numbered.
