The first Enviro taken care of

Plymouth Citybus have not wasted any time getting their ex London E400s through the paint shop with the first one LX06EZT now in full swoops with its new fleet number 466 LX06EZT

  1. I don't think that's been painted. I think it's had livery applied to the existing red body. No point painting it really.

    1. It quite clearly has been fully repainted to the same high standard as all of their full repaints.

  2. Looking smart. I guess the buses are being numbered the same order as the E numbers were,not in register plate order, putting this one somewhere in the middle. Otherwise this one would be last. Counting back and forward I look like they are 460 onwards which stops before 480 which is still in service.
    Does snyoan know why Citybus don't have a batch in the 600s? The gas buses were put in the 700 and the cutrcur Environs are 500s and this new batch squeezed in between other 400s - although all the other 400s are second hand

  4. They look so much smarter than I thought they would. Am hearing a lot about the Flash buses being rebranded to Swoops, any truth in that?

    1. Some Yellow Flash are spare from 50/51A being stopped. Some are being used on Callywith College
      Routes so it makes sense to go into red swoops. I believe 521 is already in the paint shop. I believe you

  5. Yes, definitely repainted. It's a brighter shade of red than London red and clearly has been through the bus wash thousands of times because it's shiny.

  6. Just come out of the paintshop which is why it’s shiny, nothing to do with the bus wash.

  7. 571 has been swooped but left in London red. It doesn't look very good.
