Dart Demise Draws Nearer

If you are a fan of the Plymouth Citybus Dennis Dart then make the most of them now as their days are drastically numbered with many of the remaining buses now in reserve and unlikely to see service again. Their may a few left in service into November but they are all due out of service.

Other fleet news is that the last of the Go South Coast loan fleet has been returned to GSC so no more more…

With all the new buses entering service (just a few left to arrive) there is clearly going to be clear out. The recently acquired Scania / Wright single deckers are also due to go, although the East Lancs buses may stay a while?

As always plans can and do change…

My online fleet list has just been updated for the first time in a month or so.
