    That's who, thanks for that :) I'm on the fence about which one looks better, both are pretty appalling.

    I think that Arrivia North East 2817 (optare solo) might not be moving to Blyth and a different solo mignt not be due to the problem the 61 + 62 will bus bus less

    Hi Some pics from Hereford showing the increase in Optare Solo's both short & long wheelbase, since First Bus pulled out & Yeoman's Canyon Travel took over.
    As they had to acquire more buses interior seat covering varies 20170706_104955.jpg 20170706_105004.jpg 20170706_105127.jpg 20170706_121605.jpg 20170706_121618.jpg 20170706_121854.jpg 20170706_122604.jpg 20170706_122955.jpg .

    NCT recently had a batch of brand new N280UD CNG busses. They are already having issues

    Over the last 2 days, Hong Kong experienced an extremely heavy storm, resulting extremely heavy rain.
    When I mean "extremely heavy rain", I mean it's heavy enough to cause flooding in some areas.
    Still don't believe me? Photos speak better than words lol
    This is how it looks like when it's sunny: :D

    The South Yorkshire R reg B10BLE Wright Renowns still live on in regular, everday service and are some of the oldest Buses left in Regular service with First Bus!! Here is 60622 (R789 WKW) on the 1/7/17 on the 70 route. My favourite B10BLE out of the R reg ones purely as it is still a Beast and always has been since new to Sheffield Mainline in 1997!!

    The Optare Tempos displace the Solos to Blyth for the 1, I'm sure theres enough midibuses to cover the 61/62 which only needs one bus.

    I'm also hearing that 7527/8 are moving to Arriva Durham County from Northumbria, and that Newcastle are getting two of the higher capacity Sapphire Pulsars from Durham.

    Plans have changed every other week, its getting quite confusing :tearsofjoy:
