    Foreigner! Stagecoach Lincoln 19302 spotted operating the W5. Hopefully, more foreigners to come.

    Taken with my phone From the rear of an Eclipse. Never knew that the West Midlands became apart of Wessex! A Plaxton Centro that has just finished on its morning jaunt on the 3 to Kidderminster.

    Oh my! Bit of vandalism on 18029. Or is this a company thing? Regardless, it needs to go - these will probably be out by 2018, anyway.

    After a tiring trip to Alton Towers today, which involved my phone dying on the way back for the first time ever, I saw this bus in the coach park - ex-Dublin Bus Volvo Olympian RV581 (V351 DJU, former 99-D-581) belonging to Harpurs Coaches. When passing, the driver was just getting up from being asleep!

    Been out recording audio today. Caught a N230UD running late after the N94UD broke down.
    Nottingham City Transport Sky Blue 45 Scania N230UD Omnidekka with k/d enabled.


    Omnidekka ZF boxes are usually silent, this one however wants to be noticed. Possibly running hot, driver was giving it some from 3:40 onwards and 4:28 onwards.

    Now this is a different kind of bus spotting!

    Was peeping around Street View captured around about the Olympics, and I checked out the old Stagecoach Upton Park depot to find...this!

    Is it possible for anyone to identify any of these three vehicles? Or is there not enough detail?

    Considering the top vehicle says St Helens on the side I would presume it to be a Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire Enviro200.
    As for the bottom vehicles, one says Inverurie Connect so I would assume one of the Scotland subsidiaries whereas the lurking bus behind is in Corporate livery. Both are Enviro200s tho

    Not 100% percent but the reg on that Stagecoach bus in the first picture is PO11 BDF. This means it is Stagecoach Merseyside & South Lancashire 27722, an Enviro300.
