The 22 and 24 will be having a few problems today no doubt because the A540 is closed inbound from the junction with the M56/A494/A5117 near Saughall to the A5480 Countess Way. That is one massive diversion, outbound is not affected apparently.

841 has caught fire

RE: Avon Buses - MPTE1955 - 09/10/2012 09:42

Is 841 the same one that had an engine fire some months back.

Anyone know if the R*** RLY darts are meant to be leaving soon? Thought merseytravel dont allow buses to be older than 15 years old

Believe 841 is a write off, back end totally destroyed.

A greatly unfortunate incident regarding 841. The R-RLY Dart's should be around for a good while yet as they prove to be reliable workhorses. Even more so now the fleet strength is one less with 841.

That looks dreadful! I remember many rides on 841 on the 83(A) Isn't there a merseytravel rule regarding the age of busses? Ie not allowed to be over 15 years as the r reg must be nearly 15 years old now.

RE: Avon Buses - V671 DVU - 12/10/2012 15:10

The rule is vehicles can still be used whether they're 15, but the day they turn 16 they're not allowed. (I think that's it, I remember someone described the rule to Infamy a while back so would be happily proved wrong!)

That is a bit silly of you ask me, the R reg darts are in better Nic than many of the newer ones. As far as I'm concerned, if a bus can get me from a to b, and is in a half decent condition, then it should be running
