However, given the exceedingly hostile attitude of the Media and public towards the drastically reduced NoX and PM10 emissions from Hybrids and Euro6s, TFGM/C probably feel cleaning up buses is a complete waste of taxpayers' money.

The 544 was only a Hybrid contract way back in Maytree days with YJ11ELU since then its only been a general bus contract.

LK07ELJ LK07BDU were delivered to the depot yesterday. Since Bus And Coach World is fully booked, they both can't go in for a paint for a while yet.. So they'll be staying in London Red for the time being.

Remember me saying P993 AFV was going to be scrapped, and was going to be filmed for a documentary? Well the show starts on the 22nd August on Quest at 9PM. It will document the process of scrapping the bus, as well as scrapping crushing other things as well, And they kept the UK Coachways vinyls on. The bus which is being scrapped is a Dennis Dart East Lancs Spryte

RE: Vision (Formally UK Coachways)
Today was the first time LK07ELJ went out in service, and it got a lot of attention from enthusiasts. Next week, both ELJ and BDU will be out together
