Saw the 40 Chester rail link, involved in a bump not far from the station at about 5.30-pm today think it was L1 SLT bus that had hit the car in front. Didnt look like a big bump, hope all ok.

Shame about 202, loved that bus if and when it turned up on the 358. Not bad once it got going, very rough sounding, uncomfy seats... but loved it! Former London Suburban bus (aka Liverbus), MTL London and Metroline, so quite close to home really being MTL etc!

Such a shame,

Luke.

Are any of the Dennis Arrows still 'alive' with them? I've heard that they've got some, but whether they're still going or not I don't know! :P

Yep they venture out sometimes, there was one on the 359 the other week because Mr Cherrys personal president decided not to work.. I see the aintree ones out often on hires though, so yes they still exist.

I had one on a school service a year or so back, the worst arrow ive ever been on!

the volvo b6s are in my opinion sheds. everytime i see them they are smoky, loud, rough and i feel sorry for the passengers.

I don't think it's been mentioned but the Enviro400 that came from Ensign has now been painted and looks pretty smart in my opinion!
