It does look good, but it did previously as well, so I'm in two minds. However, it's got to be right that it's now in Helms livery.

I wouldn't say they're sheds to be fair. There a good bus and as someone mentioned , much better than the Solos they had, however I do agree with you on the Smoky bit, specially the Ex-MTL demonstrator doesn't half give off some smoke! I think that could be easily sorted by a filter clean or new exhaust fitted to LEZ compliant As much as they won't see London

They are on the slow side though the B6s, very tatty on the inside too!

There is mention of another one too but no details of the reg of that one yet.

Oh Superman where are you now, when everything's gone wrong somehow, the men of steel, the men of power, are losing control by the hour.

AWW Only got painted as it had a minor bump and needed pannels replacing so Mr Cherry decided to get the bus painted up into fleet Livery. Looks very smart
