Stagecoach MCSL - Chester & Wirral Depots
RE: First Chester & Wirral
The problem with First on the Wirral is that the depot itself is a bit cramped for space when most of the vehicles are on site , the amount of vehicles they have allocated now is about the maximum that the site can safely accomodate .

Its near the point that to operate any different services would require a service to be withdrawn to provide the vehicles .

Its not ambition they need the depot manager at Rock Ferry would probably like a depot with more space . In a way Chester depot suffers the same problem not enough space .

They shouldnt have sold half the yard for housing then! Or if they where planning to sell half the yard have a plan b for an alternative site.

Seems like the Liverpool 1's for First will be operated by both Rockferry and Chester, that's according to a driver in Chester.

There is a specific monday - friday 38 duty which is always run by deckers whether the school are in or not, 1100 from New Ferry, 1200 from West Kirby, 1300 from New Ferry and 1400 from West Kirby before returning to Rock Ferry depot at around 1505. The driver then comes off and the bus usually gets taken out onto a school service, not sure if its the same board though.

As for deckers on the 38 on a Saturday.. theres always at least one on 38s on a saturday, despite all the boards saying Vehicle type 'SCANIA'..

This may be of some use to those looking to ride on the olympians, as they are surley nearing the end of their life now..

It would prob be First Chester & Wirral

It would have to be. It would really upset passengers round here if the buses had manc branding!

I think it would have been better had they been left on first Pottieres lincence as are 60032-42

It's because its now part of First Manchester division hence First Manchester branding, First Potteries has been dissolved with Stoke moving to the First Midlands division.
