RE: First Manchester
First were living up to their normal standards tonight on the 83.

A bus arrived into Manchester with 83 Sholver displayed and stopped just short of stand A on Oldham Street to drop passengers up. Then once all passengers had got off, instead of driving down to the stand to pick up passengers, he decided to just to drive off, leaving everybody to pile on the next bus (a 180 double decker). Left about two minutes late, so obviously decided to set off empty to run on time rather than pick up passengers and run late.

37288 and 289 are both repainted - I wonder if they will receive branding similar to ours!

do not think so as they are used on local Huddersfield services as well as I saw 88 in Holmfirth last year


talking of branding they need to get them into order ie 180/184 37381 to 88 etc

Does anyone know what's going on with 31938? I've not seen it in service in Wigan for ages now, but it's still at the depot apparently! :P

37288/89 are predominately used for the 184 service but sometimes it can end up on other services. I have heard that it was once used on the Mecca Bingo service one Sunday or Bank Holiday Monday.

The numbering for the branded services are a bit jumbled up now. Only the old 180/184 branded buses seem to have stayed grouped together (37382 in new livery but no branding yet). From recollection, 37441 and 37443 are branded for the 58/59, while 37442 is branded for the 180/184.

Youve got a better chance of seeing the 2 huddersfield Volvo B9TLs on The Uni Runs,Mega Bingo,Staff Bus 200 Or 307 Than on 184!

May seem that way occasionally, but their allocation generally is quite well done. Can't imagine they are that easily distinguished by staff who wouldn't look twice usually, and for them to be on the 184 about 90% of the time, I think they do an alright job Smile
