RE: Finches of Wigan
This operator has taken on all the Winstanley College and St John Rigby College work previously operated by Diamond and a number of additional vehicles have been purchased one of which is W138EON a one time London United Volvo B7TL/Alexander ALX400 and more recently with Catch 22 but now in a plain white livery. At least a further Plaxton President has been noted in London Red Livery. Does anybody know what the vehicles purchased are?

Many thanks in anticipation.
