I ment are they fitted eith fareboxes so can work Preston town routes or not, so would be working 'country' routes such as services to or from Chorley or on the Fylde.

The first two of five Mellor Strata bodies Mercedes Benz Sprinters (LM18 UWV/W) have arrived for tendered services in the Ribble Valley. One is currently being used for driver familiarisation and it is hoped that both will be out in service next week.

RE: Rotala - Prestonbus
With the announcement that Rotala is selling its Wessex Connect operation to Stagecoach, along with nine vehicles, Simon Dunn, from Rotala, told me via email, that no decision has been made yet on where the rest of the Wessex fleet will be transferred to. So, it may be that something could, and I stress could, be moved to either Preston Bus, or DBNW.

There are no guarantees though that all the ex Wessex stock not going to Stagecoach will remain in the Rotala PLC fleet.

Just as an aside, the nine vehicles moving to Stagecoach from Wessex are eight Enviro200s and a sole Optare Solo (how appropriate!).

Mercedes/Mellor Strata 21204 (LM18UMZ) was badly damaged on Wednesday - its first day in service - when a lorry reversed in to it in Longridge. It will shortly be going back to Mellor for repair.
