Konectbus Fleet Update 03/11/11 ~ mercedes bends!

The first of Konectbus' five Mercedes Benz Citaro G articulated buses to be refurbished at Go Ahead's Hants & Dorset Trim workshop in Eastleigh has returned to Dereham.

800 BD57WDA looks fantastic in it new livery and carries a snappy "mercedes bends" slogan on its rear as shown in the photographs below which were kindly supplied by Julian Patterson.

Many thanks to Julian Patterson for the info and photos
