Norfolk Green Solos on loan at Western Greyhound

As we previously mentioned in our recent fleet update, Norfolk Green have sent three of their Optare Solos on loan to Western Greyhound to help out following the devestating fire which destroyed 34 of the popular Cornish independent's vehicles last week.

The three Solos - 601 Y54 HBT, 604 Y58 HBT and 610 YG52 DHL arrived in Cornwall on Friday, below are some photographs of the buses at Western Greyhound's depot.

Other operators loaning Western Greyhound buses so far include Anglianbus, Blackpool Transport, Carmel Coaches, Stagecoach and Summercourt Travel.

Its great to see Western Greyhound managing to get back on their feet, we're sure our readers will join us in wishing them all the best for the future.

Many thanks to Mark Howarth at Western Greyhound for sending the photographs included in this post
