konectbus (& anglianbus) Fleet Round-Up 10/06/14

It's been ages since our last konectbus update so if like us you have missed some of the various reports either on the konectbus website or other local blogs here is a catch up with the latest movements since the beginning of May within both the konectbus and anglianbus fleets...

All five of the recently acquired Wrightbus Eclipse Gemini bodied Volvo B7TL's 510-14 LB02 YWX/Y and LB02 YXA/E/F have now all arrived at konectbus following refurbishment at Hants & Dorset Trim, so far three 511/2/4 have entered service, the other two will follow soon.

As a result of the Gemini arrivals East Lancs Lolyne bodied Dennis Tridents 722/3/5 W822/3/5 NNJ have transferred across to anglianbus, similar 724 W824 NNJ is withdrawn.

Leyland National heritage bus 152 UFX 852S which has previously been used as a reserve vehicle as and when required has now been stood down from service and placed into storage - fear not though as Exclusive First Editions have announced that they are to produce a 1/72 scale model of this supurb vehicle - click here to find out more from the EFE blog!

Meanwhile over at anglianbus East Lancs Lolyne bodied Dennis Tridents 711/3 T811/3 RFG have been withdrawn as has Optare Solo 958 AO57 EXA.
