Steven Knight Media reports that three Optare Solo M850SLs 47243-5 GX55 DXM/O/P are due to arrive on transfer from Stagecoach South soon - they are currently being prepared for their move to Norfolk Green at Stagecoach South's Winchester depot.

Stagecoach 47243 GX55 DXM seen in Farnborough back in 2009, it is expected that the three new additions will recieve the new Stagecoach Norfolk Green livery prior to their arrival, photo courtesy of eastleighbusman on Flickr.

As a result of these arrivals older resident Norfolk Green Optare Solos 47881 X249 VWR and 47883/4 Y57/8 HBT are expected to be withdrawn, they are likely to see further use elsewhere in the Stagecoach Group, although details of this are still subject to confirmation.

In other news, Steven Knight Media is set to release a new version of their Norfolk Green fleet handbook in September - look out for more details nearer the time!
