Norfolk Green Fleet Update 14/12/14

Norfolk Green, part of the Stagecoach Group - Fleet Update 14/12/14...

Just one notable update to include in this brief edition which is the interesting news that Optare Versa V1100 25269 MX09 HJJ has left the fleet. It has been transferred to Stagecoach West where it is currently at Gloucester depot being repainted into the corporate Stagecoach livery before use there, the reason for its transfer is due to it being mechanically 'non standard' in the Norfolk Green fleet having a MAN engine fitted, all of the other Optare single deckers in the fleet - Solos/Tempos/Versas are fitted with Mercedes engines (except Solo 47895 MX55 BXO which is Cummins powered)

Other news comes from Steven Knight Media who reports that one of the Alexander ALX400 bodied Dennis Tridents originally expected to join the Norfolk Green fleet 17744 LY52 ZFC has instead been allocated to Stagecoach Cumbria & North Lancashire which leaves Norfolk Green with 17741/2/3 and 17785/6/7.
