The day started off with a seemingly unannounced closure of most of the bus station, with all buses departing from the bays down the side. (see above). Despite the fences, tape and signs everywhere, many passengers were found wondering through the bus station as if nothing was happening. And as if to top it all off, this Konectbus managed to temporarily break down just as it was turning into the bus station, preventing Simonds' 118 service from entering. (See right)
Not much else of interest was present, apart from the burnt out Optare Excel, X228 WRA which still sits forlorn at the back of the yard, now missing its windscreen. This interesting poster to the right was noted on board one of the ALX400s. We thought it was rather entertaining to say the least!
In other news, it turns out that the decision to withdraw 66168 has been terminated, and it will be receiving a brand new engine, ready to enter service again whilst we await the arrival of the refreshed WV02 EUP.
