Earlier this week, we reported on the arrival of 721 W821NNJ to anglianbus in exchange for 304 MX58KYV. We mentioned in the post about the possibility of it being repainted by the introduction of the new network which commences on the second of September. I can now report that 721 will not be receiving the new paintjob in the near future and neither will 217 W217PRB or 218 W218PRB
Steven Royal has sent me a photograph of 218, just a few days after she was spotted in service with no vinyls. She now carries anglian's new logo, in inverted colours on top of her konect livery. 217 and 721 are set to face the same destiny as repainting buses costs a lot of money and takes time.
Check back here in the future for further updates on the repainting front as it happens.
