Interesting to see that Regal have gained even more Olympians, although they will likely be put on school routes :(. They have appeared on the 7 from Epping to Chelmsford before, so I might look for them then.

Also, its surprising to see TWH have sold both their Routemasters (which I think are Dartmaster conversions). They were popular for private hire. Only guess is they have become expensive to maintain?

Also surprising that SM Coaches have brought a Mercedes 709d. I was under the impression that the fleet was going lowfloor, with the older low floor darts being sold.

I'm looking forward to getting a ride on the Merc minibus. It seems these 90s minibuses are making a comeback in the Harlow area, with TWH recently getting that ex-Arriva Plaxton Beaver 2.
