It's interesting to see everyone getting rid of their Spectras for a week or two...

Three different Spectras from three different companies in three different liveries to be seen in BSE today.

Also seen, brand new (understand only delivered today) Stephensons E200 YX11CTU on the 16. Understand two were delivered, the other registered YX11CTO



could their be an order for some double deckersS?

i think some of the uno drivers would have preferred if they had sent the tridents instead as they are said to have cramped cabs plus also i would have thought the tridents would have gone as they are the least used of the double deckers i would think due to it being true about the cabs !

oh and is UNO EAST LANCS bodied DAF 202 (YJ53 VBO) there as well ?

I believe L564YCU is, or was, dealer stock with Stephensons.

I understand this is one of four acquired. Two currently away being reapinted and this and FGG being used still in red. These were recently replaced by new E200s at Romford (NS) on route 296.

Ex-Burtons Dart N541TPF was working the 312 on 2 July.
