Indeed, as already being discussed on this thread http://angliaandthamesvalleybusforum.com/index.php?topic=5795.msg53086;topicseen#new - please use that thread for any further discussion relating to these vehicles :)

London Heritage Travel was the Routemaster operation that had an address in Littleport although the buses were kept in Essex somewhere,  I looked them up recently ans the address appeared to have moved to Thurrock - this was before the purchase by Ensign.

Enviro’s EU08FHB / DK57SPZ / MX07OZD : First Group.

Presumably these are bound for Yarmouth / Lowestoft like the rest of the E200s?

It appears that SM have sold 2 of their 3 Enviro200s now. FHB with First Eastern Counties, and now FHD to Bournemouth. I find this surprising as they have older buses, and they seem to have replaced them with older ex-London ALX200s. Maybe they got rid of them in order to get bigger buses.

Also, Dart X509WRG going to Hedingham (which is an ex-Go North East vehicle) briefly was on hire to Regent Coaches of Whitstable, as they needed extra vehicles due to Olympic commitments.

Quoted on UKBFN as being at Worchester currently. Whether this will change though?

Many independents are struggling with leasing payments and are chopping in newer leased or hire purchase buses for older purchased buses, could be the case here? Just a thought.

Does anyone know any more info about Dart EU06EDG going to TWH?

It doesn't seem to appear on a Google search, so I presume its been spelt wrong or its recently been re-registered.

Post on the essex group claims it was sent back to Ensign with engine problems, and has since been sold to Edwards.

Sullivan's website still lists it on the fleetlist, so who knows!

Seems the Trident in question that went to Edwards was LY02OAS. :)

R453 MSL - remember the day that entered service... and the driver didn't know how to restart it after turning off the engine at Kinross town hall. Citylink control brought out Midland (Bannockburn) to rescue us... but since then, the bus never missed a beat. One of the R-MSL's did run into trouble in Perth years back (almost midnight) and was rescued by an Optare MetroRider from Dundee depot, but otherwise faultless vehicles.
