Sullivan Buses Happenings 2012
« on: January 02, 2012, 10:18:59 pm »
This is a new format of note pages, for general day-to-day sightings, run-of-the-mill daily observations, and even the more unusual strays spotted in daily operation.

Open up a separate thread for service changes, and major announcements (i.e. PI callings, new ownership, cessation of operations, that kind of thing!)

This thread shall continue throughout 2012, but Admins reserve the right to cut one and start again if there are more than 250 postings in one particular thread, or if there is an argument or serious off-topic problems etc.

Enjoy!

AE11-AE16 have all been delivered .

From my draft for PSVC news-sheet 865;

New Vehicles
Sullivan, Potters Bar   
   AE11   CJ 61 SUL   AD   Dt SFD51AR6BGY32655   AD   B231/01   B29D    1/12
   AE12   DS 61 SUL   AD   Dt SFD51AR6BGY32656   AD   B231/02   B29D    1/12
   AE13   KR 61 SUL   AD   Dt SFD51AR6BGY32657   AD   B231/03   B29D     1/12
   AE14   KS 61 SUL   AD   Dt SFD51AR6BGY32658   AD   B231/04   B29D     1/12
   AE15   TW 61 SUL   AD   Dt SFD51AR6BGY32659   AD   B231/05   B29D    1/12
   AE16   SB 61 SUL   AD   Dt SFD51AR6BGY32660   AD   B231/06   B29D    1/12

General
Sullivan, Potters Bar. AE11-16 are the previously alluded to AD Dt’s for TfL Service 298, which will have started by the time you read this. I am informed that these are 29 seaters with dual doors, and do not have an offside emergency exit, which would reduce their capacity to 28. In addition to the second door, this is accommodated by the “break glass” window panels.

Not often that non-London second hand buses are bought for TFL work! I presume these are the ones Ensignbus have up for sale.

What was the Shuttle for (to/from) - any idea? The only thing  it may have been would be the World Travel Trade Show (or similar title I forget) at Excel but I thought that was covered by Arriva ? or was it in case of someone being on strike?

i do not know what the shuttle is it is also on today but they have spare double deckers as JFS has got a inset day today so no need to put single deckers out on the 330.
