Regal Busways problems ??
« on: March 16, 2015, 08:35:00 am »
With out wishing to start an unsubstantiated Rumour .

A TGM Harlow Bus has just past me on the out-Skirts of Bishop's Stortford carrying Route 322 .
This is of course the Route Number of the Essex County Council School Days  only Route betwixt Old Harlow and Newport or Saffron Walden ( can't remember which ) .

Was this TGM Bus just covering a breakdown , or some thing more ?

This mornings 322 was done in a Regal Busways Dart, can't remember registration. I saw it as I entered Saffron Walden County High School while driving the 446 :)

O K panic over , it must have been some kind of duty number stuck in the Windscreen then .

Unless there is a Route 332 and I misread it !

No, sounds like a duty card.

Arriva Harlow have got a severe driver shortage. They recently put some routes out to sub contract to another company.

I noted in Harlow earlier today that most Buses now have some kind of " Duty " number in the front windscreen .
