New Buses for the X1?

The X1 blog reports rumours that the new buses are expect for the X1 Peterborough to Lowestoft via Great Yarmouth service

Gerard reports the vehicles are currently parked in a location north of London labelled for Olympic use but with X1 branding. The livery is different from the current one and it is believed the lower bodysides are burgundy. The seventeen buses (not 22 as hoped for) have leather seats and and are rumoured to have more powerful engines than the current fleet.

We will just have to wait and see what happens after everything settles down following the Olympics.

News Update:

A reliable source has subsequently advised that here are NO replacement X1 vehicles in the Olympic fleet, although discussion is shortly to take place on replacing the Gemini's in next year's vehicle allocation.
