Tamworth Revisited

Last weekend meant a return trip to Tamworth - our last trip there was in late April this year

On the Saturday, whilst the others were enjoying the market and the shops, I made my way to the bus terminus at Victoria Road

On arrival I was surprised to see many new Mercedes Benz Citaros in service with Arriva Midlands
Apparently Tamworth has received seventeen of the twenty buses following their use at the London Olympics

The buses have fleetnumbers 3003-19 and have corresponding registrations BJ12YPO/P/RT-Z, BD12DHX-Z and BD12DJE/F

The only decker noted in the short period of observations was Wright Eclipse bodied Volvo B9TL 4202 FJ08LVN on the 110 to Birmingham

The Citaros are believed to have displaced the numerous Volvo B6BLEs;  with only one being noted and that was 2616 V216KDA at the Corporation Street Terminus

No other operator's vehicles were seen
