Western super Mare Visit

Following the previous report on Crosville Motor Services workings in Weston super Mare, I also have put a post together of other operators' workings observed in the resort.

First Somerset & Avon ADL Enviro400 33829 SN63MYM awaits departure on Marine Parade for X2 Bristol service
First West of England appear to provide most of the bus services in Weston with them using a variety of liveries. They included an Excel branding for the X2 to Bristol and an Airport Flyer livery for the service to Bristol Airport.

Another operator of interest was Citistar which provides a small number of services in the Weston super Mare area. The photo shows it operating local bus service 4 to Hutton on a contract gained from North Somerset Council in September 2017.

Citistar Optare Solo MX54KXZ was new to Henderson of Hamilton in February 2005
On one of the days we walked back to my niece's house, we came across this red liveried Olympian parked next to St Paul's Church on Wallscote Road. The former First Bristol Northern Counties Palatine bodied Volvo was acquired in 2014. Although new to Bristol in December 1997, R663NHY also saw use with First Cymru. It was used on outings but with its 'carer' at St Paul's moving on it is now static and mainly used by the youth club.

An interesting time observing activity with photos taken over the two days appearing shortly on our Flickr site.
