Our Bus News

New arrival here, Optare Solo SR YJ62FZV, has now had Our Bus fleet names applied but has yet to enter service. Affectionately known as Jasper, it is expected to see use on the newly won tendered 85 route between Claxton Green and Norwich Bus Station via Surlingham.

Yet another Optare Solo has been acquired and is expected soon. W441CWX is to arrive by low-loader and will donate its engine to CN05JYP. It will also be stripped for spare parts.

W441CWX was new to Crystals of Dartford and saw further use with Tellings - Golden Miller and Metrobus before passing to Classic Coaches of County Durham in June 2006. It was last taxed in March 2013.

My thanks to Sam Larke for the information and photo. The history of W441CWX was taken from the Metrobus Route and Fleet History website.
