Brighton Visit

As you will have seen from the previous post, I am currently in the south of England and it would be rude not to take in bus activity in Brighton! So a visit beckoned on Tuesday.

The above picture shows intense activity on North Street with buses from the Brighton & Hove fleet dominating the street scene.

Continuing along North Street, one of Compass Bus new Dennis Enviro200MMCs was observed on the tendered 37 route to Meadow View in the shape of YX68UJY.

Proceeding to Steine Gardens I found Go Ahead London Alexander Dennis Enviro400 E12 SN06BNX. It was laying over after working the Monday to Friday shoppers 773 service from Banstead which would return during the afternoon.

The Brighton & Hove/Metrobus driver trainers were out in force with ex Metrobus Scania OmniCity YN05HCE taking a break at Steine Gardens and ex Southern Vectis President bodied Volvo B7TL PL51LDK passing through Churchill Square.

Around midday a French registered Mercedes Benz Tourismo turned up with an isi lines service. Only one person alighted from the Courriers Automobiles Picards owned CT-231-BC

Meanwhile at the Pool Valley National Express bus station Edwards Coaches Caetano Levante bodied Volvo B9R FJ11GKY was seen on a London bound service

Returning to Steine Gardens my attention was drawn to the presence of two of The Big Lemon’s Optare Solo M9250SR waiting time. They were YJ68FZL and YJ68FZN both with destinations set for the 56 to Knoll Estate. They were only just delivered in February.
