Ipswich Buses Increasing The Tempo

It has been some time since we have looked at developments at Ipswich Buses and the following has been provided by Jordan Watson.

As most of you will know Ipswich Buses has recently acquired thirteen Optare Tempo SR single deckers which were new to Trent Barton in 2012. The new additions are as follows:-

The new arrivals will mean the disposal of the now elderly Dennis Darts with the exception of 85 PJ53OLE which which will be converted to a driver trainer.

This means the end of the road for Myllenium Darts 84, 87 and 88 (PJ03OLC/H/K) along with ex Lothian Super Pointer Darts 134-136 (SN53AVG/K/M) and Scania CN94UB OmniCity's 70-5 (YN56NVB-G). They have been advertised online as being available for sale along with Leyland Atlantean Open Topper 9 MRT9P, which is locally rumoured to have a buyer already!
