BorderBus Fleet Update

We can exclusively reveal that Beccles based BorderBus has collected a further two former Yellow Buses of Bournemouth vehicles.

They are Alexander Dennis Enviro200's YX12 AKP (2032) and YX12 AEY (2028) which were both previously with First London. The twosome were picked up yesterday and are to receive internal and external overhauls prior to entering service.

Three double deckers in the fleet are currently VOR with Scania Omnicity's 207 BB53 BUS, 208 BB58 BUS and 208 BB58 BUS all requiring attention to their engines.

ADL Enviro200 103 BB09 BUS has been withdrawn after being recently involved in an RTC at Kelsale, near Saxmundham. It is to be scrapped as it is deemed to be uneconomic to repair, although the number plate is being retained.

Plaxton President 202 X643 LLX has surprisingly passed its MOT and is being prepared for active service as a standby vehicle.

Not so lucky is the previous 207, LK51 XGH, which has changed hands numerous times since the operator originally sold it for use as a bird hide! It is currently being scrapped at a site in Ilketshall St Andrew, near Bungay.

My appreciation goes to Andrew Pursey at BorderBus for his help with preparing this post and providing the photos of the newcomers. My thanks also to Steve Blackburn for the additional information.
