    There cant be many buses running in the original Barbie livery. The only one I've seen lately is a Volvo B7 or B9 Gemini that came from First Edinburgh.

    I don't think Dumbarton got the memo, I came across 5 of theirs in the 10 minutes it took to drive through the town this morning.

    I’m confused by people saying they’re withdrawn/on reserve when a number of them still see everyday service. There’s still a Y plate floating around on the 46 and some examples still found on the 255/263 and on Dumbarton services.

    Good timing, this week's Coach and Bus Week says that they will be "brought into service in October" (there is a feature mostly about the Airport 500s).

    No as the E200MMC replacement was the E400City's, these are replacing older vehicles such as the B10s and B7L's.

    Correct - the cascade pattern is this AFAIK...

    1. New e400 into First Glasgow releases Volvo B7TL/Wright Gemini to First Cymru (for Unibus service) replacing Volvo B7RLE/Wright Eclipse to First Glasgow to displace Volvo B10BLE/Wright Renown or Volvo B7L/Wright Eclipse for disposal
    2. New e400City into First Glasgow releases e200mmc to First Cymru - apparently for a new Airport service (?)

    As I mentioned above, the B7RLEs from Cymru are swapped for B7TL/Geminis as the Unibus services in Swansea now need deckers. Thought it was supposed to be 10 heading to Wales but AFAIK, only 66718, 66944, 66945, 66953, 66958 confirmed heading the other way?
