    A post on Facebook this morning stated that “47 service at 09.35 from Truro has been involved in a accident and is not running at this time”. Presumably 56002 took over?

    Not sure, however 56002 arrived at Camborne from the Truro direction at around 1110 and then departed towards Troon. It displayed service 47 on a bit of paper.

    Another Uni bus MMC I saw parked up at Penzance bus station at quarter to 2 and was still there at half 5 on Sunday, could of been on Helston-Penzance U4 services or on standby duties

    I saw Uni MMC 33472 on the 09:27 T1 service from Penzance to Truro at Truro rail station, so probably was the same one, was is quite funny as there is a Tinner bus was on U1-U4 duties this week

    That was the bus and working I saw!

    Solo 53827 worked the 1305 "87" Truro to Newquay and 32048 the 1134 "27" Bodmin to Truro. It then went off empty to the depot.

    Interesting movements on the U1 route this morning due to a broken down lorry near Treluswell roundabout, all Truro bound U1 services diverted via Perranwell. The first affected service was the 09:40 U1 service from Falmouth Moor to Truro worked by the usual blue MMC, which was transferred terminated at Playing Place and then worked the heavily delayed 10:35 U1 service from Truro to Falmouth which again started from Playing Place. All passengers transferred to Dennis Trident 33112 which worked empty from Truro depot and operated the Playing Place to Truro bus station Section of the U1 route and then worked the 11:05 U1 service from Truro bus station to Falmouth Moor

    University E400MMC 33474 worked the 0735 "T1" Truro to Penzance and back as far as Camborne where it was taken off and replaced by Volvo B7TL 30872.
    Dart 42874 was on the 0817 "T2" St Ives to Truro and 1020 "T2" Truro to St Ives.
    32051 is broke at Camborne. It needed a bit of persuasion to be parked up!

    Long term out of use Trident 32851 was removed from Camborne this afternoon, 32878 will probably follow soon. E400 MMC 33456 was taken off a Truro bound T2 service at Camborne and replaced by Volvo B7TL 30877.

    Good to see those Penzance Darts still helping out on the Premiere routes! 42874 is certainly getting around this week as I saw it doing U4s between Penzance & Penryn Campus on Saturday, just goes to show how valuable the Dart is here in Cornwall!

    Speaking of Darts, the GWR-liveried one was on the A17 this afternoon, the first time I've seen it in PZ for a while. Enough Tinners to see them working the 18C and 241.:smile:
