On First Kernow Facebook they say 32636/37/38/87 37012/13 are now awaiting collection from LH.
I think that might be a little premature as apparently 32636 is on 18 and 32687 on 73 today according to the tracker.

The newly painted 36801-805 and 36821 are back off to Bristol? Is this confirmed or rumour

Edit - do you mean the 37757-767 fleet?
I have previously read 37757-67 are likely to end up on the 24.
Although showing blank on the tracker 37758 was definitely on X39 today.

Would be a good replacement with that massive tree deflector it’s got on it
Yes, and the green 6/7 front branding will all though a slightly different shade of green, fit in with Badgerline in Weston, though not so much with the Coaster branding.

Although, it may have just been borrowed by Weston to cover a breakdown and not yet returned to Lawrence Hill.

Still no sign of the 6/7 getting there gas buses, already two weeks over due !
Definitely not overdue! Was never intended to send out all 44 red ones at once as it would've been impossible to get them ready in time and all in the depot at the same time.

As more arrive, I think the 6/7 will be the next of the Citylines East services to receive them, followed by the 73.

Im 99% sure they must have all been registered already. One has arrived in Bristol now.
There is one at Lawrence Hill which was being branded. There are some more at Scania in Avonmouth.

I think they will be in standard livery some how.
I doubt it will be in standard livery - whatever standard livery actually is now. Nothing has been delivered in urban livery in years, or indeed nothing has been painted into it.
For the 73 I'm picturing a blue version of the city lines style

Hi all, I was wondering if the current 14 plate enviros at wells are on loan or are permanent because it does say on Swhites webpage that they are going to eventually be moved to wells but no exact date, I believe TSO, CTV and TSX and possibly TSU is in use at wells at the moment.

Two of the recent gas buses are in urban.

I've been told the 73 will be like the 40's but in the original BT&CC green.
With gold fleetnames, cream band and raised fleetplates......plus open rear platform.

However the original was blue and white of course!
