I have searched to see if anyone else has mentioned this, to no avail.

On my parambulations past Ilford Cow Sheds today I spied, quietly resting on Plessey Road a 321 in a very attractive livery. Unfortunately as I was driving a less attractive version I was unable to get a pic of it but it was white body, black squares with round corners around the windows, black or dark blue stripe along lower fifth of body topped with a red line. Doors were powder blue.

Does anyone have any more information about it? Is it to be the unit to announce the new franchise?

Puzzled of Southend Vic!

Not my Picture but I found this link on another thread. Would this be it?

If so it returned from Doncaster on 5/6/16 having been collected by 321360.

There is a video of it leaving Doncaster here:

That's the chap Smudge!!!

I thought it looked rather smart compared to the mishmash of other liveries we've got. How many is that now? 6?7?

So is it just another Abellio livery or does it give any clues as to the next taker?
