    Continued investment is key. But new buses dont grow on trees and take time to order / build.

    Unusual. I can confirm that at least one XLB was on service 29 yesterday as I saw it pass me.

    Lothian Motorcoaches SB19 GKX seems to have gained private plates. Any clues to what it is now registered as?

    Below are the details of the new dual axle Panther 3's.

    SB19GKU
    LC19AAA (SB19GKP) (AAA Coaches?)
    LC19BER (SB19GKV)
    LC19LMC (SB19GKY)
    LC19RAB (SB19GKZ) (Rabbies? Rather cheeky methinks.)
    LC19BUS (SN19CYU) - 9009

    Thanks! I see no reason for them to re-register them within weeks of buying them but I guess they will have a reason.

    I see SB19 GKX isn't there, and it's no longer showing on DVLA so it must have private plates too. Also that is quite cheeky of them with 'RAB' and 'AAA' suffixes...

    That's weird. I saw Panther SB19 GKX at Seafield and got a photo, so it definitely exists. I will attach the photo... SB19 GKX.JPG

    Quite likely in June this year, but I don't think it's confirmed.

    As I said before probably June this year, but it's not confirmed so who knows. The ones at Seafield and Marine look pretty much ready bar some fleetnames/fleet numbers on a few of them.

    I’d be surprised if strikes take place.
    You never know.

    Apparently a lot of anger and futrustion amongst most drivers even moderate drivers but it's always harder just talking about strike action to acutely going ahead with it time will tell if a big vote for action bosses will be forced to curb there ways

    Given that the issue at hand is with bullying from the management it seems quite likely that strike action will go ahead, potentially ending in figures at the top having to stand down. I can't really see any other solution.

    Can confirm 133. Just opposite the McDonald's at Gorgie. It's still there now.
