A good article about this company from Coach and Bus week has been uploaded to the Robinson website.

http://www.robinsonkimbolton.co.uk/robinsoncoaches.pdf

Also gives a rough outline of the fleet.

This is my list (compiled from PSVCircle records) of Robinsons fleet, as far as I know it is up to date
Hope it is of some use :) :)

Fleet list is very useful. Thanks.

Howver Robinson's seem to have acquired a tri-axle coach W87BAV which is painted in light blue but with Robinson vinyls.

Any idea what the coach is please>

There is a picture of a Volvo B10MT / Vanhool T9 at the 2000 Brighton coach rally at the link below with that registration plate.

The article I posted further up this thread did state that the company hoped to buy a T9 this year, so maybe this is it.

I saw this coach whilst driving past the Robinson yard last week, where the coaches are stabled (a few meters west of their forecort) and it has been painted into Robinson livery.

Not seen any Robinsons news lately but there was an all over white coach in their Kimbolton yard this morning. Couldn't get the reg. Is it a new one or a repaint?
