No Centrebus fleet numbers have been introduced onto the Trustybus fleet, but the Centrebus livered Trustybus allocated vehicles have been numbered, with the three numeral numbers of the registration plate, ie Dart R484LGH is 484

Plaxton Dart DPL2/542 on route 7/7a and 319. Dart 161 L161XRH is still blue a year after Trustybus brought it from National Express.

The new fleet numbers are still no being used- Trustybus fleetnumbers still in use on all vehicles.

The reason on why Centrebus brought Trustybus was that Trustybus was in debt.
John Podgorski's Busmopolitan page has more information on this matter.

MCV Evolution AE55MVL and Dennis Dart R141RLY are now in Centrebus livery, with Centrebus fleet names and Centrebus fleet numbers. RLY was in the new style Trustybus livery, while MVL was in silver/blue livery. All other vehicles, have now had Centrebus added, and Trustybus removed from the LED destination boards.

Agreed! Im a big fan of the Trustybus livery (on this bus, and the others too). Its a shame to see it go   :(
The Centrebus livery isnt too bad, i think it looks quite good, but not as good in comparison.

Side by side- Trustybus wins all the time! It is a shame because I was hoping that one of the MCV's would be painted into Trustybus livery.

I think you'll find that due to the way LED blinds work, often a digital camera only captures part or none of whatever is being displayed. With some cameras its possible to adjust the camera (or so I'm told) so that it can capture the blinds, however this often leads to a less good picture overall.

Ive been advised in the past to slow the Shutter Speed (Like you would do on a night shot) and the desty's tend to come out it only seems to be a problem with Brightech's even though Hanover are a problem with deciding to flick on and off depending on when you hit the button to take a picture and the lighting aswell.

Its currently at their Halifax depot, I know someone who has just started working there and apparently its there to provide cover until four 59 plate Tempos arrive at the end of February.
