Just what Essex needed, a clapped out B6 following those awful MPDs! Then they are going to get all the old T and V reg Tridents and that newer one leaves.

Those Solos weren't very good that we got from them. Both companies have not very good buses (B6s, MPDs, step entrance Darts, Solos, 3 axle Olympians etc), and good buses (Tridents, B7TLs, Volvo Olympians, 34333, B7RLEs etc)

All buses at First are generally not good because of the strict engineering budget each garage has, now and again you will get a half decent vehicle - but other/smaller companies will have better vehicles in general.

48085 is the worst B6 we have left, suprised how it hasnt fell apart actually, its only at BN to cover for other vehicles and will be returned soon, unless essex like it and it could say til February when the tax runs out.
