I don't think there is a list, but i'm sure anyone working with Centrebus Harlow would know which buses have been repainted.

At least one of the route 700 MCV Evolutions has been repainted, along with Ex-London Cen/Gen Dennis Dart SLFs 462 (R462LGH) and 484 (R484LGH). The Ex-Ipswich East Lancs Spryte P131PPV has also been repainted, but this is on loan to Centrebus up in Derbyshire or somewhere at the moment.

Dennis East Lancs P131PPV

Not exactly the right board, but as you mentioned P131, well P130 was working from Stevenage at the end of March....

Also, there is a picture of P131PPV in March 'Buses' on page 10 in a rather picturesque setting near Halifax operating route 528 to Rochdale. It still has the 'intalink explorer' sticker on the window by the front doors.

Now that sounds like a challenge!  ;D

I've previously done Royston - Chelmsford, Royston - Reading, Royston - Oxford etc. with these tickets, indeed did one to Bicester* at the end of March. Yorkshire might be pushing it!  :D




* - Royston - Baldock - Stevenage - Hemel Hempstead - High Wycombe - Princes Risborough - Aylesbury - Bicester, then X5 home to Cambridge to get picked up.

Looks like Optare Solo MX03YCM is now with Centrebus Harlow, seen operating one of the C2/C3 routes (cant see as camera hasnt caught the display)

Not a strange observation, but here is MCV AE55VGD operating the 351 in Bishops Stortford. The reason I am showing this picture is because its strange to see such a low frequency with people standing, and its quite a large bus. Maybe the frequency needs to be upgraded. The MCV looks smart in Centrebus colours.

Optare Vecta P10TLS seen operating the 319.

It looks as if the 351 is arriving at BS Interchange, as there are passengers waiting to be first off the bus (with blind already reset). Or is it?

Having said that, all Ware & Hertford routes take good loads around school times.

Depends on when you took the picture.  The 351 school run into & out of Bishops Stortford actually requires a dupe for part of it's length due to the number of school children on-board.  So if this picture is of the afternoon journey at school times out of Bishops Stortford standing passengers would not necessarilly be a surprise.

Thanks Suzy and dwarfer1979. I should just say, those pictures arn't mine, just found them on Fotopic, and most of the pictures are fairly recent.
