3 ex Stagecoach deckers arrived in the yard yesterday viz - S587 BCE, S589 BCE and R562 DRP all CH47/32F.

I understand that more are in the offing although numbers and dates are awaited.

Noted this morning in Wisbech on Embling School Route TT2 was Volvo Olympian/ NC N293CKB in full, if somewhat battered, Arriva aquamarine colours. It has two sets of legal lettering, neither of  which are either Arriva or Emblings/Judds. I just wasn't quick enough to memorise them. This route is normally the home of P350ROO or  occasionally F105AVG.

As a P.S., much has been posted about the E9XXKYR Olympians but no mention of 908 which used to do the COWA run to KL before 922 was repainted. Any news, anyone?

E908KYR Was scrapped back in January/February 2012

Pity they didn't take 16588 S588 BCE from Stagecoach South as well.  It rattles into Reading a couple of times each day and is often seen breaking down!  These were good vehicles when new, just been thrashed!

Emblings P350ROO was noted on the A14 at Huntingdon this afternoon.  I also note that this vehicle was among several advertised for sale in a trade magazine this week.  The others including D125FYM, XIL9826, all the E---KYR's,  and two Plaxton Paramount bodied Volvo B10M's

Is this a very recent acquisition of Embling? Came across it around lunch time Lots of cables about when I first saw it, and then it started up and went off under its own steam. note the top deck nearside corner.

if it is deckerbus, and with them being local, you would think they should know which way to drive through the bus station
