Woottens & Tiger Line news, November 2010
« on: November 09, 2010, 03:42:27 PM »
We are proud to announce the purchase of two brand new Volvo B12B/Plaxton Panther coaches, to be numbered W70 (YN 60 FMV) and W71 (YN 60 FMX). These are due to arrive on Thursday 11th November, and will subsequently be painted into a revised version of the coaching livery, which is being designed for us at the moment.

Leyland Tiger/East Lancs Myllenium W62 (A15 WTN) was hit by a tree (while out of service) during Monday’s storms.

Other news,
Volvo B12B/Plaxton Panther W44 (YN 06 MXW) is now C53F ex C49FT.
Volvo B10M/Plaxton Premiere W4 (B9 WTN) has been re-registered to N289 OYE and sold to Llgwellyn Coaches, Tonbridge. This coach was the first executive coach in our fleet.
Leyland Titan W53 (A869 SUL) was withdrawn from service after suffering engine failure, and has been sold to West Kent Buses.
Volvo/Plaxton W37 (B12 WTN) has reverted to being registered R186 TKU.

The two new coaches duly arrived on Thursday afternoon. Pictures attached. One went out on a day trip to Folkestone yesterday in plain white.

Four of the existing 06 plate Panthers were traded to Plaxton (Dealer) Anston;
W40 YN 06 MXS
W42 YN 06 MXU
W43 YN 06 MXV
W45 YN 06 MXK

A new fleetlist is about to be uploaded to the files section - scanned from the paper copy. Note that W44 is currently running as C53F.

To avoid starting a new thread... we have finally completed the leaflets with the Sept issue of the T3 group off to print. We have also reprinted the T1 in old style with some minor changes and corrections (I didn't want to reissue leaflets with old prices and a typo, so I changed the draft). T2 is also fairly recent.
