 Withdrawn ex United Counties Leyland Olympian 14025 F625MSL has been reinstated at Stratford, covering for Volvo Olympian's whilst they are having the Chassis Mods Done.

 Last Wednesday, it operated the 0945 Service 16 from Coventry to Stratford, from there it should have worked the 1110 service 26 to Redditch and return, before returning to Coventry on the 16, howeverit was replaced at Stratford by B10M 20221 M221CRW.

 the first of the Enviro 200's for Rugby KX60LVN/O were delivered yesterday morning (15th), these are believed to be 36203/4, but confirmation is required.

 Volvo Olympian 16487 N137AET has arrived at Leamington from Chesterfield, whilst 16079 R179VPU has been withdrawn for Scrap with severe Chassis Corrosion.

 14034 F634MSP at Rugby is the final Leyland Olympian in the fleet, however its days are numbered as a Volvo Olympian is to replace it shortly.

 14028 F628MSL has been sold by Ensign to Hunters Coaches of Daventry where it joins sister F620MSL, 14032 F632MSL is also on teh premises but this is only being stored on behalf of Ensign.

 Further to my comments regarding the use of the B10M on the 1705 ex Rugby & 1810 return from Daventry service 10, tis now confirmed part of the Diagram.

They certainly wont be 36203/4, as they are part of the batch currently being delivered to Fife.
AFAIK the Warwickshire batch will be 36207-20
