First London new Volvo registrations for TfL 25
« on: March 20, 2011, 10:23:16 PM »
As originally posted by Keith Nason on the LondonBusGroup... these are the forthcoming vehicles for the de-bendification of the 25.



The registrations for 65 VNs for First London for route 25 are:

36126 BJ11 DUY
36127 BJ11 DVA
36128 BJ11 DVB
36129 BJ11 DVO
36130 BJ11 DVN
36131 BJ11 DVR
36132 BJ11 DSX
36133 BJ11 DTN
36134 BJ11 DTZ
36135 BJ11 DUH
36136 BJ11 DVV
36137 BJ11 DVW
36138 BJ11 DVT
36139 BJ11 DVU
36140 BJ11 DZX
36141 BJ11 EBP
36142 BJ11 EAM
36143 BJ11 EAF
36144 BJ11 EAX
36145 BJ11 EBG
36146 BJ11 EBL
36147 BJ11 EAK
36148 BJ11 EAW
36149 BJ11 EAO
36150 BJ11 EBD
36151 BJ11 EBC
36152 BJ11 EAE
36153 BJ11 DVX
36154 BJ11 EAA
36155 BJ11 DZZ
36156 BJ11 DZY
36157 BJ11 EAC
36158 BJ11 EAG
36159 BJ11 EAP
36160 BJ11 EAY
36161 BJ11 EBA
36162 BJ11 EBK
36163 BJ11 EBM
36164 BJ11 EBO
36165 BJ11 EBN

Apart from 36141 the registrations have been issued in chassis number
order which presumably reflects the fact these vehicles are registered
by Volvo. I believe back in the twenties and early thirties buses were
registered then in chassis number order as opposed to bonnet number
order.

Forgot to add the date when the 25 goes to First - 25th June 2011. This will be the same date that the 26/N26 and 30 go from East London/Stagecoach to First.

What I find intriguing is that First have ordered Enviro 400s for the 26 and 30, which will be running from the same garage as the 25 and its new B9s. I wonder why this is the case.

Probably because ordering from two suppliers means they'll get the buses faster than they otherwise would from one big order with Wrights. Those E400's are most likely leased so they won't have to worry about cascading them.
