It's true, and not a rumour!

Various buses have been subbing, including Darts and I think the buses due for the 25 before they went on the 25...?

None wee seen on the RV1 yesterday during my time in the Covent garden area yesterday.
Never ask a dustman to talk shop.
He will only talk a load of rubbish!

I read somewhere they're due back relatively soon.

Luckily the fire was nothing to do with the actual hydrogen system, it was on an unrelated part of the bus.

Fuel Cell bus WSH62991 was seen 'Not in Service' at the Mansion House at around 5pm today. I took a photo from a passing bus but the quality was rubbish.
