First Essex SOTD Winter 2011
« on: December 23, 2011, 11:16:27 PM »
Seen a few interesting pictures on Flickr:

ex-First London 41544 (LK53FEJ) has transferred to First Essex, and looks smart in the 'barbie' livery. It is seen here at Chelmsford on the 351. http://www.flickr.com/photos/kjs251/6561348021/in/photostream/

First Essex only has one operational step-entrance Dart left (46158 - N958CPU), and it is seen here operating route 56 in Chelmsford. http://www.flickr.com/photos/kjs251/6561347611/in/photostream/

Short Dart/Marshall 43800 (S979JLM) was seen operating the 100. I wonder how it coped with the Christmas crowds visiting Lakeside or Chelmsford! http://www.flickr.com/photos/kjs251/6561348343/in/photostream/

Chelmsford are due to receive 5 of those Caetano bodied Darts I believe.

These are Basildon allocated rather than Chelmsford.

I know K909CVW has ended up back in Thamesway livery, I think a First Essex employee bought one of the N reg batch but I'm not actually sure.
