Fleet Buzz Happenings 2012
« on: January 02, 2012, 12:51:27 AM »
This is a new format of note pages, for general day-to-day sightings, run-of-the-mill daily observations, and even the more unusual strays spotted in daily operation.

Open up a separate thread for service changes, and major announcements (i.e. PI callings, new ownership, cessation of operations, that kind of thing!)

This thread shall continue throughout 2012, but Admins reserve the right to cut one and start again if there are more than 250 postings in one particular thread, or if there is an argument or serious off-topic problems etc.

Enjoy!

Stagecoach fleet numbers have now appeared on Fleet Buzz vehicles, with Solos 53 and 54 (47739 and 47740) both seen this morning.

Mercedes/Alexander Minibus N907NAP (Fleet No 40907) has moved over to Fleet Buzz.
This takes over the mantle as the oldest vehicle in the fleet.

New to Stagecoach South as 907 in 1996, the vehicle now carries full Fleet Buzz livery and was seen at Three Mile Cross on the 1643 Fleet to Reading this afternoon.
Sadly no photo yet- Assuming that it would work the 1755 back to Crookham, I went out with the camera to record its return.
Due through Spencers Wood at 1816, I waited until 1840 (when  Solo on the following 1815 to Hartley Wintney appeared), but there was no sign of the Mercedes so either it was running (very) early or run into problems in Reading.
Will keep a look out and if I manage to get a shot then will post.
