Hopefully these will end up vinyled into something a bit more exciting than dealer stock white!

The name on the licence is Murray, based in Trumpington, but the buses are stored at the Park. I am sure I have seen two coaches - maybe even one in white? - but I can only find one in my lists, EK 51 KYZ. Any more info?

I had thought Granta Park had two of the Setras, but having investigated their site several times I can confirm there's only the one. The service does require two coaches though, currently the other one is contracted from Kenzies and is normally D30BEW..

Although the licence may use a Trumpington address, the coach itself has Granta Park's address for legal lettering.

Thanks - I had presumed the 2nd bus was hidden somewhere. They do have two discs though - a discrete check of the Kenzie's bus would be welcome (try and not get the Granta Park driver who is sarky...)

The Kenzies VanHool is contracted in, has a Kenzies driver. The other vehicle on the licence could be the VW minibus used for the Whittlesford station service.

The new B7RLE's entered service this week, with AU12FGM seen this afternoon still in plain white.

I'm informed that both have legal lettering for Kenzies coaches, and are leased.

The other one is AU12FGN. And has purple Granta Park vinyls similar to those carried by the Setra.

A slight surprise this afternoon in Cambridge was Granta Park's old Setra EK51KYZ putting in an appearance at Addenbrookes in plain silver with no vinyls. Has it passed to Kenzies, or are Granta Park still running it under their own ops licence?

AFAIK the GP buses are all on Kenzie's o-lic. Being a private service it does not need to be registered for FDR/BSOG.
