More new Solo's
« on: May 06, 2008, 09:32:14 AM »
Two more Solo's arrived last week - MX08 MZD - Optare M880 and MX08MZE - Optare M950. These vehicles are to be numbered 603 and 604, but I have not received confirmation of which is which. Both vehicles were being used on the Voyager School journeys on Local Link 408 from Tuesday last week.

These two vehicles are numbered 603 and 604 in that order and are currently on lease, as is Solo 599. Consequently they will remain in an all-white livery. At present 603 and 604 are used on Local Link 408 between Voyager School and Bretton, thus releasing 599 for normal Local Link duties.

Solo MX08 MZD has now appeared carrying fleetnumber 604. This is different to the number originally quoted for this vehicle. Have not seen MX08 MZE to check what number that vehicle is carrying.
