B&H Tridents on A10 towards Ely
« on: August 17, 2013, 06:14:33 PM »
A pair of Brighton & Hove Dennis Tridents with East Lancs bodywork heading down the A10 towards Ely this afternoon are these bound for NG or Konnect?

Hello Richard,

If it was these,


then they were new purchases by Greys of Ely, and arrived there about an hour ago!

I would've suspecedt KonnectBus; members of the same national group, although, Norfolk Green don't (yet) buy exclusively new vehicles.

But, hey! Grey's.

It will be interesting to observe whether these vehicles see service in their Brighton & Hove colours pre-repaint.

Some operators (eg Whippet) tend to do this as a matter off routine, others rarely.

By the way, what's the blue 'decker in the background?

Thanks Adam,

Hope you had a good day out as well.   I see they have Plaxton President bodies - they look good, and I should think will look even better once painted up.
