New Optare Solos enter service
« on: August 02, 2015, 08:33:17 AM »
Good morning all - August already!!

The new Optare Solo M990SLRs entered service yesterday - or maybe the day before, but the first I have seen of them was August 1st. They are:

48021 YJ15AAZ (Named Ben Colson MBE)
48022 YJ15ANP
48023 YJ15ANR
48024 YJ15ANU
48025 YN15ANV

According to Andy's Bus Blog, they entered service on Friday 31st. Nice to see the tradition of naming the fleet lives on.
