Interesting,  wonder what they will use them for especially the spectra unless it will be for the school run,  seems to be older buses than they have now

They might need it as they are still operating at a loss.

Anyone interested, go to https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/ and type in Coastal Red.

As a small company they are not subject to audit but still file accounts.

The latest are for up to September 2016

Could simply be down on profits which have been re invested into fleet etc??

Reports are that they are taking 3 07-plate Tempos from Trent which will presumably help cover the extra pvr for these services (the report I have seen on an East Midlands Enthusiasts group listed Trent 316-318 as the vehicles involved).

There could be more, Trent are in the process of withdrawing their Tempos (they have about 10 07-plates as well as some older 54-plate ones and some 07-plate ones at Kinch though I haven't heard anything about those being withdrawn at the moment).  I think the fleetnumbers quoted were correct but it was a report I read in passing so I may have missed one or two.
