Steven Knight Media  8)  is reporting that 34879 is possibly set to be disposed of.

It had an accident sometime in late 2018 and parts were taken and used to repair 35104.

3 double deckers seen serving the Citi 2/3 duty. 10010, 10868 and 10053. Also serving the 2/3 duty was 34834 which has rarely been seen in Peterborough since its repaint into the revised version of the corporate livery.

It was switched to not in service when it came in from Paston and was replaced on service by 34533.

Also Peterborough buses are all looking filthy these days. Think the bus wash must be broken!  8) :) :-[ :P

Westgate closed by a burst water main near John Lewis/Beales. Citi 1/2/5, 36 and 37 on diversion. The driver of an X1 coming into Peterborough wasn't aware, drove through part coned of road with sign saying road closed. Had to reverse about 400 yards onto Broadway to get out. X1 seem to have various routes into Peterborough, I have been on 3.

36011 on citi 1
Only saw two Go West in service 34426 cit 2/3 and 34530.

Could be all the Peterborough and Long Sutton buses have these signs in the window or available to be put up at any given time

Makes you wonder why they dont or didnt ditch the Go West business whwn Kings Lynn closed unless they are or were looking to sell the route

The route was subsidised by South Holland Council at one point not sure if it still is but I guess the contract is between them and Go West amd not Cambus but thats a stab in the dark

Bus route subsidies are handled by the county council, in this case Lincolnshire.
The 505 has only one supported service 1820 Kings Lynn- Spalding and the 1940 return journey Mon - Sat.
A review of supported services is under way and should be known by 19 February.

CallConnect services are expected to be untouched

I hope everybody was ok. The damage doesn't look too bad from the picture. There's plenty of withdrawn Darts at Bedford to pinch the parts off to rebuild the front end should Stagecoach decide it's worth doing on a 13 year old vehicle. Then again its engine could be used to resurrect one of the withdrawn darts as was done when 34879 donated its engine to 35104

This image, in the Peterborough Telegraph report – Car and bus collide on Peterborough roundabout – is interesting...

Look at the direction of the Ford Galaxy on the roundabout.

19696 on citi 3.

35104, when I saw photo thought it might be a case of the car driver taking the wrong route. Friend who saw site of accident agrees with my thought.

How is it we’ve never had any of these driver-trainer vehicles in service on the citi2 route in Cambridge‘s Mill Road?  Goodness knows, we’ve had every other kind of vehicle, old and new.
