Brylaine (ex Norfolk Green/Konnectbus) Optare Tempos
« on: May 21, 2019, 03:26:38 PM »
Brylaine have 4 Tempos by the looks of things

2 are on the road one in Stagecoach Norfolk Green livery the other in white and green (looks like the stagecoach blue red and orange has been painted over in green)

However there are 2 sitting in the yard in Stagecoach Corporate

All 4 could be from Norfolk Green

Brylaine collection of Tempos continues, in the yard this morning was and ex Konnectbus Tempo (possibly YJ09 MHZ) and a red one, possibly a Lynx Tempo or it could be one of the ex Stagecoach ones (picture above) painted into Brylaine red

At least 1 Ex Stagecoach Tempo (corporate colours) is still in the back of the yard

All unidentifiable as I would practically have to walk into the yard to get the details

Did also note a Solo SR in Brylaine colours

Would be interesting to a fleet list, I will send Steve Knight a message to see if he knows anything

I have just swung by on the way back from Market Rasen, since this morning there has been a move around, the konnect bus liveried Tempo is out of sight,

The mystery red Tempo which I think is a repaint of a former Norfolk Green Tempo as it had a fleet number on the black bar above the rear side window which suggests it come from Stagecoach, me thinks its either the second Tempo in the picture above away from the shed (view was blocked so couldnt see if its moved, only visible and not moved is the one next to the shed) or its the silver and green one (this wasnt visible from the gate)

I did notice a Versa in the yard as well, this is in Brylaine colours and has route branding on the black bar above the windows, this has either come from Stagecoach or Konnectbus me thinks

Just done a bit of digging since post above

Just took a look at this https://bustimes.org/operators/brylaine-travel/vehicles

I see they have YJ59 NNZ the Tempo with the leather seats this was run until the end of business in Kings Lynn and it would have been one of the 7 remaining Tempos that sat in Hamlin Way for a year

This is getting very interesting

And rather smart it looks too https://www.flickr.com/photos/45726467@N02/47975220648/

Seems like a no-brainer to me if another operator has a fairly standard fleet of middle life DDA compliant vehicles going for sale locally

See they have had a shunt around in the yard in recent weeks, from the picture above of the 2 Tempos parked side by side the one in corporate colours has been moved, this could be the on now sporting Brylaine Red with the leather seats

Its position has now taken by what looks like former Stagecoach 25125 YJ56 WUH which has the front 2 wheels jacked up

No sign of the the former Konnectbus Tempo
