Lynx Fleet News
« on: August 29, 2019, 06:42:10 PM »
Former easycoaches Tempo MX05 ELC and MX05 EKZ are parked up in Lynx yard in Kings Lynn

One of the are now in unmarked white whilst the other still in easycoaches livery

Now these two Tempos are in the same yard as all the withdrawn buses such as the pink Spectra, two Sragecoach Tempos and the one from Konnectbus

The blue and white Optare is stored along with two former London red Gemini Pulsars which incidentally stripped of parts

Dont know what the intention with all these Tempos whether they are all going to be spares or whether all 5 will go back into service

Swung by the yard on Maple Road yesterday and I see the pink Spectra was gone whether this now been scrapped or whether it was out in service I dont know however I believe it isnt registered

Did see one of Peels buses in the yard RIB5086 not sure whether Lynx now own this as well

GOV.UK shows it as taxed until 1 September 2020, and https://bustimes.org/vehicles/188964 suggests it's back in service.

Thanks, must have taxed it between me going there on 29th August then, explains why its gone

Where it was located appears to be where the out of use buses are

No 49 back in service all week due to extended maintenance on No.51

The Peelings coach has now gone only to be replaced with 3 Tempos from Yellow Buess

R9 TYB, R12 TYB and R17 TYB

so now there are now 9 Tempos awaiting either being put into service or donors for spare parts

Seems odd they are stockpiling buses, could they be gearing up to take over the 505

2 ex Stagecoach
1 ex Trent Barton (green livery)
1 ex Konnectbus
2 x ex Easybus
3 x ex Yellow Bus

P330RVG was withdrawn in July and has now entered Preservation.
