There's a Scania Enviro 400 MMC in Busway livery in the yard at Bedford half rubbed down for repaint. I couldn't get close enough to make out which one it was.
It does beg the question how come Bedford are painting these when their own ex Kings Lynn Enviro 200 MMC's have to be sent to Chesterfield for spray painting.
Does anyone have any ideas?
That must be a second one ??  Just to confirm that 15294 YN17OND has been repainted into the NEW Green & seen in service today on the Busway (which can't be your one...al_557 ??)

No sign of the two Manchester electics in the yard, so I'm guessing they have moved up north

Your photo is of LF69UYY which as you say belongs to Manchester & is 14031.   

Just to let you know that the week before "our" two (14033/4) entered service, there were actually FOUR EVs at Cowley Rd, as Manchester's 14032 LF69UYZ was also here, being used for Driver Training whilst 14033/4 were prepared for service with ticket machines etc !!

Yesterday evening on 13A's were 19580 and 15641, passing each other on their respective workings at Linton. I'm sure the pax on 15641 were pleasantly surprised by the lack of rattles compared to the Gold Scanias....

Some local councillors (and the press) made (mis-informed) criticisms of Stagecoach bringing in in the 10 'dirty' ex-London vehicles.

D'oh! They ain't 'dirty' they're all upgraded to Euro VI and fully TfL LEZ-compliant.

True, they've been loitering in Mill Road's traffic jams, amongst other perambulations.

Must say, I've never been a big fan of route-branding. When they're 'off-route' it's confusing for passengers and looks ridiculous.

It sort-of works on Cambridge P&R with the replacement (grey) vehicles branded 'just the same, not as colourful'.

LED technology and 'smart' panels are developing, so, maybe, we can look forward to buses illuminated, mid-deck and at the rear, with either generic or route-specific branding?

Any ideas on what this is, David?

Returning to normal route through Fendon Road roundabout?
Service reductions during cover-19 pandemic?

Whilst out on foot this morning five Citi 1s and four Citi 3s passed me in either direction. I appreciate this observation is merely subjective & few buses have many passengers on mid morning particularly towards the end or beginning of a route. However the most I saw was three passengers on any one vehicle; it was usually one, two or none. Difficult to see how a 10 minute frequency can be justified off peak in the current situation.

Around noon today 10866 (YX67 VDA) was seen being suspended towed eastbound on the A11 near Kennett (between Newmarket and Barton Mills). Any clues where it might be bound for?
