Has anyone seen A747JRE out and about yet, thought it may have been on the EBE 'Busmans Holiday' Road Run yesterday.

I can confirm that Olly A747JRE is still very much in the possession of A2B :-)

No recent V5c change on DVLA so may be only on loan to Whippet

It has gone to Whippet this email fron Brian at A2B

Hi John
Hope you are well you can publish this is a clarification if you wish and I'm glad to hear your fit and well was beginning to worry .
Glyn sadly is in fact correct LJ56VSY has been reallocated to the whippet fleet to increase there pvr vehicle requirements, it will take a few days to update on DVLA  but she is definitely there's now and at least she lives on to battle another days traffic.
For the current time she is expected that remain green and in a simplified whippet livery.
KX57FMF is expected to follow suit in the next week or so as well.
As a little update we also have two longer enviro 200 in our workshops being converted to single door from dual door for them as well and these will (hopefully) arrive mid November
Thanks for all your support and effort in our services
Brian@a2b
