  • Paul James Coaches merged onto Centrebus board.
  • Transdev London United renamed RATP London United.
  • As requested a new Heritage & Preserved Railways board has been added.
  • Topics on the railway related board have started to be moved into the new operator child boards, but as this is rather time consuming it will take a while for all of the topics to move to their new homes.
