Everybody likes a month end bonus and today, this was mine.
Last October when ‘trentbarton’ replaced the assortment of coaches that were then running the ‘red arrow’ services with brand new Volvo/Plaxton 6 wheelers (see blog dated 26th. October 2015).
The ‘assortment of coaches’ were dispersed. One was retained as a spare on the ‘red arrow’.
Some including a number used on the Nottingham to East Midlands Airport ‘skylink express’ (see blog dated 25th. April 2016) service were passed onto other ‘Wellglade’ fleet members and the 2004 vintage Scania/Irizar’s were sold off.
Today, as I was walking toward the bus station this turned up.
FJ10 OXP ’notts & derby' No. 74 Scania / Irizar i4

From some angles, the previous livery is still visible below the surface.
