Fleet Changes - July 2012

First South Yorkshire:
Volvo B7L Wright Eclipse Urban 60721 (MV02VBO) Is the first Single Decker in the South Yorkshire fleet to be released in the new livery for route 52 (Hillsborough-Sheffield-Crookes). The vehicle looks stunning and i must say i like the new first livery, Simaler 60707/9 (MV02VAF/J) is expected to be the next one to imerge in this livery. Allready Repainted are Volvo B9TL Wright Eclipse Gemini 37257/8/61-5/472-99/509-18/25/29 (YN07MKX/Z/LJ-L/O/U/YN08NLL/M/O/P/R/T/U/V/X-Z/NMA/E/F/J/K/M/U/V/X
/Y/ETA/D/E/ETY) of which 37257/8/61-5/487-97/509/11/12/37529 carry X78 Brandings (Sheffield-Doncaster) & 37472-84/513-18 carry 75 Brandings (High Green-Lowedges) & Dennis Trident Plaxton President 33061/3-71/9/82-4/99/123-9/30 (LN51GKU/X-Z/GLF/J/K/V/GKA/NK/NV/X/ME/LZ/LT02NVK/N-P/R/S/WXH). Certain of those are expected to gain brandings for routes 47/48 (Ecclesfield-Herdings Park) within the week, I expect these will be 33061/3-71/82-4/99/123-9. Volvo B7L Wright Eclipse Urban 60729-31/33-41/43 (MV02VCK/L/DD/F/G/L-O/T) have moved to Midland Rd, Rotherham from Olive Grove, Sheffield for the summer period. It was expected that Midland Rd would then place there Volvo Olympian Northern Counties Palatines into Reserve however there still out and outbound it seems.
