Pleasant Views

Line 5 red liveried 254 turns onto the Promenade on a Line 4 working
Southbound Lines 3, 4 and 15 were diverted via the short stretch of Pleasant Street from Dickson Road to the Promenade as part of the Town Centre bus route changes. All three routes are operated by Solos and have seen increased variety of liveries and variants recently. Line 4 is now seeing the use of long wheelbase Solos - perhaps helping to cope with demand along Whitegate Drive following the reduction in frequency on this corridor.

Line 2 liveried 284 works Line 15 to Staining.
In other news, Trident 319 made a rare appearance on Line 20 on a wet Sunday 19 September - only one of the open top Olympians was observed - Volvo 377 was the third other working. Disposal of the Line 6 Deltas is now complete with 107 and 112 departing today. Deltas 101, 102 and 123 remain in use; 118, 119, 122, 125-127, 132 and 133 are in store.
