More Trident repaints

Two further Dennis Tridents are now under repaint with 336 as the final ex Blackburn bus to be painted into the new livery following expiry of its rear end advert. Alongside is 329 the fourth of the 2006 Line 11 Tridents to be treated. Once completed this will mean 12 out of the 40 Tridents will carry the new livery. Nine of the last ten repaints have been Tridents following an initial focus on Line 16 Solos.

Of the 30 Tridents purchased new between 2002 and 2006, 16 have now had their first repaint - all nine of the 2002 batch (301-9) and three of the 2003 batch (310/1/4) were repainted into Line 14 livery in 2009/10 and now 329-332 of the 2006 batch have received the new livery.
