Solos regroup with Centrebus

The six Solos sold in 2011 were split between Centrebus group (261/2/4) and Holmeswood Coaches (263/5/6). Centrebus allocated 261 to its Bowers fleet based at Chapel-en-le-Frith in Derbyshire, while 262/4 ran in the Huddersfield area. Holmeswood used 263/5/6 on tendered services in the Preston and Blackburn area and registered 266 to R5HWD.

January has seen 263/5/6 join the Centrebus group fleet, with 265 and 266 noted at Waterloo (Huddersfield) depot, the former in white and the latter in Holmeswood colours. 263 has been noted with Bowers carrying cherished plate B8WER.

Meanwhile Trident 306 has been reported as suffering rear end accident damage on Thursday on route 14.
