Trident disposal update

A post today by Mike Sandham on the Blackpool's Trams and Buses Facebook group has shown former 336 with Dews Coaches of Somersham. This had been rumored to be with Selby, Stockdale - but this is clearly not the case.

So far only six withdrawn Tridents have gone for further use - the younger long wheel base examples:

  • 333 with Mortons Travel of Basingstoke, refurbished and reseated with 94 coach seats still PN52XKF presently, but expected to be re-registered
  • 334 with Selby, Stockdale
  • 335 with Mortons as 333 and now registered (E13BUS)
  • 336 with Dews, Somersham
  • 337 with Selby, Stockdale
  • 342 with UK Coachways/Vision Bus, Bolton
The ex Blue Triangle (338-341) and ex Bus Vannin (343-348) Tridents remain in store.
