The last two dual door Enviro 400s, 19299 and 19300, were collected from Cambridge today by Stagecoach West for use during next week’s Cheltenham Race meeting. However, we understand that they have both failed during transfer.
Go Ahead has announced that it is to place an order for 13 new single deck vehicles for the former municipal operation in Swindon which it took over last month. No details have been disclosed on the make of the vehicles but they are expected to be delivered around September..
Look out for two Enviro 200s joining the fleet in the next few days from Stagecoach Midlands, whilst two of the remaining three ADL Enviro 400s here are likely to be cascaded elsewhere within Stagecoach UK Bus.
