Further new Enviro 400MMCs delivered to Walkergate are 11294/96 - they arrived yesterday.
Richard Smiles, who assists us with Fleet Ramblings and book production, advises that although a new ADL Enviro 400MMC was delivered to Walkergate with SN69ZRJ registration plates attached and subsequently has fleet numbers 11502 applied it should have had registration SN69ZPJ fitted and the identity 11281. The error has been corrected and delivery of the real 11502 (SN69ZRJ) is still to be made.
Another Enviro 200 due to leave this fleet for Go Ahead’s Plymouth City Bus operation is 354.
Previously unreported by us is that a number of recent Enviro 400MMC deliveries from ADL show the vehicle type as E400D on the chassis plate rather than the previously used E40D.
