Two more Volvo B7TL Wright Geminis have arrived. They are still in London Red and are ex-Tower Transit 32361/82 LK04HYN,HZN.

WD440 is in use on Schools Only work, whilst WD 439 is receiving attention & being made ready for use. Until Hanover Electronic blinds are fitted during refurbishment, both may well be used on Schools Only.
