The new Volvo B11RLEs with Stagecoach West Scotland at Cumbernauld are slowly appearing on services to London and it was a case of ‘London Calling’ for 50407 which carries that name when it worked a M11 service through Manchester yesterday. We understand it is the second vehicle from the batch 50406-11 to reach London so far. Our photo shows it in Manchester.
