Look out for Stagecoach East moving Optare Solo 47659 from Bedford to Cambridge and outbasing it at Ely depot for the Ely Town Service, replacing an Enviro 200 on the route. Besides the Megadekka seeing use at Bedford, also in regular use here are a couple of the former Cavalier Wright-bodied Volvo B10BLEs. The open top Bristol FLF is reported to have returned to Peterborough and will be attending this year's Showbus Rally at Woburn Abbey on Sunday September 20th.
