« on: October 23, 2009, 10:41:00 PM »
Noted in Bury St Edmunds today were the following operating for Burtons:

M232 TBV - Alexander PS bodied Volvo B10M-55 new to Stagecoach Ribble. White with a dark lilac skirt.

P167 BTV - Northern Counties bodied Volvo Olympian new to Derby City Transport. All white with no relief. Arriva website details one of the windows.

Neither had any fleetnames or bodywork lettering.

M232 TBV has now received a yellow band above the painted blue skirt, a red band over the windows and Burtons fleetnames.
