The decreasing number of RV's...

With the decreasing number of RV's on the city streets, I've decided to look over some of my recent and not so recent photos and post a few up here... over the next few days expect to see RV's across many depots/routes...

Donnybrook's RV569 to kick us off:
RV569 is seen here at the 44 terminus on Townsend St., and not Eden Quay as the scroll states!

Last weeks trip to Coach & Bus Live was a little disappointing with quite a small show at the NEC this year. However, a trip into the centre of Birmingham allowed for some good photos. It was nice to see that National Express West Midlands still had some vintage MCW double deckers in operation, even if, to use the phrase of another site, they were a 'scare at peak time' for the most part.
3070 is seen here after just leaving the terminus of Route 107 bound for Sutton Coldfield.
