Dart 468 returns after makeover

Former EYMS W468UAG has returned from respray into Catch22Bus fleet livery and looks much improved after operating for a short time with us in its ex-Whittle green & white livery. 468 will go straight back into service. It has adopted a slightly revised layout to the livery with a 45 degree line separating the orange and turquoise and this will become standard for future repaints.
Next to be returned from respray will be ex-Cardiff S316SHB which is in course of preparation, having been delivered to the painters straight from being collected from its previous owners in Cornwall.
Other fleet news involves Dart MPD 466 which is currently away for MoT work whilst after a very brief return to service, 512 is soon to be sent away for a replacement rear axle.
