Further Decline of the Dennis'??

A few weeks back I heard romours that Stagecoach Torbay Alexander Dennis Trident WA05MGU 18301 was operating in Barnstaple due to a North Devon Wave branded one being damadged by a tree. I did get to photograph it early this Morning (27/10) while waiting for a bus in the opposite Direction. It was Working a 21 towards Bideford, I didnt really think much of it after that.I did wonder why they didnt bring another Trident up from Exeter to cover the V.O.R one as they have 21 from Torbay, surely one is spare??

After a trip down to Plymouth on Jacketts Coaches X85 on Dart MPD BX54DLF (which was a very enjoyable trip. Definatley take a trip round the Devon countryside if you have a spare morning) and a short afternoon in Plymouth, we took the X38 on Enviro 400 MX07HND (horrible thing!!) back to Exeter. There I was very suprised to see another Torbay Trident 18302 WA05MGV with very tatty North Devon Wave branding about to work an Eveing 155 to Barnstaple. I really couldnt think why Barnstaple would have MORE of our Tridents , even though they had 21 04 plate ones off of us back in March/April.

I rekon that the 183** are departing from Torbay because of the fact we have 23 Scania Enviro 400's , about 5 or 6 elderly S/T plate Tridents and I've also heard romours that a few of the Volvo Olympians may stay for school work and the Paington to Kingswear 120. Who knows...only Time will tell!
