Colourful Cornwall!

As the title suggests , Cornwall is rather colourful on the bus scene - but of course for all the wrong reasons. Due to the fire at Western Greyhounds depot on 13th May, Carmel Coaches , Arriva , Anglian , Norfolk Green , Stagecoach and Blackpool Transport have all loaned a few buses each to Western Greyhound to cover for the 37 buses wiped out.

Most of the hired buses are on route 591/592 (Newquay - Truro - Newquay circular) though I have seen them on other routes such as the 547 or the lengthly 510 Newquay to Exeter.

Stagecoach Devon dart 33783 was based at Torquay depot at one time so I had quite a her miles on it, so its good to see it again at Western Greyhound. The Blackpool Solos are quite nice too, with the powerful Cummins engines and  nice interior, passengers are not recieving any lower standards than if the fire had not of happened.  Western Greyhound have done an amazing job of keeping buisness running as near to normal as possible, despite the odds of having few buses etc.
