Also saw two Leyland bodied Olympians including the ex Leyland Demo example and another in Guild livery. Despite this also saw an ex Stagecoach ALX bodied Trident and an ex Lothian President bodied Trident, so it appears that any intent to get rid of the older examples hasn't yet filtered through, perhaps though the 4 x Volvo B5LH/Wright Eclipse Gemini II's Hybrids due shortly might see some of these out.

Also saw the former Wright Streetlite demonstrator working as a private with its Northern Irish plate.

The Geminis have arrived looking really smart Smile here are the photos:

And very nice they look too; The Gemini's that is. Another querry here is that i've come accross an Internet Fleetlist that suggests the former Birmingham Busways Trident/President Y 2NBB has arrived here, can anyone confirm that it is here because i've not previously come accross any knowledge of this being here and neither have I seen it here?

Also how many ex-Stagecoach London ALX400 Tridents are here as the same list suggest two, but other lists i've seen have suggested rather more, but some being under conversion from dual-door to single-door?

There are only 2 ex-Stagecoach London tridents at Preston, X385/8NNO.

Y2NBB could well be at Preston, but its hard to say as photos of it are thin on the ground. I would trust the fleetlist on freewebs.com/nwbus though, as that is definitely updated with info straight from Preston Bys.

A lucky find in Preston Bus Station yesterday afternoon presumably on test was Volvo B5LH Wright Eclipse Gemini II on trade plates 120 CK and not numbered and without decals, but with Legal lettering applied. My guess is service after Christmas for these.

Acording to a friend of mine who drives for Prestonbus he told me that these Geminis are due out sometime in January and from what I could gather after he drove the one that was in Prestonbus Station the other day he was quite impressed with it

RE: Rotala - Prestonbus
perhaps slightly off topic, but passed a blue diamond (also a Rotala fleet) W DNO Dart heading north on M6 at Tebay around 1915 today (Thursday).
