Metroline CELF Center Part 19

Today was a nice hot day and with no college I decided to visit Metroline's CELF Centre located in Perivale, West London. The Center opened in 2007 as the Central Logistics Facility within the company

It deals with M.O.T, Chassis Cleaning and minor body touches such as paintwork and re-paneling. Last year the Center was upgraded to VOSA standard and now a number of vehicles from other companies such as London Sovereign and First London now visit the center every week for maintenance work. I spent the best part of an hour and a half just kicking back and having a laugh with the excellent lads at the center. I also got some interesting news too. It was confirmed to me that VP317 - 494 are actually on lease to Metroline by Volvo as well as VPL581 - 603. Aside that all other vehicles in the fleet except DP1049 are owned by the company, which is good news due to the fact the only other companies to buy their vehicles are Arriva and First. Of course It wasn't all talk and I did manage to take some photos.
