London Sovereign new DEs..the latter batch

Yesterday myself and the other Blog team members, Rohan and Tyreece visited a secret location in London to gain shots of London Sovereign's new DEs for Harrow Garage (SO) for the conversion of the Routes: H9,H10,H11,H14 and H17. Three of this batch are already at Harrow Garage with two,DE71 and DE74 reported as already in service on the H13 and H14 respectively.

The new DEs weigh 7,780KGS and have a new interior which is expected to become standard on all London Sovereign vehicles. Upon us arriving there there was a gentleman from IBUS installing the equipment on board which suggests they may be set to enter service in the very near future. There are 26 Buses located here, however with all of them logo-less, it does strike me as odd...

I dont think this is due to be a new colour scheme

I recon these buses were originally made for a stagecoach contract... but were no longer required and sold to Sovereign for a cheaper price

You might be talking about DE76, although the engine on DE72 seems a little bit flimsy I think. But I love these buses. They remind me of the X reg DPS buses that London Sovereign had, especially DPS531,who was my favourite
