Metroline CELF Centre Part 25...What a lovely surprise!

Today with the permission of the Metroline CELF Centre staff, I had the pleasure of being allowed the walk around the premises of this truly state of the art facility.However whilst there just by chance I had the shocking yet pleasant surprise of meeting one of the industry's most well known faces; Ian Rivett, for those who don't know he is a very well know photographer and meeting him was surely the highlight of my day. The reason for visiting the Centre was just to have a general look around.

At the Centre today, there was nothing other than usual VWs and TEs, ect, those of you who are regular visitors of the blog will know exactly what I'm talking about. There was one surprise at the centre today; this is that all the VWs for the 79 have now been delivered to the facility, this is really shocking considering the 79 contract starts on the 26 Of November 2011. Reports have suggested that they will be used on the 297 initially, however these reports are unconfirmed as yet, so I think I'll wait until this is confirmed. Now A lot of you may think I just walk into garages and take photos; however I cannot stress enough that all visits to garages/outstations and depots by us members of the Blog (Myself, Jack and Rohan) are planned prior to us actually visiting them and we have to comply with the safety rules whilst on site, such as keeping on the walkway and wearing our high visibility vests. We highly recommend that prior to you going a garage, you contact the operator first as it can land you in trouble. Many thanks. COL Blog Team. More photos from the visit are placed below.
