Minor changes at Potters Bar [PB]

DP1006 RX51 FNV is one of 14 DPs that have transferred from Brentford Garage (AH) to Potters Bar Garage (PB) for the Route 234, which runs from Barnet Spires to Highgate Wood. These Buses were recently refurbished seemingly for no reason but Metroline always know what they were doing when they do not look like they are.

The reason for the transferring of these Buses was to replace the older Euro2 Darts at PB that used to operate on this Route, as of January 2012 those Euro2 Darts would have not been able to operate in London due to the fact they are not LEZ (Low Emissions Zone) compliant so Metroline have made the decision early to remove those faulty Euro2 Darts from service as they were released by the retaining of the Route 209 contract with new Buses. It seems like these darts have settled in nicely with the staff at Potters Bar, they may not be new Buses but they are pretty reliable and LEZ compliant which is most important.

These things are far too old for a contract which will finish in 2015 really.
