Watford Gap Services: More First E20Ds

One could argue that Watford Gap has featured a lot as late due to the numerous amount of new vehicles destined for London arriving there on a daily basis. Credit must go out to Steve Buckley who helped us obtain these shots.

First London Enviro 200 DMV44271 YX61 FZO stands here at Watford Gap Services in Northampton after being delivered from ADL's Scarborough Plant in Yorkshire. This is one of 10 10.8m examples that are due to be delivered to First London's Dagenham Garage (DM) for the Route 368. Interestingly enough the Route 368 did get 10.2m long new E200 Buses last year , however TFL have reticently decided that the Route 368 needs longer vehicles as there are high volumes of passengers that use the route on a daily basis. So the current DMLs that operate on the Route will bet transferred to Lea Interchange for newly won Route W15 off Arriva. 
First London E20D DML44272  YX61 FZP stands at Watford Gap Services after completing the first leg of its delivery run from ADL Scarborough to First London's Lea Interchange Garage where it will operate on the Route W15 which has been respectively won from the Arriva.

Why do you saw that DMV44271 will work the 368 from DM but then say DMV44272 will work the W15 out of LI? Won't they both be at DM?

No the 368 runs from DM.
The W15 will be running from LI.
