Metroline VWs stray away

Thanks to this excellent shot by Peter Horrex, we now have pictorial evidence that the new VWs for Holloway routes 43 and 134 have started to stray onto other routes at the garage after many reports confirming this over the last few weeks.

The new VWs are part of a batch of 79 Buses for the garage following the company's retention of routes; 4, 43, 134 and W7. The VWs have been split into four sub-batches that go as followed; VW1244 - 1256 for Flagship route 43, VW1257 - 1288 for the Route 134 and a further two batches of, one being 18 buses for the W7 due in August. The garage could potentially recieve a further 29 of the class the re-gaining of the Route 24 from Go Ahead London General which will take effect on the 10th of November 2012. I have to admit the VWs are a classy type of vehicle that I actually wouldn't mind seeing in London's Streets especially in this hot whether as their state of the art air ventilation systems are second to none. Not to mention the stunning paintwork and great colour contrasting interior. I am sincerely a fan of VWs!

I too am a fan of these vehicles..... Its just a shame that London United use Scania Omnicitys on the 71. I hate the Scanias as they are too uncomfortable and I honestly think that they are horrible looking. Both of which are the complete opposite to the VWs.
