Abellio Twickenham Garage [TF]...New buses for Route H28

Today I took the short trip down to visit Abellios Twickenham Garage. Twickenham garage is the main base of Abellio's West London operation with the garage running routes 117, 235, 290, 481, 490, 969, H20, H25, H26, R68 and R70. The garage is home to a mix of bus types although the presence of  Enviro 200's has started to become a lot larger since the blogs last visits with new batches for the 117, 290 and 490.


The main purpose for today's visit was to look at the new and old buses that are currently being stored at the garage for Route H28. Since leaving the depot, 8590 & 8591 have moved to Hayes and entered service on the H28. Ironcially whilst at the depot, I saw more Hayes buses than Twickenham buses! Thanks must go to the garage staff for allowing me on site to take pictures. Photos from the visit can be seen below:

Noticed in the picture of 8591 that it has yellow handrails and what looks like red seating. Is this going to be a new Abellio interior or is it just a one off for this batch of buses?

Do you know what buses in Fulwell will change to a red seated interior?
