This demo is fantastic.... not. Wait for it at Eldon Square it arrives late and leaves NIS. So follow it on next X1 to Houghton Le Spring. Bloody thing disappears at Easington Lane. Really this is taking the urine. I'm working over the xmas hols and today was the only chance I could get it as I doubt it be bloody out boxing say.

Is it meant to do this according to the rota board or is it doing it for fun.

"The "Red Arrows" X1 and 921 services currently operate with a batch of Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B9TLs new in 2011 and 2012, and are now beginning to evaluate suitability of different vehicle types on these routes."

Don’t forget this was built for exhibition at the show, so has all the latest top spec features fitted rather than what any one individual operator might buy

Depends very much on the areas of the region the bus serves!

Why buy comfortable seats when you can have people sat on the usual ironing boards instead? Big Grin

I'll let you off, as we are in that period where we don't know what day it is, whats happening and can we still drink alcohol at 10am?

Act first, think later!

I don't drink but I refuse to move from bed until its time to get ready for work. Not that I'd be allowed to work if I did drink...!

Personally i don't drink on school nights anyway but I've drank since Friday night.

Gin is like pop, i'm at work tomorrow, but it's like you, i can't go in to work with alcohol on the breath or drunk etc.
