Two sets of Solos replaced potteries non DDA ones. Around half are ex Norwich 2002 examples and the rest are 2003 ex Hereford which came when that depot closed. 

The Renown bodied Volvos and Scanias at Potteries have been replaced with early generation 2004 Transbus Enviro 300s. 


All-in-all the average fleet age at First Potteries is rather high!
