Does anyone have any details for Brighton & Hove's 2014 order? Had a brief scout around, but can't seem to find anything.

24 long-wheelbase Wrightbus StreetDecks for the Coaster 12 service, numbered 921 to 944. They will have the older front-end, not the new angular style and will be in a blue/green version of the B&H livery.

There are also 10 Enviro 200's and 2 Volvo B8RLE/Wrights due for Metrobus, the latter for Fastway. The Enviros are rumoured to have a modified livery.

B&H havent bought any New Scania Omndekkas, They purchased Wright StreetDecks for Service 12 which have begun to enter service, which in turn would release the Scania Omnidekkas which were on Service 12.

They're Wright StreetDecks, the design similar to Gemini 2s.

Yes, the majority are being prepared for service at Brighton & Hove's Newhaven Depot (used for maintenance purposes) and a handful have now entered service.

Brighton & Hove's fleet list is available here. If you click '2015' under the 'deliveries by year' section (above the red 'Current Fleet as at 10 April 2015' banner), you can see the examples which have entered service as there is a date next to the fleet number/registration and the majority of these have 'BH4 Coaster 12' which links to a photograph of that vehicle.

Looks like the Destination has fired a Blank at the Person who took the Photo, and they have then went and Cut/Pasted the Destination off another Photo, and put it on the one attached above, thats how bad it looks in my opinion.

You think? I'm not keen on the green / blue, but the vehicle itself looks really smart. 

I'm down there next month so I'll get to see for myself.

I am very much looking forward to seeing the 30 New Stagecoach Enviro 400MMC bodied Scania Double Deckers enter service at Canterbury (15261-15290), which are expected early next year.
