Why did they make the merc citaro sapphire? I never see it on the 110 and is usually as stated got 4200 on instead
The Citaro was Sapphire before it came to Tamworth.
It was Sapphire when it was on the 321 (Luton - Watford).
Local Routes,
NXWM - AG 11A, AG 11C, PB 28, BY 55, PB 94 plus one BC 70 and BC 94C a day in each direction.
Diamond - Tividale 25 and Redditch 28A.
Social Travel - 11C.
DTS - 11A.
Claribels - 55 and 94.
Green Bus - 843.
Plus, TGB 844, Igo 800 and NXWM BC 14 a bit further away.

They didn't 'make' the Citaro a Sapphire, it arrived in the Midlands as a Sapphire and yes it does work on the 110, but you won't see it in Halesowen very often

It does get on the 110, just as 4200 and the Sapphire E400s get on the local routes, just as Platinums end up on non Platinum NX routes, so be it
They got it originally because they needed extra vehicles to provide the enhanced frequency

I wonder if there will be another "Midland Red" liveried bus, like there was for the 80th birthday.

I will have to get my Verometer ticket machine out!

Re the February timetable changes, it's interesting that the three earliest 110s from Tamworth start with a trip round the "4" route.

Does anyone know of the new linkings? From what I can see, the 4 and 5, 7 and 8 and 765 and 785/6 are linked.
