Saw 6015, 6018 and 6021 out on the 4 route today ! (Went for a trip up to Holbrooks on 6015).

A horrible sight was to be seen down at Wheatley Street Garage this morning, when just after 10.00am, i saw 6016 being towed off from the front of the Garage by a "PVS" tow-truck, sadly taking it on it's final journey ever !

I saw 6013 being towed off to Barnsley by a "PVS" lorry this morning !

I also saw 6020 and 6021 out on the 4 route today, although i don't know if any of the other Bendi's were out at all ? (Went for a trip on 6020 on its last trip up to Holbrooks earlier tonight !).

There are 4 Bendi's out on the 4 route today ! (6015, 6018, 6020 & 6021).  6014 was inside the Garage parked over one of the pits !

I left Town at just after 2.30pm and up until then, "PVS" hadn't arrived at all today to take either 6017 or 6019 away ?

6014 is running again after failing on Saturday, nearly ready to return. PVS weren't due today

I saw 6015 out on the 4 today, but not too sure if any of the others were out at all ? (I'd say "YES" to that !).
6014 was still parked over one of the pits inside the Garage Maintenance area !
6017 is still standing outside at the Swanswell end of Wheatley Street Garage, waiting for "PVS" to come and collect it ?  Was told that it should have gone today, but i left Town firstly just before 1pm and it was still there, then when i left Town for the second time at just after 4pm, it again was still standing there ! (Not that i'm in any rush to see it go that is, as i personally do like the Bendi's !).

Is there going to be a last running day for the bendies? I would like to take a last ride on them.
