There are to new Volvos in service, not seen them yet.  A King Long was in the depot on Tuesday for viewing only. Photographed today ex Stagecoach Dart LX03 CAA fleet no. 343890. Nice and clean inside

In the next compound to Decourcey Travel are 15 ex London Enviro 200s..;.they do not belong to Travel de Courcey, but are in storage pending auction....these are some of themYX12 AGZ, YX12 AKK (DMV44223). YX12AYZ, and YX12 AZA. I could not get the camera through the fence to photograph anymore of them. They would be a good buy for de Courcey.

The building work at the de Courcey has been a standstill for nearly a fortnight. All the framework is in place and scafholding surrounds the
whole build.

Thanks for the detailed update! The E200s are ex lease Tower Transit examples of a batch of 32 recently advertised for auction in Route One. They'd be a good buy though I agree!

According to Route One magazine/website de Courcey is about to trial Irizar's new i4 hybrid coach - the first in the UK to use it, it would appear.

I reckon there is now at least one pit in the building now?

I've looked on there and can't see anything though, as the 735 goes out into Northern Warwickshire.
The TDC 735 is a once a day trip in one direction, leaving Coventry at 17:40, getting to Furnace End (In Warwickshire) at 18:35 and then it carries on to Coleshill (In Warwickshire) on request, it replaced the Rowes Coaches trip, the other trips are A&M operated.
