TDC website today still shows old 60 and 585 timetables (dated 23 April 2017). Is it possible these changes are not going to happen?

The timetable on Traveline indicates that the 60 is losing its Sunday service...

585 timetables now also on Traveline.

I thought that too up until I noticed Sunday was also missing from the current (old) timetable. I can't see any difference between the traveline timetables.  :(

New timetables now visible on the DeCourcey website,
The 22:00 Arena Park to Uni of Warwick 60A journey is removed, that is all.

Going by logic and by noting one of them having a '580' printed on a small piece of paper around front window I assume they're numbered 580 and 581

How many of the mcv's are now in full livery rather than just the plain white with stripes

There hasn't been much change since my last update in my magazine.

541/2/3/7/8/9/58/9/60/2/4/8 are all in Orange
544/5 are in the green variation
546 is in the yellow Air Ambulance livery

550, 563/5/6/9 are all still in the old version.

 Adding to the earlier report of a ex London Dennis Dart at Coventry I now can report that Six former London Stagecoach  Dennis Darts have been acquired, 4 are parked at the NEC de Courcey compound, 1 is at Coventry, and the other is at Miller St.
Four are, LX03 CAE, LX53 LGO, LX53CBU, LX53 LGF, at NEC and LX03 CAA is at Coventry. The sixth, do not no number, has been refurbished and is painted white and looks very smart..
I understand the 6 Darts have been acquired to asssist the Mercedes Citario's on busy day events at the NEC.

It's not painted white. There's a photo of it on the main site which will show its identity and livery

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.
The roof is on but still a long way off from completion. Building work seems to have slowed down.
