Seems early for a 4 year old bus to be getting a repaint when there are a lot of 2011/12 buses still not done. Is this one in for a specific reason or is it just the first of the 2013 batch to go in?

The 2153-77 batch at Coventry don't look too bad in the main, although the white area on some is looking a bit patchy. 25 vehicles to repaint from one garage is quite a lot - so this is going to take a while I presume.

Hopefully fairly soon, I've noticed a bunch of them looking rather pink at the front.

BC's are pink too. WA's '61' Plate E400's are scruffy now.

When the Hybrids (5401-5430, 5501-5518) are repainted/refurbished whenever that is what livery will they get?  I did here a whisper at Cannon Hill Park that will just be crimsoned, If this is the case will they have leaves painted/printed on them like some London Hybrids ?

I think Crimson but instead of the gold, a classy shade of green would look good

I wonder what their interior will be. TBH their current interior is still going well and not fading or wearing out.

I'll do a full update later in the week, but 4628 is now at Walsall, so that completes the whole of the 46xx batch of Tridents at BC.

It is also the last Trident currently planned for a full refurb
