The links off this page now lead to a genuine full group fleet number summary

http://wmbusphotos.com/FirstUK/Firstindex.html

It is correct to 26/2/16 and I hope to do the regular updates to it when I receive the company fleetlist, and I will gradually add all the registrations in as and when I get time.

Normal underlining is links to a photograph of that vehicle the same as all the other links

They did leave the group as I photographed them at Plaxtons last week, must have been hired back again

First group have finally sent me a new fleet list today, as this is the first one since May it will take me some time to sort out all the moves, but they will hopefully be listed on the main site by next weekend.

(This answers a query posted last month that I cannot find which thread it was posted on)

Surprised myself by managing to write a google sheets formula that picked out all the changes from the last six months, so here they are

There will be several more changes over the coming weeks as Worcester receives more Volvos for the 'refreshed 144' route from Leicester. There are currently 3 at Worcester, with 2 being in service and 12 being expected. Hopefully First will send you updates on a more regular basis in the future!!

Did it say what happened to Solos 53045/6 as I thought they went from Worcester to First South Wales but according to that list they have gone elsewhere outside the company?

They just show as status 'disposed'

 The midlandred.net website says both to Herdmans Coaches c.4/17. This operator also operates some ex TWM Solo's if I recall .
