I paid a visit a month or two back: https://www.flickr.com/photos/23917561@N03/37097603776/in/dateposted/

Sort of half built at the time.

There is not much chat about DeCourcey these days?

Even their news section on their webpages look like nothing has happened for ages. The Christmas running dates refer to Christmas 2016! Remember Diamond ran the 60 on Boxing Day last year!

Traveline shows service operated on each day over Chrismas under each route. They are not running 60 on Boxing Day.

Thanks for the info JoNi.
Will another operator be running the 60? I think Diamond did it last year.

Was the 585 running today? Gave up waiting for it. The MDC web pages are little use and only talk about Friday's  disruption.

What new depot?

The building work appears to have grinded to a halt again.

I would imagine the loss of JLR will have significant cash flow implications for them now so building a new depot is probably lower on the priority list...

When at Travel DeCourcey today I can note that all the interior concreting had been completed, the outside perimeter walls are up  the correct height and bricklayers are building interior walls.
Among the ex London Tridents to be seen, as reported earlier in this coloum on January 24th, were LX03 BYG has been mechanically completed and the bus was about to leave the depot on route for repainting in I suggest Birmingham Miller St. premises. And LX03 OPU is completed overhaul/repainting, but  has not entered service up to date. Two other ex London Tridents 817 and 822 look in a sorry state, (822 after RTA) and are surely withdrawn.
