Is that unusual for an e300, admittedly a one off one, to be on there. I've seen it on the 144 in the past...

I've never seen it on the 44s before, I only remember seeing it on the city services (30, 35...), but you could be right

I photographed 66691 on the 144 in Birmingham today as well. First time I have actually seen the thing move (always been in the garage when I have visited Worcester) let alone in Birmingham

I bought my Wyvern day ticket from 66691 on the 44 this morning. 66693 also came off the 44 to do a 144 trip to Bromsgrove before running private this afternoon, so it seems there is some interworking between the 44 and 144

44514 is also on the 44 tonight

I'm starting to think the 44 converts to smaller buses in the evening, but I'm sure the last time I saw a late night 44 it was an E300

All the late buses (approx. 7pm onwards) bar the 144 route, are scheduled to use small buses in Worcester (Solos and Enviro 200s) but as a lot of buses are parked in the bus station in the evening awaiting drivers to take them to garage, some drivers will swap over the scheduled bus and take a larger vehicle depending on preference (obviously some routes eg 382 require a small bus so that would not change).

And on Sundays too, bar the 144. Speaking of First Worcester, where are all the B7RLEs?

The Centros? They were out in full force on the 44 two Saturdays ago.

Small buses on the 44 on a Sunday? It was two E300s last time I was in the area on a Sunday

No, the Wright bodied B7s. I'm not sure about the 44 as I've never seen it on Sundays
