Rail Buses 25th and 26th February 2017

After a confusion with the text not wanting to go on a new layout, I have gone back to this layout again. Continuing on the subject of Rail Buses, last weekend was yet another Rail Bus service on both Saturday and Sunday.
What do I think of what was on it? Well it wasn't the best local Rail I have been to I have been to better ones. This was due to showing up late once again I need to learn from showing up late and getting there a lot earlier as because of that, I missed lots of the action. Well I managed to get myself some photos though and I'm going to share them in this post.

Changes to Bus stop layouts

Enviro400 19048 (MX56 FRR) at the new Loop stop
 Bus Stops are all over the place now due to the upgrade works to the Town Centre The Loop, 1,1A,1X,51,55,56,99 stops were all moved for example the Anti-Clockwise Loop has moved to the old 51/55 stop and the 51 and 55 were moved to the old 56 and 99 Bus stop. Photos of all these new positions are now good enough to be used on this post. Enviro400 19048 (MX56 FRR) is pictured at the new Loop stop on the Loop.

Enviro300 27516 (GX06 DYV) at the new 1/1A/1X stop
 Now onto the 1/1A/1X new stop. These routes are not working from a stop that previous routes were. To the left of the page ADL TransBus Enviro300 27516 (GX06 DYV) waits to depart on the 1X a route that is scheduled to have these Buses on. They're not suited to the 51/251/252 (Need to photograph one when I see one on it in the Town Centre as it's an really rare working). Some have worked them routes recently and they made it to Tunbridge Wells and back without breaking down as they're so unreliable.

Scania 15773 (GN91 EVW) on the 99
 Now onto the new Wave 99 and 56 stop. Hastings based Wave 99 branded Scania N230UD/ADL Enviro400 15773 (GN61 EVW) on a Wave 99 journey. Still need to ride and film this as I've been on all the others and have filmed them as well just need 15773.

Now back onto Enviro400 19048 (MX56 FRR) on a 56 service from the new 56/99 stop. When I photographed it, there was only one passenger onboard it no other passengers. 56 route is so poorly used.

Now onto a Scania which has been on Town work most of this week so far working the 1/1A and the Eastbourne Loop. 28608 (GN61 EVM) is pictured below on the 1A.
I love odd workings Scania Enviro300 28608 (GN61 EVM) at the new 1/1A/1X stop
Now onto another odd working on the 1/1A Scania Enviro400 15506 (GN09 BDF) at the new 1/1A/1X stop.

Back to the new Loop stop now and Scania Enviro400 15504 (GN09 BCZ) loads in wet weather for another Loop to Hampden Park.

We are now going to the new 51/55 stop for a really rare working A lost One branded Enviro400 19648 (SP60 DTF) on the 55.
A lost one! Enviro400 19648 (SP60 DTF) on the 55!
Thought it would be rude not to include a Enviro400MMC on the Wave 99. Here is unbranded 10702 (SN66 VVO) at the new 99/56 stop on a odd working of the 99. I have been on 10701 on the 99 and it was good for an E40D.

This is something I will eventually get used to.
