Barbie 2 Solo?
Well an interesting sighting we have here, of Optare Solo YK05 CDO. Just walking along through the town centre it caught my eye simply because it looked like it was in the old Barbie 2 livery! I was somewhat right in this. The bus doesn't have the larger first logo down the side now the swipes of blue and white, along with the pink stripe also disappearing. The bus had not long been in the standard Barbie 3 livery. As you may have guessed this is one of the vehicles which came from the Truronian fleet on takeover. The bus has the 'Discover Dartmouth' website on the side so I presume that this is the vehicle used on the Dartmouth Park and Ride which First recently took over from Tally Ho.
