Seeing as my days at DHSB have come to an end I think this week it's appropriate to post a few photos of the stalwart Volvo B10Ms (and a rouge B7 sneaking in too!). The first photo, although technically imperfect, has quite accidentally come out really well in a very interesting effect. Unfortunately the shadows were playing havoc making any really good photography nie on impossible, but for historical importance there's not much that can beat a perfect lineup of 4 B10Ms doing what they do best. A scene soon to change, not only because Plymouth Citybus are withdrawing the shorter distance routes due to Plymouth City Council withdrawing their funding, but because of this is seems likely the B10Ms will be totally withdrawn, although as we so often see, plans can change! With a new man at the helm of PCB we may see the B7 deckers off into public service competing with other routes. There have certainly been sightings of B7s in Torpoint, so will be interesting to see if this will indeed materialise into a competing route with the 81/A. Aside from that there has been questions arising as to new services replacing the traditional Plymouth school network, and I am now in a unique position to say that at DHSB at least, we will be introducing new services to replace PCB's existing routes. I was asked by senior management at DHSB to come up with a solution to the problem, filling the gaps that would now exist in services for DHSB pupils. My new network has now been finalised and tender agreements have been drawn up, allowing us to start tendering to various Plymouth companies very soon.
