Riverlink update

EDIT: Sorry its not Riverlink any more is it! Riverlink has now been rebranded and Rail River Link by the Dartmouth Steam Railway and Riverboat Company.

So pictured at the top very obviously is Plymouth Citybus Mercedes 709, N289 PDV still in the old livery with fleetnames removed. She had just taken over from the Vario on local service 25. Yet another company that is possibly reverting back to the faithful 709? Good to see that yet another 709 has made it into further use though!

And below we have WTU 647W now named 'Molly'. All the fleet have now been given names (excluding 289 at the moment) which I've always felt is a nice touch and makes the fleet that bit more friendly and personal. Much like 'Dennis Dart' though saying "I want on Dennis Dart today" doesn't really narrow it down very much!

I understand the company has actually been rebranded as the Dartmouth Steam Railway and Riverboat Company :D

Ahh! Thank you very much, I shall change that. I saw on the website the company name has changed, but thought I better stick to what's on the side of the bus, in case I was wrong! Thanks!
