To celebrate the centenary of United Automobile Services, Arriva have
repainted Volvo B7TL / Alexander 7446 (NK05GWY) into a historical United
livery - this fine looking vehicle was on display in Darlington
yesterday. Also, sister 7445 (NK05GWX) has gained a vinyl wrap which
combines Arriva and United liveries in a zip effect, a scheme which
looks unusual and striking. Steven Hodgson kindly illustrates these.
Bob Laycock reports that Dennis Dart SLF / Plaxton 1309 (X531GGO) has
now reached Darlington and is in use and confirms Optare Solo 2504
(Y294PDN) still in use there.
