Reading Transport Fleet List: Delivery of
the new Enviro 400s 751-8 has been delayed, with the first two expected w/c 22 September, with the next 6 following
at 2 per week. 835-7 will be retained temporarily to help provide
cover but will now be sold
instead of remaining in the fleet. In addition an Enviro 400
demonstrator (fleet number 798), an Enviro 350H demonstrator (fleet
number 498) and an Enviro 200 demonstrator will
be on loan from Alexander Dennis to enable the enhanced 21 timetable to commence
on 22 September as planned (although they won't necessarily be used on
the 21). Once cash vaults have been fitted they may enter service before
22nd, although won't be on late duties due to a lack of assault screens. 211-3 are to be repainted into generic livery once
deliveries are complete, 214-7 are generally going to run the 20A and 751-7
the 21. An additional feature of the new vehicles will be white LED
destination displays as per those fitted to 226.
