  5. Well then, to say goodbye to step entrance and non DDA double deckers I headed off to Burton on 31/12/16. I managed to get a trip on their MCW Metrobus, my favourite type. The bus in question was originally an MCW demonstrator. There is a video of a Leyland Olympian and a Routemaster on my channel.

  7. Well, this turned up on my local route this morning - 15A/15C Sutton Coldfield Circular. I have been told it has happened before but I havent seen this on there before - it's supposed to be single decks due to the train bridge in Erdington - though this is clearly running short to Sutton Coldfield as seen on the display. This is NXWM Volvo B7TL 4251 on the 15A

  9. 60 photos from today, including a few of the debranded (soon to be former) Sutton Lines Enviro 400s as well as a part branded one. These will be debranded as the rest of the Platinum buses arrive. Album https:[email protected]/albums/72157673889726272/with/30254395341/ See the rest in the spoiler
  10. First Day/First Video National Express West Midlands Alexander Dennis Enviro 400 6802 905 (FIRST DAY OF PLATINUM ON SUTTON LINES) - Perry Barr Garage The repaint released on Monday is the livery worn by this bus. Today I give you the first video of a Platinum Bus on the new upgraded Sutton Lines 902, 904, 905 and 914 routes. Note how the next stop display says the old Travel West Midlands name instead of National Express West Midlands. Bus is 6802, route is 905, filmed between 1330 and 1350 on 14/10/16 in HD between Sutton Coldfield Lower Parade and Erdington. Yes, I do speak to the driver at the end. I also caught 6798 this morning on the 904, after spotting it while on the 15C, getting off and then getting onto that bus. These buses feature a voith gearbox and stop start technology.
  11. A low quality photo of BRAND NEW National Express West Midlands Enviro 400 MMC 6799 reversing into Sutton Coldfield (Lower Parade/Gracechurch Centre) at around 7:58 this morning. It is to advertise NXWM launching Platinum on the Sutton Lines services 902, 904, 905 and 914. Now you see why the Platinum repaint for the OMSI 904 map was released!
  12. A collection of photos from this year, spotting and the WMT 30 event. You may have seen some already.

  14. Note to staff: Permission has been given for this member to publish repaint (he requested as it was partly his idea to create it in the first place). Please note, copyright belongs to me as opposed to the member that uploaded the repaint. If anyone would like to use the repaint and modify it, please contact me as opposed to the uploader. Thanks.
  15. Within the next two months, National Express West Midlands will be upgrading the Sutton Lines (902, 904, 905 and 914) routes to Platinum. As a result, this repaint has been created (and will be released as beta, as rumours of route number changes exist and so there are no route numbers on here yet). You will be able to download the beta version soon. Rumour has it that NXWM will operate the first Platinum buses on the Sutton Lines, based at Perry Barr Garage, within the next two weeks. This will result in the current 2013 (63 reg) Enviro 400s being debranded and transferred garages and routes, allowing the B7TL ALX400s at Perry Barr to also be transferred resulting in 2005 (ex-NX Coventry) buses to be used on routes 65 and 67.
