A few highlights of some movements for the local bus & coach operators i take a interest in:

Decker Bus, Whittlesea:
Now in use here is A 3rd ex Arriva Merseyside Volvo Olympian VIL8682 (N298CKB). Iveco Eurorider CN53FYV (ex Veolia Wales) was displayed for the first time at the UK Coach Rally.

Former Nedexco Volvo`s now working for Visbeen

Good morning All, been a while hasn`t it!!

Last night i saw 5 former Nedexco Volvo FH`s parked up in a compound off Algores Way in Wisbech, not all was readable from the road, but some of them were:

BS-LS-21; BS-JH-65, BS-LH-67, and BS-RR-69.

These are now operated by Bolle Transport, based in Middelharnis, Holland, and are sub-contractor to Visbeen, one of Hollands largest road hauliers. The 5 vehicles noted last night carry Bolle brandings on the front with small Visbeen brandings on the doorsides

Former Nedexco Volvos have also been noted in service with another Big Operator from Holland, FTT Group.

Nedexco ceased trading back in September 2011.
