Hi all. I just have a question regarding the bendy buses that Callinan have (or had).

I remember back in 2012 Callinan Coaches received 8 Mercedes Benz Citaro bendy buses from London for a private contract as follows:

05-G-16947
05-G-16948
05-G-16951
05-G-16952
05-G-16953
05-G-16966
05-G-16967
04-G-16951

Does anyone know what the previous UK registration plate numbers (or ex London fleet numbers) of these 8 buses were? I am trying to work out which ones were which?

Also what has happened to these 8 buses now? Do Callinan Coaches still own them?

Many thanks.

Thanks. I will keep an eye out for that one. I wonder if any of the other seven will join it.

Thanks. I might have a look and try to get some photos next time i am in the area. I imagine they will probably be there for a while. I can't think of any bus operator who would want to take some. Unless maybe Dublin Coach or First Aircoach decide they need some more.
