Fleet lists updated and update on Stagecoach Fleet Book     Date added: 04/12/2016
  Fleet lists updated and update on Stagecoach Fleet Book

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce that an update of the fleet lists available for purchase has been completed, with the updated lists now available for purchase.

The most notable change reflected in this update is that the Metroline list now includes the Stansted Citylink operation. We are also still tidying up the Arriva lists following the various restructuring that has taken place within the Arriva operation during 2016.

With regards to the pending 2017 Stagecoach Fleet Book, this book finally got sent off to the printers during the past week after some last minute editing, and we await an update from the printers on when the book will be completed, delayed partly due to their heavy workload in the lead-up to Christmas. Once we know more, we will put out an update. We are also taking pre-orders of this by e-mail, through the Contact Us function on our web site, or by phone, with requests for payment not being made until we have signed off the proof with the printers.

To purchase the updated lists, either visit our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.
