Wonder if it is a immediate effect and whether all the buses based up there will be transferred and renumbered?

Not yet... Haven't seen it for a while. It may be hiding in the panel shop. Had a nasty shunt on the bootlid...

One by one, they are sending them to their Panel & Paint shop in Swanson to repaint into Ritchies colours...
