Bus Eireann Fleet Allocations.

Would anybody be interested in doing a Bus Eireann fleet list here?

I know Yuku Irish Transport has it also but not sure if many boardsies are members of that particular site?

Would be good to have it here I.M.O

Below is the current listings in Capwell in Cork

Credit goes to SL10 for compiling it.

Yeah OT1 is in Broadstone.

No idea what Capwell will get to replace it.

A photo here of it from last month.

Broadstone will be the main beneficiary i suspect.

Other depots such as Cork might get lucky and received some but in very small numbers,maybe one or 2.

What are they? Are they like an LE? Like an expressway double deck coach or are they a commuter type one?

I'd take that with a pinch of salt my friend.

Appearently for years cork was meant to get a couple of LDs according to drivers down there but never happened.

I'd be very surprised if Limerick got an LF

Saw one in broadstone very recently, look good but time will tell as usual

I'll take it with a pinch of salt where Cork is concerned for now.

The Limerick matter was from a driver based there.

Yeah LF301 is in Broadstone at the moment i noticed.

Are you still driving for DB?

A few deckers were sent down to Broadstone this week.

Were you in Cork for work purposes?
