VG16 in the new livery and on the 100X today. I don't see it posted here, so I'll mention it.
There's actually only a couple of VC's (original type VC's) left on service now, about 5 or 6. They'll all be on schools this time next year.
I think the reason the VR's went on schools before the VP's is because they are a horrible bus and the VP's can still regularly be seen on a few
Expressway services now and again, where as the VR's couldn't do express work. Most of Cork's VR's are on schools in Ballina and in Longofrd.
Sorry VWL119, didn't mean to confuse things with the 'couple' and the 'handful' wording but i'm sure you know what it i mean LOL.
Yes very sad that there's only a HANDFUL of VC's left in service.
Regarding the SR's and VP's, i actually think that the VP's will go on schools before the SR's, and the reason being because the SR's are
01 and 02 reg (the first batch of them) and the VP's are 00 reg, and i know people who would rather the VP's go on schools first because of the fact
that they are that little bit older than the SR's, i would like to see the SR's going on schools first but i think the VP's will go first. I know
alot of people who don't like the VP's anymore, alot due to the fact that they are slow and sluggish, but thats nothing that a good overhaul
couldn't sort out. But i do think the VP's will go on schools before the SR's, but i would prefer that they didn't.
That list is close enough VWL119, but this is the correct version of it;
SR1- 4, Dundalk
SR5- 7, SR15 - SR22, Cork
SR9 - SR14, SR25 - SR28 - Limerick (Roxboro)
SR23, SR24 - Monaghan
SR8 scrapped in Limerick due to fire.
Monaghan don't have any VP's anymore. They used to have VP333 and VP341 but they were mostly based in Cavan but 341 was in Monaghan alot before she
left. VP333 used to be in Dundalk on route 70 to Athlone/Galway all the time, and VP341 was in Broadstone before Cavan got it in 2003/2004. Both VP333 and
VP341 are now in Ballina, outbased in Achill Island, replaced VC129 and VC130 at the start of this year, or possibly at the very end of last year. (Dundalk
Monaghan and Cavan are all the one depot/area). I'm not exactly sure if Monaghan have SR23 and 24 or if they are mainly in Dundalk but they are around
Monaghan and sometimes Cavan alot aswell, but SR1 - 4 are ALWAYS in Dundalk. Monaghan have all the VC's with the 03 D reg, VC301 - VC306.
Seems its only just Cork (Capwell) are the only crowd with both the SR's and VP's together.
