TrentBarton 76, South Sherwood St Nottingham, 22-02-2014
The Red Arrow uses two generations of Irizar coach. Here an i4 is seen having left Victoria Bus Station on its way to Derby. When the photo was taken some journeys continued to Chesterfield - these have now been cut back to Derby to assist reliability.
Red Arrow has its ancestry in a joint Trent and Barton express service along the A52 - Trent 101 (Loughborough - Nottingham - Derby), and Barton X42 (Nottingham - Derby), which pre-deregulation were coordinated time-wise and offered interchangeable tickets. The route was also formerly part of the National Express 952, later Trent 252, then R1, then Transpeak.
