TrentBarton 207, Maid Marian Way Nottingham, 13-08-2018
Having done a few circuits via Friar Lane and Mount St, the brand new Enviro 200MMC heads south along Maid Marian Way.
The introduction process for modern vehicles is a far cry from the old days, where it was very much "It's like the others, just watch out for..." and off they went, figuring out the foibles of various gearboxes and the like along the way. The complications of computer control, interlocks, and a myriad of warning lights mean drivers have to be formally type trained on buses prior to their introduction - a cost perhaps the operating industry can ill afford in these budget restrained times. Now if the manufacturers could be encouraged to standardise things.... :)
