TrentBarton 326, 311, Friar Lane Nottingham, 29-07-2017
A comparison of standard and SR Tempos, on two services that were once one! Trent ran the 102 (Bingham - Nottingham - Derby) for many years, before splitting it at Nottingham after the takeover of Barton. The 4 in i4 comes from the parallel Barton operation between Nottingham and Derby.
The Tempo has not been a great seller for Optare, especially the SR version for which TrentBarton were the only UK customer, until Manchester Airport took delivery of some in 2017, although some were sold in Australia. The model has largely been replaced with the Versa-derived Metrocity.
