Thank you very much to Seaford & District for help and extra information!
Here we see 528, W828PFB on it’s first day in service with Seaford & District, already in their smart, immaculate livery, leaving Three Bridges Station on it’s way to Lewes on a Railway Replacement service. (Photo by Alex Fairweather of the SEBEG)
Here we have 526, W826PFB, a batchmate of the previous vehicle, from a low down angle just before leaving Eastbourne on a Railway Service to Hastings. This one is in Victoria Coaches livery and at some point will receive their Victoria fleet names/logos (Photo by Alex Fairweather of The SEBEG)
And last but not least, is the most recent Ex First Volvo acquired, OIG1793. It is seen here upon arrival from First Group, branded for Somerset Buses. Seaford & District have re-registered this vehicle as X23SEA and should have Seaford’s livery very soon, which it will look very smart in! This bus is a B10BLE, unlike the two previous others which are B6BLEs.

In other news, Seaford & District have also gained the contract for Eastbourne’s well renowned sightseeing bus service. There will be mostly modern double deckers used with an occasional surprise! So keep your eyes peeled. The launch date for the service is 19th of March, so save the date!
We are also hoping to add a Seaford & District Fleetlist to our site, which will be on it’s way shortly! 🙂
