[Metroline] - Delivery continues for the new H40/22T "New Bus for London" buses for route 24. UW 12640 kgs. The buses are being delivered to CELF and from there to Perivale East [PV] to be stored until required for service on 22/06/13. The four buses that have been registered with "LK13" plates are being used on driver training. A `rough' guide, based purely on observations would suggest that 23 of the required 32 have now been delivered. If these totals are anywhere near correct, then the hot question will be whether there will be enough NB4L buses available to start the service on route 24 on Saturday 22nd June???
