With thanks to Julian Patterson and Jenny Moore from Lynx, I can confirm another coach has joined the fleet. YRW194 is a 53-seater DAF SB3000 Van Hool Alizee which has been acquired from Grindles Coaches, Cinderford, Gloucestershire.

10 on the far-right is expected to return from repaint imminently.
It was new to Coupland & Cronin (C&H Coaches), Rossall, Lancashire as M611RCP in February 1995, transferring to Cronins, Cork, Republic of Ireland and then re-registered 95-C-14714 in January 1997. It passed to Ardcavan, Castlebridge, Republic of Ireland in March 1998. It reverted to M611RCP on sale to Evobus, Coventry (Q) in May 2002, but on moving to Brown, Edinburgh in August 2002, was re-registered KSU617. It reverted to its original mark once again on sale to Moseley, South Elmsall (Q) in August 2003. It joined Nelson, Glyn Neath, West Glamorgan in March 2004 and was promptly re-registered PJI3546, reverting to M611RCP in September 2009. It passed to Grindles in October 2009 and was given its current mark in November 2009.
YRW194 is a spare for the other two coaches and will have a repaint after 31 N175LHU. The company are also expecting 10 PF10MHM to return from repaint very soon.
