BorderBus Geminis Move On

Following the acquisition of a trio of ex Stagecoach London Scania Omnicities, two of the BorderBus Wright Eclipse Geminis have now found a new owner in North Humberside.

The former BorderBus deckers are shown on the extreme left and extreme right of this photo both in Ellie Rose livery
The November issue of Buses, published yesterday, reported that both H43/27F seated LF52ZPC and LJ03MJU are now with Ellie Rose of Hull. The Suffolk based operator had acquired the twosome during the summer of last year. The former was new to London General in December 2002 whilst the latter began life with Arriva London North in March 2003.

I am grateful to Dan Dearing for his consent to use his photo of the two buses with their new owner. Dan has more than 130,000 photos on his dearingbuspix flickr site.



  1. Have all geminis now left borderbus

  2. Hi Chris. BorderBus still retains the third one but it was part of the trade in deal with Scania when acquiring the OmniCity deckers. LF52ZPB has been loaned back whilst the Scania’s are being converted and repainted.
