Details: Derek was actually the first person to send me a photo of the new RATP Dacias, after he visited Twickenham on the 8th of January 2020. However, he also returned there on the 22nd and captured this excellent overview. A couple of the initial ten cars had already departed (believed to have gone to Hounslow Heath garage), but a further fourteen of the same type had been delivered. Four had been here for a few days and had already gained fleetnames and numbers D75111/2/3/5. The other ten had only just arrived and were still in unmarked white. Eleven cars in total are visible in this photo, with more out of view. Also present were two Trident/Alexander trainer buses, an Optare Versa single-decker, and one of the MAN TGE minibuses used on the Slide Ealing service. The MAN TGE is a variant of the VW Crafter model. I was interested to note that these buses have minibus-style sliding doors. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinters used on the slightly earlier demand-responsive network based in Sutton had full-sized, bus-style folding doors.
