|Metroline's Potters Bar garage was in the news earlier this year when a major fire in the rear yard destroyed six buses. The fire had started in one of the Optare MetroDecker electric buses (like OME2656 in the background here), and all examples of the type were taken off service for a few days while investigations into the cause of the fire were ongoing. This also affected other users of the type (Go-Ahead London and RATP), though it was soon determined that the vehicle was not to blame. The return to service of the Potters Bar fleet was delayed somewhat since several of the electric charging points had been damaged.
Enough about buses, this photo shows the crew ferry parking area in the front yard and was taken on 23rd October 2022. The main subject is Vauxhall Vivaro minibus DL70RGZ in unmarked white. First noted in September, this vehicle is perhaps only on loan, the same applying to silver Mercedes minibus WR71ODV just visible on the left.
