When is a bus not a Classic Bus, that's the Catch 22 question. Former Lothian Buses Olympian P269 PSX was still operating with the Classic Bus North West logo on the upper deck windscreen on 2nd December, over a year after the company ceased to exist and a day after its successor company was renamed. Classic Bus North West Ltd ceased trading in December 2013, with their buses coming under the umbrella of Oakwood Travel Services Ltd. It was announced earlier this week that with effect from 1st December, Oakwood Travel Services would henceforth be known as Catch22Bus Ltd. Several of the single deckers have already been repainted and rebranded into the new Catch22Bus orange and turquoise livery, hopefully the rest of the fleet will receive the corporate livery in the not too distant future before another name change takes effect.
