Nearing the end of its days in Augst 2012, sister vehicle 3822 (N522MJO) disgraced itself in Castle Street, High Wycombe on the 33 as Volvo B7RLE 3867 (KE05FMM) heads into town on the 31 from Penn.
Perhaps the appearance of red route 33 Dart SLF 3821 (N821NJO) in Marlow on route 800 to Reading in January 2011 confused passengers less than one might think. In the days of Thames Valley and Alder Valley the buses to Reading used to be red as route 28 or 328. In 2016 Carousel started competing on the route as the X80, again in red.
In the blink of an eye the destination changes to reveal the intermediate points along the route as a reassurance to counter its out of the ordinary livery.
The bus is seen earlier in Wycombe Bus Station before the blind has been set for Reading. The only Wycombe services beginning with 6 are Bucks school contracts numbered in the 600s - curious.
Plaxton Pointer bodied Dart SLF 3214 (R214GMJ) is seen in service in Watford on the W1 in December 2003.
