This summer 2007 depot view of Optare Spectra 722 (YJ51ZVF) shows the second version of the generic all routes livery, the charcoal dominated version having fallen out of favour.
Between Christams and New Year in 2010, Spectra 729 (YJ03UML) is seen in less pleasant weather, but the same livery.
Some Optare Excels were painted in the same scheme. This is 961 (X961BPA) seen in the town centre in July 2008.
The same bus is seen two hours later at the Station.
Optare Solos lasted the longest amongst the Optare fleet in generic livery, though this one is branded on top for the £1 Shuttle. Solo 111 (V946DCF) is seen in the town in May 2010.
