They're (gradually) being repainted into the standard fleet livery for the Midland ops and are just part of one pool of vehicles. IMO they weren't particularly well suited to the X38 anyway and the bigger, heavier B7s worked better.Does anyone know what has happened to the 65 plate Royal Route branded buses that usually are on the X38? Seems to be exclusively their ramshackle collection of 09 and 57 plate buses on it at the moment. Whilst I don't think customers are particularly bothered which type of buses cover routes there is certainly a noticeable step change in quality between what First are currently serving up against the 13 plate buses LCB put up for its X38 (even if the stickers did start falling off!).
