THE future is bright, the future is silver for the Examiner.
And a familiar sight on Huddersfield roads is to disappear.
The famous bright orange vans that have been delivering the news to shops for decades are on the way out.
As many people in Huddersfield have noticed, there is a new kid on the block.
The orange vans are being replaced by a sparkling silver fleet of eight Ford Transits and four of the smaller Ford Transit Connects.
They will replace the old Transit and Escort vans that have been darting round the district, getting the news out first for the past four years.
Over the decades there have been many different makes and models, from the early Hillmans to the Austin Maestros of the 1980s.
Examiner transport manager Neil Stonehouse is delighted with the new look.
He said: "It will take some getting used to not seeing the orange vans, but we think that it was a bit outdated.
"The latest orange colour was not the original one, because it is hard to get that shade any more.
"The silver is as distinctive and it has the new Examiner masthead on it as well, so we are all very pleased," he added.
Each new van will cover 50,000 to 100,000 miles during their four years before they are replaced.
Some orange vans will still be on the streets until February next year, when the whole fleet changes colour.
