I'd class 7478 on the 6 as normal, any decker goes anywhere at Durham bar the Geminis which are stuck on X1s


RE: Arriva North East - Rare and Odd Workings - tyresmoke - 15/10/2013

Odd workings today thanks to Redcar:

7501 on 81, 7502 on 64A (though this interworks with X3/X4, both of which have a low bridge on their routes so I'm not sure how long it stayed on...) and another E400 was reported to me on 94 in Whitby...

I've seen many buses on the 64, but never a Omnicity!
