Oh they were allowed to stop at the stop, just that passengers couldn't exit (or board in the case of wheelchairs) via the Middle Doors.

I think the Wi-Fi box may be a bit crispy - probably wouldn't work if put on another bus!

Seen Two Olympians heading through sunniside towards Stanley both with engineers at the wheel, and both still blinded up for Scholars.

Does this mean Stanley are swapping some buses with Riverside, as mentioned earlier.

I also seen a Vyking heading along Walker road with an engineer on board and another member of staff.

Out of interest, would this get covered in the vehicle's insurance claim?

Does the X84/X85 changover at Eldon Square?

They used to alternate at Hexham (and Ncle I believe), but the X85 now runs on to Newbrough and turns around and runs straight back to Newcastle.
X85 arrives Ncle :28. 
X84 arrives Ncle :02
X84 departs Ncle :40 
X85 departs Ncle :10

X84 arrives Hexham :43
X84 departs Hexham :55

X85 has a 5 minute 'layover' at Hexham (both ways) as it passes through.

Regrettably, the reality of bus insurance means that Go North East, like most large bus companies, will have to foot the cost of this damage themselves.
