The new larger destinations, which I like and approve  of, are spoilt by the use of "squashed" letters g, p, q and y (as in this "Houghton") which is unnecessary and will nullify the improvements for the visually impaired - and it just looks awful. I have however seen "Washington" and "Bishop Auckland" displayed sensibly.

No - the two extra L94s likely to replace coaches, I think.

Still likely to be on familiarisation until Monday.

X70 runs onto X71 at Newcastle and vice versa, 6 & X31 interwork as before and X30 is stand alone, this service should in theory be operated by omnicities. The B9s for the toon link services can’t get under the Dunston bridge.

Off the top of my head, X30 is 3, X70/X71 is 5. 19 boards in total 12 omnicities 7 omnidekkas, however the board that does the 822 pm only does the X30 at 16:30.
