No, one is only on loan. The MMCs have the Scania chassis yes.

Are North East Explorer tickets still accepted on Routes 267/464? I know they were when Glen Valley had them, but has it changed?

They should be fine especially as it's an NCC tendered route. I'll ask tomorrow and report back.

Thanks, just wondering as some operators Like Borders and PCL are new to services in Rural Northumberland.

Apologies for the late reply, I've asked and been told it should be accepted on both services.

Optare MetroCity 11704 (YJ17FWU) was destroyed by fire on the A7 at Falahill, near Heriot on the evening of Sunday 12th November.  It had been replaced in service after the driver had noted a burning smell, and was awaiting recovery to Galashiels depot when the fire broke out.

Meanwhile, Optare Versa 11301 (YA13AEB) has been repainted into cream/red/blue Borders Buses livery, the first of the Versas inherited from Perryman's to be done.  It looks very smart indeed.

It does indeed look smart, with a bit of luck Berwick will get 11208 back off Boswells now.
