Always Green Arrow E200MMCs on the 12 on Sundays. The 97 and 12 interwork on Sundays, I think.

Yea. Sunday set allocated. Unsual as I think this is the only GNE Sunday allocation that's rare
Nope there is some boards on the X5/X15 do runs on the 16A too usually using yellow X-Lines Streetdecks.

Ah. I'm barely in that area on a Sunday. I only know the 12/12A allocate everytime I see it in town
Neither am I, but it doesn't stop me from going on bus times to do a little research.
5450 on X70
5252 was on the Q2 today

I think this little snippet constitutes a rare/odd working.

Looking at Bus Times today, it seems that Go North East are operating a new service (999) around the Wakefield area using 6346 (YX70 OHW).

This makes sense actually. As Lothian have recently migrated south of the border, operating around Consett and Stanley, it would be expedient of Go North East to look at Yorkshire to potentially expand their operations.

It was 6377..and I don't know why but it could be what was saw in Dan Graham tweet https://twitter.com/Dan3942/status/14022...03136?s=19

I'm not convinced by your reasoning.

The tweet/video that 'Dan' posted looks like it was shot at night. Now, I may be a pensioner now and my might be old but, looking outside, it is clearly daylight, so it can only presume that it has nothing to do with the tweet posted by 'Dan', whomever that is.

As the service number is 999, perhaps it is a new emergency service operated by Go North East?
