It is, engine-less.

Anyone know if DD16 GAS is out and about today

1325 leaving Newcastle


RE: Stagecoach North East: Latest News & Discussion - August 2017 - Michael - 04 Aug 2017

With DD16 GAS on demo, i hope they can sort most of the problems out on the Omnilinks.


RE: Stagecoach North East: Latest News & Discussion - August 2017 - Michael - 05 Aug 2017

What time is DD16 GAS out today?


RE: Stagecoach North East: Latest News & Discussion - August 2017 - Michael - 05 Aug 2017

At least 2 Omnilinks out today, first in a while.

Quite a few people on the one i'm on.

There is a Dennis Trident (or a bus that looks like a Dennis Trident) at the rear of Sunderland Depot. Seen it as I was going past on the E6.

Anyone been looking at the X55 passenger numbers? I have seen a few pictures (albeit at Dalton Park) but it looks pretty dead, and perhaps easy to cull if there is a next round of service changes.

Woeful in my experience - I've often had the coach to myself when I've travelled on the service.

It was a bit of a bizarre service from the start. Hartlepool has a regular hourly service to Dalton Park with Go North East's X6 service Mon-Sat, so the chances of someone picking one of three journeys per week on the Stagecoach Saturday offering are slim.

They had a really good chance of making something quite interesting with a Stockton - Dalton Park - Newcastle express service, but assume too much of a political risk with the competition.

Think when I did the last X55 of the day from Newcastle a few weeks back, there was six of us on-board with no-one boarding/alighting at Dalton Park, it picked a few in Hartlepool which was just people who would have just got on the 36 or whatever else would have turned up if the X55 hadn't first, unsure on the Billingham - Stockton stretch that night as I alighted at Billingham in the hope of getting a photo (I failed, wrong camera settings).

Cheers Dan and Jimmi! It seems that in order to attract customers to the service, they will have to try to gain passengers from GNE. Reduced fares is one method, however unless things change, that coach may be going for disposal in the future...

Did Stagecoach North East send any buses down to London for the World Athletics Championship shuttles. They took buses for Ryder Cup and Cheltenham Festival.

Information from "Steven Knight Media - Fleet News Ramblings":

Quote:✤Stagecoach North East
Another withdrawn MAN/ALX300 sold to Alpha Recovery is 22215, whilst similar 22071 has now received the mainly red training livery.

Here is a picture of 22071 (NK54 BFX) by Steven Hodgson, John Soutar & Mark McCann.

Is there a reason why non of the withdrawn 03/53 plate MANs have been disposed of yet - some of which have been withdrawn for a year.
