I understood what he meant the first time round, if that's any consolation.

49'lite will be doing last 2x 56 tonight
6082 TVT will be doing last 2x X1.

Both of which will be driven by members of this very forum, although I'll leave it up to the pictures to work out who done what when!

Yes the X9/X10’s are on the 97, just got a photo of 6310 in Newcastle. App seems to be on the blink as was showing 6167 on the 97 when it was clearly 6312.

Weird thought 6167 was still in the realms of unallocated.

The app is correct though, just the LDs haven't updated the recycled ticket machine.

If anyone is wanting to know, 6310, 6312 & 6314 are on the 97

Out of curiosity, What chassis has 9081 got?

Just a standard ADL Chassis with a Cummins 6.7 ISB Engine and a ZF EcoLife gearbox (same as the Classic E400s operated by ANE).

Didn't know ADL still offered ZF as an option.

Just heard on the radio . Go north east are upping the limit ( for a trial period) of con tactless payment up to £30 for £10. They are also reducing some weekly tickets by £5 to £30 so these can be bought on the bust using con tactless. Now that's a good idea

It also said later on last night 6150 was on 21. Could this be a mistake too?

Check out @gonortheast’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/gonortheast/status/1078308328449687552?s=09

Details of the January 'sale'.
I think it brings them down to the same level (or at least similar) to the fares, prior to last Januarys price increases.

Managed a short ride on the ADL demo (9081) earlier. Really good ride quality and it doesn't half shift. Shame it expired at the Galleries on Newcastle bound trip, and after 3x failed full resets, we were all chucked off.

cant complain if their reducing the price of a ticket even if it is just a short term promotion

Had a look in the pricing thread and copied the information over that Adrian shared at the time. 

Quote: 
1 Zone Week - Rises from £21.00 to £23.00 (9.52%)
2 Zone Week - Rises from £27.00 to £30.00 (11.1%)
3+ Zone Week - Rises from £34.00 to £35.00 (2.94%)

Sale prices. 
Quote:1 zone weekly – £20 (usually £23)
2 zone weekly – £25 (usually £30)
3 zone+ weekly – £30 (usually £35)
 

So actually lower than before the quoted price increase. 
Just wish these reductions were a permanent fixture!

Definitely a step in the right direction.

On aptyldsley's photo of 5201, he has mentioned that 5201 is expected to be withdrawn early in the new year.

Go North East 5201 NK54 NUU
The first of the penultimate batch of Wright Solar bodied Scania L94 to be purchased by Go North East, 5201 is expected to be withdrawn early in the new year.


Wonder whats replacing it?

edit:

Wonder if 4944 will be withdrawn too?

It's a Euro 4 example from checking the fleet list, so it did not get the Euro 5 mods. 

It will be one of 6 which remain in active service to be withdrawn, the others being 4944, 5229, 5230, 5231 and 5232, the other Euro 4's have either been withdrawn already or are driver trainers.

And 5201 was not the first of the penultimate batch to be withdrawn either, 5203 was way back in January of this year.

I think you may have misunderstood. Numerically, it was the first Solar to be bought in that batch, rather than withdrawn.
