6010 is fine, on 137 scholars. Doesnt do a 681.

I have seen 6010 on the 681 a few times, must do the 794 afterwards as sometimes the display is already changed.

When did they replace the "where this bus terminates" on the NSA? I'm sure it wasn't like that yesterday!
The new version is much better, it doesn't sound like it's just been tacked on the end, plus it reminds me I'm travelling with Go North East which I always seem to forget!

On a second note, 6302 had an awful rattle on one of the upstairs window when idle, was driving me crazy!


RE: Go North East: Latest News & Discussion - December 2018 - Michael - 07 Dec 2018

New announcement on the 8 "please take personal belongings and we hope to see you ride with Go North East again"

Or something like that

Sounds better

We just had that on the X21 as well, certainly much better than the old one. I don't know why it wasn't like that from the start!

Does anyone know what was up at Bishop Auckland Bus Station earlier? There's a bit of the fence missing in the island so I assume a bus hit it. Arriva say it wasn't one of theirs

Scarlet Band Solo went into the fence.

Was it trying to get round one of the Arriva buses that doesn't know how to park? I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often tbh

Here's for your daily confused face moment if that wasn't enough.

Annnoyingly when heading into central Newcastle the majority of drivers on the Fab56, CityLink58 and Angel21 seem to set the return destination before we reach the last or even second last stop, which has confused me on a few occasions nevermind any blind or visually impaired passengers.
Glad to hear the gap between the last stop name and ‘where this bus terminates’ has been reduced, although I rarely get to hear it anyway.
