1759 out on the 64 today. No sign of 4516 in depot either.

What Euro are the DAF SB120s? And how do I find out the Euro standard for each vehicle?


RE: Arriva North East: Latest News & Discussion - July 2019 - omnicity4659 - 03 Jul 2019

On the fleet list

Well it turns out I have already viewed that millions of times, and there is definitely no mention of 'Euro' or anything related.

The column headed "EURO", to the right hand side of the page?


Maybe not so visible if you're not using a laptop or desktop.



The DAF SB120s are all Euro 2 according to the list, the newer VDL SB120s with Plaxton Centro bodywork are shown as Euro 3.

It's viewable on the main fleetlist page (not when viewing the specific bus). But depends on if viewing PC or Mobile (i.e. how big your window is) as the content is responsive to that. If on mobile, view the page as 'Desktop Site' through your  Mobile browser settings/tools.

"I believe 1759 and 4516 are both technically withdrawn already."

1759 is Reserve but 4516 isn't Reserve or Disposal. Both were on 64s on Tuesday. 1759 (and 4516??) has been re-tested since it was first listed for Disposal.

Decker 742*
Solo
And a streetlite

All parked up at the bottom corner of redcar depot today

The North East will be receiving 6x 58 plate 'MAX' Enviro 400s from Yorkshire.
I take it these will end up replacing the 'MAX' Geminis which are now 17 years in service...

Can see these going on 306. Tbh the Geminis work more often than the pulsars and i find them to be a better ride than the pulsars too

The 306/308 used to be a good set of services, although with the 308 going MAX, then months loosing it's Hybrid vehicles just to receive some VDL Geminis from Yorkshire just totally downgraded the service.


As for the 306, it's not an express service so has no purpose being branded as "MAX", and with some of the oldest buses in the depot allocated just shows it's not the most important service in the depot, compared to 2014 when it received brand new buses.


I think it would be nice to have the 306 in the same livery as the 308, therefore prevents a mixture of brands operating on these services.

Heard they're off to Durham for the X46

The DB300s are in the same spec as the former MAX brand, just without a crap outdated livery.

That might be the case, although it took a while to have them refurbished. Additionaly they have downgraded the route completely, with GNE investing in the 309 with more features on-board, which seemingly may appeal to a few passengers...

Oh GNE have tables, fake wood flooring, flappy seats to put my feet on and next stop announcements... lovely, I'll pay a bit more for that


RE: Arriva North East: Latest News & Discussion - July 2019 - Rob44 - 15 Jul 2019

Have to say i wouldn't let a 306/308 go past just so I can get on a newer bus, with table, wifi etc etc. And Im sure 90% of fellow passengers would agree TBH

Depends on how much of a rush I was in, but personally, I used to nearly always let the Stagecoach 4 go past me in South Shields to get the GNE 35 to the Nook 10 years ago when they were new, although if I'd just missed a 35, I didn't mind getting Stagecoach. I don't think I'm the only one with the same mindset either, I appreciate having a nicer place to sit.




RE: Arriva North East: Latest News & Discussion - July 2019 - Rob44 - 15 Jul 2019

each to there own but i would think the majority of people only really want to get from a to b in the quickest time possible I now live in a GNE area and TBH when i used to live in an arriva area I cant say theirs enough difference to let a bus go past just for a nicer place sit.

Following on from the accident 1417 was involved in is it like to return in the new livery
