Go North East: Latest News & Discussion - September 2015

3814 sounds fantastic. The most genuine sounding Olympian at Stanley and it doesn't go WHOOSH when the doors open either. Its more of a 'psh' that you can barely hear. Its the lack of power when going up banks which spoils it for me.

Yes it does not sound the best but it sounds decent to me,  I suppose everyone has their opinions.

EDIT One B10BLE that sounds great is 4913

Yeah 4913 is great, but ruined by the irritating indicator beep.

Someone forgot to read the website last year to know he wouldn't be able to get to South Shields on service 50A... Wink

Mentions the 83, which now no longer serves Heworth. Also, the 35A diversion mentions diverting via White Mere Pool Roundabout, but surely this won't be possible with the run using the roundabout to get from the Felling By-pass to Leam Lane?

The one day I don't have a bus service apart from Christmas and New Year is Boxing Day because Arriva have an extra day in bed

You'd have liked this post too: Percy Main's dual-door Volvo B10BLE/Wright Renown 5165 (T815 CBW) has now been withdrawn from service.

First day back at school for DanPicken today, and I'm intrigued to hear if Gateshead Central Taxis operated his scholars service from the day which the contract was due to commence on the invitation to tender? He seems convinced that Go North East has 'messed up the timetables' (even though it's Nexus who creates timetables for secured services)...  :s

Rather glad that there is a new decker (3874) at Stanley for me to ride on. Gets boring having the same ones over and over again. Of course, when i say new, i don't mean that as i had ridden it before when it was based at Stanley before transferring out.

There's no need to be cocky... It was operated by GCT with the Gelards(?) Trident and the driver got lost a few times as Nexus gave him a route which was marked out wrong so I got off at the stop round the corner which is closer for me and don't blame me for Vosa making a mistake and my scholars has always changed the second week.

Seems the examples with the most character in them are being withdrawn first... 3865 was always one of my favourites as well because it was frequently allocated to my scholars on an evening.
