Right click the image, click 'Copy Image URL' then paste that onto the forum but type [ IMG] before the link and [ / IMG] (without the spaces) before and after it.

Cheers Dan, saved it in my draft box on here haha.

Wonder what route that will be trailed on? One of the indiGo routes maybe to compare against the Solos.

Dan, due to the new Friday Night kick offs being introduced in the Premier League, if Newcastle (or Sunderland for that matter)managed to survive relegation and played on a Friday next season, would 1 if not more, B9s be allocated to the N56?

I doubt it because they'll finish at 21:45 if they're 8 kick offs. Probably no need really.

More likely id imagine, Tynedale Links is too demanding for a Voith in my opinion.

EDIT The WF Streetlite in the pic above is the one Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire had on trial at Carlisle a few months ago.

Maybe 82/85/86...

Has someone mixed the boards up today? 4898 has just operated the short 88A to Jarrow 5 mins ago, 5 mins later 8295 appears on another short 88A to Jarrow.

Though earlier there was a large gap between services around half 3, So maybe now is the earliest they could fill the time gap between buses?

Could 4898 not have been 25 minutes late? Half an hour (and an 88 Lukes Lane) separates the 88A shorts

There's only 1 Short 88A to Jarrow, The 88A half an hour earlier runs to Lukes Lane. I haven't took notice of the times today mind.

On a Saturday the short 88A just runs as a full 88A to Lukes Lane.

Maybe but I'd think they would want to compare it against the Solos.

You sure? One 88A departs South Shields to Jarrow at 17:08 followed by the 88 to Lukes Lane at 17:25. There is then another 88A to Jarrow from South Shields at 17:40.

Ah, Prior to Riverside gaining the 88/88A, The 17:08 Short 88A used to be a 17:05 88A to Lukes Lane while the 17:40 has always been a short.
Apoligies.

Was another B10BLE ever withdrawn following the transfer of 4942 & 4943 to Riverside?
