I think it was the 15:05 10A from Newcastle to Blackhall Mill arriving at 16:18 so it will be at Blaydon at 15:35. Not sure what it will do after that unless it hangs around for the 16:54 departure.

Yes that's correct managed to get a photo of it, next ones to get are the B&H OmniDekka's before they are repainted. Might try that tomorrow

I'm out tomorrow, going to see more of South West Gateshead/Durham amongst others. Hopefully can catch at least a sight of the garish bus that's causing the fuss!

V986ETN is my contender to stay, it replaces W183SCU and is a pretty quick motor. No trouble going up A692's Watergate Bank!

Yeah, 4896 is only a temporary replacement. An Omnidekka is likely to replace 4896 as a more permanent replacement.

I'd hope all the B10s were gone this time next year. They were a great bus of their time, but that's in the past now.

Using the logic of float or reinstated vehicles, it should be 4896, 4907, 4925, 5167 and 5170 to go next. But then others might go before them, if they're in similar circumstances to 4909.

I agree, There is a few god runners in the batch but the Majority are shot, Id think they'd be a welcome addition to a Independent operator looking for cheap DDA Replacements though.

5170 has been at Stanley for a few days now. I can't see it being there for much longer considering it is part of the 82s PVR at Washington.

It's powerful, but you need ear plugs!

Any chance of the demo/loan/whatever we're calling it ending up trialing on the 21? Hybrids due off next year and the two 2006 models are a bit ropey
Wistfully stuck in the 90s
