Not sure where to put this but the remainder of the old Odeon has just collapsed across Pilgrim Street. Potential chaos tomorrow for some services.

Pics on twitter etc

I'll need to get an hour's earlier sleep than normal... too late!
Hope everyone is safe...

When I was last in that part of the town, I noticed that the scaffolding had made a mess of the flag at that stop. It was all mangled and crumpled.

It's made a little bit more of a mess with the shelter at that stop now!

6126 came out of the paintshop in black, this morning.

I wonder what this could mean?! ;-)

I get a feeling you'll see it on the X30 as well as a few others!!, wonder if we'll see it in toon link livery?

Certainly suggests that they will be allocated to a service alongside Omnicities. In which case, I would hope that the ones being repainted are retrimmed just to tidy them up a bit.

Send it back, send it back!
Alpha would take kindly!

I half knew about a [redacted], but I thought they'd be sending them all to replace those horrible B7s. Maybe they will!
I always thought they'd look good in black.

The content of the changes around stanley hasn't exactly been kept secret. Some magazine came out and it's everywhere - even has been passed onto random questioning passengers, although the vosa regs gave a large amount of it away. I like speculation, as everyone should know. In NEB spirit, lets do what enthusiasts do best and speculate some more


...on a seperate note, is 5249 fitted with one of those spooky big brother machines, as opposed to just standard CCTV? It looks like 6122s CCTV but has a glowing green light.

Fitted with a DriveCam - which is sort of like a telematics system combined with CCTV. In the event of harsh acceleration/braking etc, the CCTV of the road in front and the driver's cab will automatically be downloaded and sent to the Depot Manager to view, within minutes of it happening.

The trial is ongoing at Washington, so 5248/49 will need to donate these cameras to 5337/38.
