3885 - 3887 and 3889 all went to Saltmeadows Road at the start of this year to have new rear route number displays fitted and side LED displays fitted (if they didn't already have them fitted).

Again, all were working whenever this was done.

Hopefully getting some sort of branding..... Wink

Think they're all VOR due to various problems.

Solo was in Arriva depot for his lunch break on the 434 as there is no where for it to park in the temp bus station without blocking other buses.

Do Percy Main need more Solar's since the increase in PVR, as it was mainly the Solo routes which had an increase.

Scania's for the 19?  Angel Angel Angel

Replacements for 4962-64 (which are being converted to Driver Training vehicles like 4961/65).

Which Scania's have gone to Percy Main from Deptford?

Daft question but are all of the 52 reg Scania's moving to Driver Training? (expect for 4966, which is Euro 5)

4946 & 4954 were transferred to Percy Main this morning from Deptford.  4955 transferred a few weeks ago.

4992 has been VOR for over a month with engine issues.  The others have been out on service.

Blaydon racers in Black maybe?, I would doubt they'll retain the toon link brand, I have a feeling it'll be a Stanley depot brand only ?
