Ugh, probably see it on NEXUS contract routes.


Reading a comment on Flickr, how the Aircon doesn't work properly.

Dread to think what it would be used on given that its a 16 seater. Looking forward to the comments from veg slating GNE, seem as some said GNE were crap/stupid for getting them little Solo's that seat 23 passengers

BT66TZM was in the region fairly recently with Hodgsons Coaches: https://flic.kr/p/T7xiFN

Sprinter an interestin move but not surprising considering Stagecoach doing little and often trial and Arriva trialling Similar smaller vehicles down south
Wistfully stuck in the 90s

The rest of the branding gets a thumbs up but I think a couple of places on the Heworth (Wardley) - Newcastle section could be removed in favour of a couple of places on the Newcastle - Hadrian Park section.

I agree very much an afterthought!

Seems like they used old route details then thought sh*t it goes to Hadrian Park now  Tongue

Not sure what the craic is tonight, but at least two vehicles have had problems with their wheels/tyres at the Lake Road roundabout.

A SR on the 237 is having work done on it's nearside as I type. Earlier on, a Durham bound purple Streetlite had a fitter working on it's offside.

I can think of some Tynedale Links services that would manage with 16 seats . . .

Vehicle depreciation and fuel would be lower than Solos.

The cant rail is planned to be stripped and replaced with a similar style depicted by the OmniDekka on the timetable for the revised 6 service prior to 21st May.

This work is being carried out today and tomorrow, now that all of the former 12/12A OmniCitys are at Stanley.

I then looked and realised that this totalled 9 vehicles there are currently 9 'indiGo' branded vehicles without Next Stop Announcements (625/7/31/2 at Percy Main and 701-705 at Washington). Could it be possible that the systems will be refitted into these vehicles?

650 - 652 had their Next Stop Announcements removed today too, so I think we'll have to knock that idea on the head!  Tongue

Looks good imo.

Can the 36 be allocated deckers, or is there a LB near Silksworth or something?

I can imagine the day that a Hybrid crawls through Sunderland Interchange.

I'm always tempted to report to Rare/Odd working when all 4 versas are on the 34/34A.
