I like the colour, honestly thought it would be the same colour as the B9's.

Nice to see theres tables in too. If you look at the rear of the lower saloon, looks like the leather in similar design to the refurbed mercs

Is the boom box in the luggage rack and the spoiler come up when you press on the accelerator  Wink

Take it although its a new colour, the big gold X will still be part of the Express branding?

Ye, but i just hope the "X" isn't really big, as it'll look daft.... they might of changed the brand completely though.... might not be called "Tyne Tees Xpress"

That would be a good idea, to set it out like the "Black Cats" and "Toonlink".

Anyone know if 4927 is out today ?

Don't know if this is true, but heard from a Stanley driver that next year the depot at Stanley is splitting. The 6, X30/1 and 47 are going to riverside and the rest of the routes are going down to a new proposed depot in Consett (not the old Delves Lane one). How much of this is true and/or even heard of?

Don't think such things would be confirmed, if true, and a very big if, until plans were in action and were finalised. Stuff like that is normally financially structured, as such is normally withheld from disclosure to even drivers and such until it actually concerns them. Better to play it by ear with these sorts of things. Whatever happens, happens - whatever doesn't - doesn't.

Interesting, would Riverside have room though?, unless other routes move out.


Just have to wait and see.
