Not bad buses tbh, won't be missed though... Wink


Where are they heading?, as they won't be withdrawn at the minute.


Not suprised if they all go too, with loads of buses pending withdrawl and with more deckers on order, not suprised.

GNE have lost almost all of their Nexus scholars contracts in the Gateshead, Sunderland, Washington areas, whether by being out bid, or as a policy change by GNE I don't know.

It will surely result in some very light boards, such as the peak hour Red Arrows X1s which will no longer have scholars to run off.

Possibly could be displaced by the L94 from Hexham once the citaros enter service on X84/ X85?

I Stanley are gaining 1 if not both the peak afternoon X21 runs from Newcastle to Durham, bus will drop onto 16/16a from Durham to Stanley, possible that Chester could regain the 265 run that deptford currently operate

Stanley have also lost the Thorpe academy & st Thomas more runs

One or both, there is actually three!

GNE have also deregistered with VOSA the Emmanuel College services as well, which I always assumed were commercial rather than Nexus contracts.
