As for the "Shitelite" I think that'll go to Riverside for the Quaylink, if not Stanley on the ToonLinks.

Yes - Strata to be allocated to the 185/681 cycle as usual (only thing that it's suitable to evaluate performance on, really). This releases a Solo SR to operate the 680S Brunton Crossroads service. Streetlite to be allocated to the 34 at Chester-le-Street - filling the void on this service.

Fleet numbers to be allocated this morning - quite likely that the Streetlite will be out in service by this afternoon, for those interested.

Washington have been undertaking a lot of work on 3941/42, so that they're "on par" with 3943 so to speak.

3941 has only just recently returned to service, but 3942 hasn't been back out in service yet. This is why the OmniDekkas have yet to transfer to Stanley (and why Stanley retain the last B7/Tridents).

Nothing set in stone for the Streetlite, but the Strata is only here for two weeks (will be returned on Friday 17th November).

9091 (LM17 WHD) below:

9094 was the orange Optare Solo used at Deptford: http://northeastbuses.co.uk/fleet/item.p...etnoF=9094

There will be no 9093.

Can we use Go North East passes on the 40/40A/40B?

Has a Scania gone to Washington to replace 5338?, since that's gone for refurbishment.

While I remember:

What is the reasoning for some of the Versas (8322 & 8327 at least) having larger 'via' points the destinations, matching the size of the main terminal point? They seem to be the standard 144x19 display so I can't think of any reason as to why they would need to display things differently.
