Although this was post a while back, i still doubt it, as they haven't bothered to upload the 40/40A/40B or the 86 timetable on their site yet.

Wouldn’t be too worried, only carries 5 or so people a day, should be coming off soon.

I would be worried if I was one of the 5 waiting with a few bags of frozen shopping though.

The provision of a bus service was a condition of the Tesco planning permission:-
Quote:One condition was that bus services would be provided during the life of the store unless otherwise approved.

Now it appears that a further LIDL store is planned for Delves Lane.

Two further demonstrator vehicles in at Go North East are:
- a full-size Streetlite Micro-Hybrid 3 (SK17 HHL), which is the same one Arriva North East had in August
- a Mellor Strata minibus (LM17 WHD).

The Streetlite was delivered this afternoon, while the Strata will be delivered tomorrow morning.

The Tyne Valley Ten livery has vinyls advertising NSAs (Talking bus) - whereas the vehicles have not had NSAs for many many months.

Is it absolutely necessary to go over this again?

Why advertise a feature that doesn't exist?

I would think the Mellor Strata will be going to Hexham to be trialled on the 185/681.

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

I see the Mellor Strata is for sale on their website at £89500 + VAT

I believe it is for the 680 shuttle bus, hence why 636 has left Hexham.
