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.

5451 now has feature symbols but as per 5452, the offside vinyls are not in the standard position.

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