Sorry - this one seems to have escaped discussion on this forum I think - which E400s have been painted (and ideally when, for our news update)?

In Michael's defence it did seem that Stagecoach were having a shut-down period on repaints, given the lack of reports and my own personal sightings of nothing at the back of the Wheatsheaf, whenever I've driven past.

Yeah December is pretty much shutdown with nothing much going through, although the two trainers 22074  and 22076 went through the week before Christmas. The 60 plate E400 were continuing to go through running up to December, I say running, the first one (19670) was painted back in February 2015 with none done since - 19673 (Nov), 19674 (Oct), 19676 (Nov), 19678 (Nov), 19681 (Oct). The repainted ones have gained large off side adverts for Misguided Womenswear similar to 19442's H&M one.

Away from winter paints, (I'll try and report future ones a bit more precisely); others which went through last year of knowledge were 19207 (Feb), 19213 (Aug), 19216 (Apr), 19195 (November), 19203 (Jan), 19380 (Sep), 19386 (Apr), 19389 (Sept), 19340 (Aug), 19433 (Jun), 19434 (Apr), 19437 (Aug), 19438 (Jul), 19441 (Jul). 22020 was also repainted prior to being reactivated at Stockton in November too. If anyone can add any more for myself that would be appreciated...

22020 wasn't prior to being deactivated, it had already been back in service. Was 24102 done recently as well?

Does the 18 really require a DD more than the routes they are used for at Slatyford ? Im doubtful

A solo would suffice most of the time.

It's light during the day, but you obviously don't see it at 8'oclock in the morning when there's noses pressed against the glass going towards Benton and the Freeman!
When the 18 ran to Four Lane Ends in the mornings they used a decker which dropped onto one of the first Buddle Road 1's. It's justified deckers at peak times, but must be more beneficial to fully allocate rather than interwork further boards.

This sounds like every other route bar the 60s at Slatyford at peak times, MAN infestation.

There was a Dots E300 on 13 this afternoon too. I guess they get allocated when they're short. The 13 also gets anything that is poorly or is due in for inspection as it passes the depot gates so is easy to get buses off. Equally they'll be replaced with whatever is fixed or off inspection in the depot.
