Probably a bit too early for the 23 - that doesn't start until 22nd July.

The only other depot that would have Washington destinations programmed in and are in need of minibuses is Peterlee (I think!).

No, got to be percy, we're still borrowing 654 from Peterlee.

So it basically can be from any depot since every depot has access to an X1 with that in mind.

Deptford, Washington & Peterlee all have the same destinations in there buses.  Crook, Stanley & Chester all have the same destinations.  Riverside, Hexham & Percy Main all have the same destinations.

They already have the system fitted (that's why the Red Arrows batch of B9s are so sluggish compared to the rest) - they're just undergoing some further work.

Their speed (or lack of) particularly on the fast slip roads on the Washington Highway has been mentioned a few times on here over the years.
The last time I managed to get an Omnidekka on there, the difference was noticeable.
Even with the extra weight it was carrying that day.

I believe some will go to Chester Le Street, possibly for cathedral bus.

What does the future hold for Stanleys remaining Tooklink Omnidekkas

I seen two out in service today, both on Toonlink services.

I'm assuming they acting as spares short term, but are they expected to be withdrawn once the Newer longer Omnidekkas are in service?

Just Passed Toonlink B9 - (Think it was 6150 LJ62KCU off route) broken down on A691 Lanchester to Leadgate just before Delves/Hurbuck junction - Holding up traffic, already right back into Lanchester and growing. No breakdown yet in attendance. Wonder how reliable these ex London buses will be.

There are a few that sound rough, but the rest are what you'd expect. They're comfy and do the job.
