As Go North East welcome EYMS to the family, NEB will also welcome EYMS to the discussion board.

EYMS remains a separate entity to Go North East and as such we've decided to isolate discussion of EYMS from the main Go North East threads (unless the discussion crosses over between both operators, i.e. a Go North East bus being transferred to EYMS or vice-versa).

We've also set up a new fleet list, which will be updated periodically. You will also be able to view EYMS news and EYMS photos.

Please feel free to share NEB with any friends you may have in Yorkshire, who follow EYMS and would like to discuss their operations!  Smile

Does anybody know where I can find 'On The Yorkshire Buses' that was on Channel 5 in 2013?

I've been looking for ages and drawn a blank.

Just a few for the fleetlist

Scarborough's B5TLs 804-6, as well as Pocklington's 808, have now lost their 121 branding following the split at Bridlington. B9TL/E400 722-6 have had their '120/X20' branding slightly amended, with the 120/X20 removed but the 'Scarborough Filey Bridlington' destinations retained.

Also of note, B7TL Open Topper 886 has 'East Yorkshire' logos with branding for Bridlington Open Top service 100.

It may be worth you contacting the production company? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3902838/

That's updated now!

Not too sure on some of the liveries, nor was I sure on which buses had which features. For now, anyway!

Continued here for relevance. Overall its looking pretty good with a only a small number of changes needed which I have listed below:

- 592 carries the updated livery, commemorating the Battle of Passschendaele
- 668 is also currently on loan to TM Travel alongside 650
- 703/705/708/709 are branded for services 103/105 
- 741 no longer branded Valerider
- 743 carries a special livery for Hull Children's University
- 804/805/806 no longer branded for service 121
- 815 not branded for X46
- 886 is now at Bridlington for the summer season and is branded for service 100
- YX02 LFU is 9919, not 9917 (suspect typo given the correct 9917 is also present)

I imagine that whether the bus carries the slightly updated version of the EYMS livery is a concern, so I have avoided typing out the somewhat extensive list.

EDIT: I did try and move threads, clearly hasn't worked. Apologies.

Updated accordingly and moved to this thread for you, cheers.

Also updated 703, 705, 708 and 709 so that they are shown to be equipped with Wi-Fi.

Thanks - as I said I tried to be smart and do it myself.

One I have missed is that 764 carries the 'Airbrush' livery

Also sorted, and all of the newer Volvo B9s updated to be Gemini 2s.

Apologies for yet another post (I'll make sure its my last one for tonight), but I've done some digging regarding buses with WiFi:

Ones that I am certain of are 392/4, 790/1/2/3 and I think that's just about it. I haven't been able to find any evidence to suggest that 393 and 395 have WiFi or not, but it would be somewhat logical to think that they do given 392/4 have received it.

804 - 815 are fitted with tables, but that isn't a feature included on this site's fleet lists.

Hi,  A few updates for you fleet list;

650 is currently withdrawn at Hull.(was on loan to TM Travel)
669 is at TM Travel(replacing 650). We have just MOT'd it. 
668 is also at TM Travel, accident damaged. This was the original bus loaned to them, but was damaged in a RTC on its first day out. I remember TM picking it up on the Sunday, only to return on the Tuesday to pick up 650. 

700 is also a 103/105 liveried bus.(Plus wifi)

772-776 also have wifi fitted. The entire Withernsea fleet was fitted around two years ago.
Everything from 790 onwards is also wifi equipped, to the best of my knowledge. 790 was a reserve bus for X46's, and 791/2 were branded for X46 when new, so were fitted with wifi. 
906-910 are equipped with wifi, using the boxes from buses cascaded from Withernsea when they received 798-803 new. 
332 and 335 were wifi equipped, as they were used on services 78/79 to Hedon(On the Withernsea corridor.)I will have to check whether this is still fitted.
392/394 are wifi equipped for the 122 service Hull to Beverley.
Some swapping around of wifi equipment has taken place. I can ask our Chief Engineer for an up to date fleet list wit all the info. 

All NX coaches are wifi equipped, and have 3-pin charging sockets

Coach 94 has USB sockets. 

I shall try and send as much up to date information as I can. I'm looking forward to a new era.

Excellent - thanks for the help and welcome to the forum! Hopefully more good things to come in future and plenty for us to discuss.

Hi,

393/395 do not have wifi. 392/394 were fitted after entering service. Everything from 790 onwards was fitted from new. There has been quite a bit of swapping around with the wifi boxes. 735/6/7/8, 753 were fitted, but the boxes removed when they were transferred from Withernsea Depot. The boxes were used to equip 906-910. 698 was also fitted, as a reserve 103/105 bus, but I believe this has been removed. 

795 also has tables. It was an ex-demo, and it was the feedback from passengers after it entered service that led to EYMS specifying tables in the 804-815 batch.

Hi there, thank you for clearing that up. As EYMS-land is kind of a second home to me, it's quite nice now having the ability to keep more up-to-date with the fleet position.

As a further update to the fleet, the 'EYMS Enthusiasts' twitter page (tweet dated 22/5) shows that 308, 309 and 314 were all sold to MP Travel, and 308 can be seen below:

Don't know much about EYMS but hopefully we see it expand.

Sure i read they have a coach depot?, could see the Coaches from Chester-le-street depot move down that way.

I couldn't.

The coach depot is at Hull (shares with the main Hull service fleet I believe, much like Chester-le-Street up here) and would be totally impractical for the GNE National Express operations to move down there.

There would be a canny bit of dead mileage if that was the case.

Imagine the drivers hours for those runs starting/finishing in Shields or Newcastle?
