It certainly was, it had been on the X84/X85 All Day!

Doing a spot of tree pruning in places along the way! ?

Yeah I know, was on it to Hexham going home from Newcastle. Kept jumping every time it hit trees hard. Those roads aren’t the best for a double decker though.

I have noticed that these B9s seem to be finding their way onto the X84/X85 on a regular basis recently.

May be because 5304 is currently in use at Riverside.

618 now withdrawn, so I'd expect Solos to creep up on that cycle more often...

No, they'll keep whatever seats they've got in them.

Tyne Valley Ten 6047 on Tynedale Express X85 through Corbridge towards Newbrough @ 10:55 today was standing room only until at least 20 upper deck pax got off at Corbridge Bridge End (headed for the Boot Fair).
Driver said that initial load at Eldon Square was 50, so a decker is probably a good thing.
I was the only one left on after Hexham new bus station until a couple joined at Priestpopple.

I don't know how many were on the Arriva 685 (which runs approximately half an hour out of phase).
