Very likely to return to Walkergate this weekend with the new academic year kicking off next week, meaning that service 1 returns to full PVR - plus service changes come into action on Sunday.

It may well be needed back for tomorrow to boost numbers on Metro Replacement.

Returned last night.

Seems to be how Stagecoach do their repaints - re-fit windows when they get back to the home depot, as opposed to just covering them up.

Seeing as it hasn't been repainted for ten years, it needs to be smartened up.

Anyone know what the 'ND10' and 'GD15' services requiring ADL E400s at Slatyford are on the P3 fleetcard?

The new Nexus Misc Works contracts Stagecoach were awarded.

That is the board number.

Saw what looked like an Alx300 in Driver Training livery being given a lift by a breaker this morning.
Just at the bottom of John Reid Road, heading away from Shields. 
Too far away to Id properly.

Does the board number cover more than one service?  They won four AM and four PM runs - but only two boards?

22424 is one of the 30 Alexander Dennis ALX300-bodied MANs delivered to the Yorkshire division in 2007 - unlike the rest of the ALX300s, these are 18.240s same as the E300-bodied examples (and 22508-15) which only delivered with ALX bodywork as the revised E300 styling wasn't completed at that stage. The majority of the 30 in Yorkshire are now withdrawn either awaiting disposal or further use within the group (a small amount are being used in a reserve capacity in Yorkshire).

Not 18.220, 18.240 - it's a Euro4 example.
