Nothing from Optare.

Good shout....maybe there could be 2 separate suppliers of singles or doubles!!

My thoughts are 6332 will provide the PVR increase.

Hmmm if there were 2 suppliers for DD; say ADL for E200 and E400, would it be possible for the these to be stationed at the same depot.......?

And the if Wright was the other DD supplier, would the streetdecks go where a similar vehicle type is already in operation?

Whilst there has been no mention of which depots will get what from the order, in time there'll be further team briefings of who'll get what and what routes they'll go on. And no doubt our MD will tweet pictures in the near future. However in my opinion the E200 & E400 will probably go to different depots, as for streetdecks, again i would imagine they'll not go to Chester, maybe not crook either. I suppose it all depends on what numbers you think have been ordered.

Maybe streetdecks for 10? With remaining for X1? B5s already at Riverside

Just my thoughts....with the hope of the 10 B9s going to crusader and X1 B9s replacing some of the older deckers

RE: Go North East: 2018/19 Financial Year Order Predictions
There's been rumours of deckers cascading for the 20 at Deptford for years, more so with this order, I'll believe it when I see it though.

Martijn has already confirmed 11 singles with Optare & Streetlites ruled out so far,  33 Doubles (although 34 have been ordered), again Optare Metrodeckers have been ruled out on this forum. Guess there'll be huge speculation on here to what's been ordered and where they'll go and what cascades will take place as a result.

Single deckers to Washington for the 4 - Enviro 200 


Deckers to:

Hexham/Riverside for the TEN (16 + 2 Spare) - B5TL 

Consett for the Red Kites (14 + 2 spare) - Enviro 400 



Cascades:


Citaro's to Riverside for Green Arrow 

Streetlites from Red Kite to Chester to replace some of the Versa (to the 13/14/X25 still interwork after changes or i'm i completely wrong?) 

B9's from Red Kite and TEN - Honestly not sure, probables replace Omnidekka's in to spare role, meaning the Omnidekka's will replace the older deckers in the fleet.
Ooo Friend, Bus Friend.

RE: Go North East: 2018/19 Financial Year Order Predictions
What no MetroDeckers.... BORING.

Guess I have to go to York for my MetroDecker fix.

Could be Volvo B8RLE with MCV Evora bodies or Volvo B5TL with MCV Evoseti bodies

I only mentioned because if X1 gets DD or other they could go on to replace Coaster and what would leave question of where they could go. However timetable would need to be sorted to make passenger number count.

Got the inside scoop on what the single deckers are but I don't think I will tell any of you.

Far more fun having you second guess yourselves  Tongue

That's what I was told when speaking with the other driver who came along with Dan from GNE and the EYMS driver on 396 this afternoon.

RE: Go North East: 2018/19 Financial Year Order Predictions
Wonder if GNE for the decker orders (given the nature of the alleged routes) have ordered the ADL E400MMC Bodywork with either the following:

- Scania N250UD
- Dennis Trident 2
- Volvo B5TL
- Volvo B8L
