I would agree with the amount of trials the 4 has had in the last few weeks, this route will most likely get new buses, whether 200MMC or Metrocity i'm not sure, although i did have a drive or the Metrocity when Stanley had it and its a much better drive than the current streetlites. With the red arrows not getting refurbed (just internal update), i again think that this will get 400MMCs. But something mentioned on our grapevine at Stanley is the "new depot new buses" theory, so i wouldn't rule out the Red Kite from going all double deck in the form of either 400MMC or Metrodecker. Some might argue that the 45/46/47 doesn't need the capacity, but in my opinion at peak times, loadings would suggest and thinking of those routes with older vehicles 6/35/93/94/97/97A/X30/X31 are GNE willing to spend money on brand new buses when the figures might not add up, or cascade from routes that are making money?.
